Our family of four went on the Horseshoe Canyon trip today. Everything about this trip was great. Upon arrival, we were given instructions, rafting gear and safety information, and every guide/employee that we encountered was knowledgeable and friendly. We felt like Chinook Rafting had safety as it's number one priority, and making sure everyone had an amazingly fun experience was... More

Fantastic afternoon of whitewater rafting through class 2 & 3 Rapids on the Kananaskis River outside Canmore with our 2 daughters, 10 & 12. The girls were a bit apprehensive beforehand but after the first few Rapids we're loving it and wanting more. Well set up, well managed and safe for kids. Our guide Chris was good fun, had great...

We took six visiting tweens-to-teens on a morning white water rafting trip, and everyone loved it, from the timid to the fool hardy 18-year-old males. Very competent, friendly and funny guides, a brisk training session on land and in the rafts. Being a native Calgarian, I was a little apprenhensive about the 4 C water (brrrr!), but the wet suits,... More

Had a great time rafting with these guys! Richard was our guide and he did an excellent job keeping us afloat and talking about the area as we made it down the river. Definitely do the cliff jumps!

7 of us went rafting this past weekend and it was great fun! The weather was beautiful and sunny so it was so refreshing to get splashed and go swimming in the river. Our guide Conor was excellent and very knowledgable! It was a perfect afternoon; I'd love to go again this summer!

Visiting in beautiful cool Canmore Canada from Texas. Saw many pretty and clear rivers looked like time for me at 77 to do a rafting trip, wife been before in Colorado. Drove to pm meeting point only 30 minutes from here. Got wet gear and on bus to K river. There received a thorough safety briefing. Our guide was Conor... More

Had a wonderful afternoon in Kanadaskis with our friends and our excellent guide James. Lots of fun and very wet - especially those who ended up in the river! We were very well looked after by all of the friendly and enthusiastic team. Well worth booking again.

Had a blast whitewater rafting the Horseshoe Canyon on the Bow River with friends. The guides were very knowledgeable and made the experience awesome!! Was my first time ever cliff jumping, would recommend to everyone to try that as well. :-)

Just amazing. Everyone on staff was great, from the girl (Sorry, didn't catch her name) who greeted us at our car to the bus driver to our guide (Richard!). Meeting site was clean and well organized. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and funny as hell. Great rapids and we really enjoyed cliff jumping (although my photo would say otherwise). Wish... More
