Prior experience canyoneering is not necessary for any of our adventure challenges.
The Seattle Canyoneering Adventure, the Family Canyoneering Adventure, and the Private Waterfall Tour! were designed with beginners in mind!
The Whitewater Canyoneering Adventure is also appropriate for beginners, but the challenge requires more resiliency and physical fitness than the other trips. The Vertical Canyoneering Adventure is designed for those experienced with exposure to heights. Honestly evaluate yourself and every member of the trip before signing up for this challenge if you have never been canyoneering before.
Seattle area Wild Sky Challenges meet up at Mt. Erie at 9:00 AM.
We have designed this climbing trip to last around 6 hours, so expect to finish around 3:00 - 4:00 PM.
Remember that this is an adventure activity. Return time is only an estimate. Trips may return earlier or later than the given time for various reasons outside of our control.

Guiding is considered a service industry profession. Most people tip around the same percentage as they would tip at a restaurant.
Climbing is an inherently dangerous activity.
At Wild Sky we follow a philosophy of risk management called Expedition Style Behavior.
All of our guides carry an extensive First Aid Kit, and phones to communicate with First Responders.
