We are in the middle of the rainy season right now - and it is rain we have long been looking forward to.
However, the recent thunderstorms and high winds prompted us to cancel most of our tours last week.
Cancellations were not made for the reasons that many of our prospective guests initially assumed.
At Canyoning Korea, our guides are very capable in higher water levels. Our specialist training and diverse range of experience enables us to set the appropriate lines and systems within our chosen canyons.
It is our ability to identify the pertinent risks that sets us apart from other activity providers here, and gives you a reason to trust us.
Whilst not indicative of the wider status quo in our industry, I have had experiences with some past employers where I was asked to lead groups in conditions that I felt exceeded the reasonable level of risk.
As a recreational canyoneer, I often relish the opportunity to play in higher water and more extreme weather, but I cannot in good conscience take clients out in situations where an amount of random risk is introduced.
As guests on our tours, you trust us to make many decisions for you, and we want you to know that we'll only take you out in conditions that can be appropriately controlled.
Those past experiences had a profound influence on my ambition to create a responsible company that will not place money ahead of your safety.
Hindsight offering the level of clarity that it does, we could say that one or two of those cancelled tours may have been ok to run last week.
But at the time, there was no way to know with any certainty that things would not go wrong.
We're content with the decisions we have made, and will continue to operate the same.
