My sister and I celebrated her half century mark by booking a tour with River Runners. And this company did NOT disappoint! The company is professional, well-organized and safety conscious. Our guide, Kevin was well informed about the area - sharing facts about geography and local wildlife. The tour began with a stop on a sandbar in the middle of... More

Riding the tidal bores was amazing. To be right in the highest tide in the world, gave a great perspective on how quick the water goes up. Starting off on the sandbanks and were able to see the tide come up before we got started. Once in the tide rafting started it was unreal and very exciting. The company had... More

This is a top knotch organization. It's obvious from the time you enter the doors that everyone loves what they do. The tidal bore rafting trip was a blast and being in the middle of the tidal bore was awesome. Angus, our guide was tremendous. He was skillful, funny and a wealth of knowledge of the Bay of Fundy as... More

What a wild ride we had! We went on the highest tide of the summer, and even our zodiac driver was amazed by the height of the tidal bore and the power of the rapids which are formed as the incoming tide comes up against the outgoing tide and the contours of the sandbars in the river. The company is... More

We had an awesome time at River Runners! The outfit is very well run and organized. The staff were very helpful in getting us outfitted with our gear, and our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced. She took us over about 6 sets of rapids, pointed out a huge eagle nest, showed us the remnants of a century-old dyke system,... More

Had a glorious day on the river yesterday. Chelsea was our very able and friendly guide and she gave us a thrilling couple of hours riding the waves, getting very, very wet and laughing a lot. I've been out rafting several times before but never with River Runners. I would definitely go with the, again. It's obvious the owners care... More

SRR provided the required life jackets as well as yellow slicker jackets, pants, and even galoshes for those who needed them. we were a little doubtful about needing the rain slickers because it was so hot, but boy are we glad we took them! we set out at low...

We did an evening run, since the Tidal Bore was at 6:30 PM. Our guide Chelsea was great. I was a bit nervous initially, but it was great fun. Chelsea was informative, and friendly, she was terrific! The tidal bore, was really interesting. Fifty billion tons of water rush in to cover the mud flats/sand bar, the water level rises... More

We chose this company based on its great TripAdvisor reviews, and it lived up to its reputation! Our guide, Keith, was excellent and super friendly. We had a great time and highly recommend doing this if you like water park rides, because that's pretty much what it felt like! Tons of fun!
