Explore Where Few Others Have Been With Our Brand New Adventure Experience

A Breathtaking Half Day Adventure Up The Storms River Gorge

“We want to go further!”, is what so many of our visitors say when they reach the Kayak and Lilo turn-around point. Until now it has been impossible since the Kayaks and Lilos are too difficult to carry, but we have listened to you and have worked hard to develop a brand new Half Day Adventure Trip that takes the more adventurous soul deep into the Storms River Gorge – way past the turn-around point of the Kayak and Lilo trip.

Half Day Adventure Trip

We equip you with a uniquely designed Anvil boat which is a combination of the kayak and lilo. But don’t let the name fool you; they are easy to paddle over the long, bottomless pools while you take in the remarkable scenery, deep caves and ancient forests with nothing but the quiet noises of nature around you. You do need to be fit and strong to be able to carry the Anvils over rocks but the beauty is well worth the hard work!

1. Forest hike to the suspension bridge

Walk to the Storms River Gorge for 20min through beautiful forest and over the famous suspension bridge that crosses the ocean.

2. Explore the Storms River Gorge

Start the Adventure trip with our unique Anvil boats. Swim up the gorge past caves, forest and high cliffs. Deep into the gorge, we carry the boats like a backpack over the rocks until we reach a deep long pool with dark Tannen water.

3. Jump from the cliffs

On the trip back, we add a healthy dose of adrenaline where you will be given the exhilarating opportunity to leap off the overhanging cliff walls of the gorge into deep pools. This offers not only a good test of your bravery but also some good occasions for laughter (or nervous giggling), friendly encouragement (or daring) and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities (because you will need to brag to your buddies at home!). Although cliff jumping is not compulsory – you can simply enjoy the spectacle as you leisurely float on the long pools below – we do recommend not missing out on the thrill!
