My whole family had a fantastic day. Both my sons said it was "the best day of my life". River Runners runs a fantastic operation.

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip in Nova Scotia. We booked in advance and everything was organized very well. The tour provides you with rain jackets, pants and boots. Socks are highly recommended. You will get wet despite all the protective gear, but that's part of the fun. Our guide was Angus and he was friendly... More

I was very nervous about this adventure but we were lucky enough to get Connor as our guide and he calmed my fears and keep us all laughing to whole time. It was a beautiful day for rafting and I was impressed with the quality of not only the equipment but the also how great the staff were and a... More

I read about this a few years ago and have wanted to go ever since. Finally realized that dream on Sunday September 22. The weather was perfect and our guide Connor kept us entertained the whole way. Well worth every penny!

we had a great time. We had never gone river rafting before but this was awesome. Our guide Conner knew the river well and made our trip the highlight of our stay in nova scotia. Add this to your must do list!

I had an absolute blast doing this! It was a great time - I would definitely do it again. I went out with five friends - we laughed the entire time!

Went out with 6 people at the crack of dawn (630am approximately) on Sunday, September 15th, 2013. Connor knows the waters well and really showed us what the bay can throw at you. Will have to try this again. Highly enjoyable and by the end you may be worn out and soaking wet, and best of all you will want... More

I was part of a group of 8 who went out on the high tides in late August. We are all from Hants County but had never gone out before to "ride the tide". It was a so much fun and exhilarating! Our guide, Conor, knew how hard to push the boat so that those not paying attention would get... More

I recently got married and as a treat the 3 sister-in-laws booked an early morning raft trip for the 3 brothers and us (their wives) with the River Runners. We ended up with Keith as our guide and had no real idea what we were to expect. Keith advised us that we weren't there at the right time for the... More

It's hard to imagine, that I have lived in Nova Scotia for all of my 34 years and this is the first time I have went tidal bore rafting on the Shubie River. Our guide, Angus, was great and would recommend asking for him when you go. It was exhilarating, educational and a barrel of laughs. A must do when... More
