After 5 days of walks, biking and hikes in the rain, my brother treated our family to a white water rafting adventure. This outdoor outfit was well organized. High safety standards. Thank you Marshall (guide) for this 'most excellent adventure'. Marshall made it so much fun. We were a diverse group of young children, teenagers and middle-agers. The scenery was... More

This was my first time rafting and I was very nervous...so I couldn't be more thankful to Chinook for all the effort they put into making you feel safe and comfortable! We had such a blast; we really loved every aspect of it. Not only is the rafting and cliff jumping exciting, but the views are incredible! It really does... More

This was my second time of rafting within the area. I chose the Horseshoe Canyon with Class 3-4 rapids. It was great fun with beautiful scenery. The guide was funny and knowledgeable. What caught me by surprise was the 3 meters and 10 meters cliff jumping where you can decide to participate or not. That added to the fun!

I've been rafting several places before and this unfortunately did not compare. I was told there were level 3 and 4 rapids, but there was only three small rapids total. It was definitely not the exhilarating adventure I was looking for. However for a first timer it would be a good place to start. The cliff diving was the highlight... More

sooooo much fun - amazing meet spot - extremely knowledgeable and funny staff - loved the cliff jumping. only warning: prepare to help carry the raft up an embankment after you are done rafting - don't worry - they give you breaks lol
