My boyfriend and I booked this trip prior to coming out to Banff for a week's vacation. We had a rental car so we had no trouble finding the meeting spot to grab the bus that takes you to the river. We have both been rafting once before with a company in Ontario (where we are from) so we kind... More

VERY convenient to Banff so if you do the morning run you'll be able to get other activities in during the afternoon. Great guides. Really fun cliff jump! I recommend... More

I just had my first river rafting trip this past week in the afternoon. It was incredible! The weather was poor, but that didn't stop anyone from having an awesome time. This is largely in part due to the knowledgeable and fun guide we had, Marshal. He explained everything well, while making it interesting and memorable. He was in charge... More

My highschool classmates and I had a school trip to the beautiful city of Banff and at the top of our list of activities was obviously white water rafting. Our experience at Chinook Rafting was amazing and extremely thrilling. Our guides *Dave* and Adam were not only extraordinarily hilarious and awesome, they were also very experienced and relaxed which automatically... More

Was a awesome adventure! Our guide James was fun, experienced and knowledgeable. Besides the great white water rafting we had the option of doing a cliff dive! Very thrilling! Would recommend this group to anyone looking for a good time on the "refreshing" river!

The Trip was part of a fantastic Holiday, but one of the memorable ones. The Team at Chinook were Friendly, Knowledgeable and extremely capable, which allowed us with more nervous dispositions relax and enjoy the thrill of the Days event activities. Many, Many thanks to ALL the Team.

We went on the last day of the year and were worried we would be freezing. The weather was beautiful and the wet suits kept us warm. Our tour guide was Muller and he was a lot of fun and very interesting. He kept maneuvering us so we would get the biggest splashes. He also tricked us into rowing backwards... More
