Be a Local explorer!

If B.C. is home, then you know how adventurous we can get just 10 kilometres from downtown Vancouver, but did you know you can recreate your own Indiana Jones-like experience venturing through world-class canyons and waterfalls?
Let us help you safely discover some of the incredible beauty of the North Shore mountains coastal rainforest and experience this new astonishing activity. 
We believe being outdoors isn’t just about exploring and pushing ourselves, it’s also about the peaceful and nourishing moments spent quietly together. We promise to keep a small number of participants for each guide to ensure you a personal and memorable experience.

COVID-19 risk mitigation.

WCCA takes the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and understands that we all need to work together to limit transmission, protect vulnerable citizens, and prevent community transmission. This is an added risk to our outdoor activity, but we are no strangers to managing risk with solid protocols and Personal Protective Equipment. After all risks management is what we do and we do it well!

Canyoning emphasis on aesthetics and fun rather than pure difficulty. Canyoning or Canyoneering (in the US) is traveling in canyons using a variety of techniques that may include other outdoor activities such as walking, scrambling, climbing, jumping,  rappelling(abseiling) and swimming.

Your words, not ours



Absolutely epic adventure! I had virtually no prior canyoning experience and I felt very comfortable and safe with FX throughout the entire experience. I learned a ton and had lots of fun.

I would highly recommend this adventure!



EPIC!!! So much better than I even hoped. FX  made us feel confident and secure throughout this adventure. Very committed to making it memorable, enjoyable and fun for us! 


Exactly the first exposure to canyoning I was looking for. FX is a very competent canyoner and a great guide. Coming from a rock climbing background. Had a great day, highly recommend it!
