Highly professional rafting company and... More

Angus has the skills to drive our raft explosively through the waves! We were screaming and laughing at the same time. Jumping in to float in the water was super fun. Angus had lots of information about the wildlife and the Bay of Fundy. We will try to get Angus again!

We rafted the river during the biggest tides of month. (Be sure to check the page on their website that tells you not only when the tide comes in, but rates the relative size of the rapids expected.) We've done a lot of rafting and were a little disappointed to see the outboard motors. We thought, "Oh, we are going... More

Connor was awesome - he was playful, funny, "charismatic" according to one of our group mates, knowledgable, patient, and made us all feel welcome. Even helped relax the youngster who was scared. Well done!!!!!

The tidal bore creates a unique opportunity daily for thrill seekers where small groups go out on Zodiac excursions and ride the waves caused by the tide rushing onto the sandbar of the shubenacadie river. My family went in late July and had a blast. you get soaked and even have a chance to swim in the bore. The water... More

woooo-hooo!! what a ride. if you are thinking of riding the bore in the bay of fundy, you should go with shubenacadie river runners. the main reason is the safety of the company. this is the only company that sends out a chase boat in case one of the boats has a problem or some of the people have a...

We had pre-booked our rafting and they were able to answer all of our questions. We took our 2 boys ages 10 and 12 on the boats and they both loved it. Our youngest laughed the entire ride. We were happy that we had brought a change of dry clothes because we were totally wet despite wearing the rain gear.... More

My wife, 11 year old grandson and I did the 2 hour trip and it was amazing. Our guide and zodiac driver, Cody was terrific and helpful. The experience of seeing the tidal bore come in and then walk on a sandbar that an hour later was 18 feet underwater was thrilling. This was like being on a roller coaster... More
