I was weary about this rafting trip. Not because I was afraid, but because I thought the lower level rapids we planned (we have two children age 9 & 11) would be super lame. Boy was I mistaken. I had never been white water rafting before, but I was a competitive swimmer and a beach lifeguard for a number of... More

Super organized and fun staff really made this experience special. Wet suits, boots, fleece, helmets, lifejackets, and a splash guard are provided. They give clear instructions and make sure you're fit for a safe trip down the river! We did horseshoe canyon which had 3 rapids and a stop for cliff jumping. Our guide was Chris S. and he did...

We did the Horseshoe Canyon run, it was a blast! The cliff jumping was my favourite part! There was also the surfing with the raft! Our guide Chris was a lot of fun! Highly recommend Chinook Rafting, We will be booking with them again!

We did the rafting at Kananaskis river last week, was a great experience , especially for the kids, as it is only level 2-3. The whole event was organized professionally, down to when to smile to the camera :). Also the photos taken by the staffs were professionally done, all the specific location n timing. And the photos were free!... More

Very well organised. Staff very professional and kept us fully informed of any changes at all times. Explained everything we needed to know and answered all of our questions. All equipment provided so wanted for nothing. The experience left us wanting more and can't wait to do a grade four rapid! Also top notch banter with our guide, Marshall!

This was a great first experience! We did the Horseshoe Canyon rafting trip and it was the perfect level. We were picked up in Canmore, where we were staying, which was very helpful. Richard was an amazing guide, very knowledgeable, funny and he ensured a fun ride for everyone. We had lots of fun and would definitely go again! A... More

We did the Horseshoe Canyon (Class 3 due to low water levels) rafting trip. Adam was a great guide, providing relevant information without being obnoxiously talkative. It was still easy to enjoy the scenery and overall experience. Would recommend!

Richard was our guide and he was very patient and quite funny. He's very knowledgeable and makes you feel safe. This was my second time going and I will most likely go again. So much fun!!
