Since we've been married, my wife has wanted to do this, but it really isn't my cup of tea. When she read in the brochure that Chinook had an option that went down to five years old, and we had a day off, we decided to give it a try. The Kananaskis River is the run for the families. We... More

We have never been rafting and we did the Kananassis route as my wife is a non swimmer. We had a blast but I bet the Horseshoe option is even better and my wife would be doing that one next time. Very exciting and Chinook tours guides were very friendly and experienced. A lot of fun - don't miss out.

4 out of 5 of my family members had never white-water rafted before and were a little more than nervous. But everyone had such an awesome time, that they're all excited to go white-water rafting again. We booked an all-afternoon tour, at a beginner's level and it was perfect. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable and had impeccable timing for... More

I just want to share with the world how amazing our water rafting excursion turned out to be. Our guide "Mueller" was phenomenal. The rafting was the best rafting tour I've taken with my family to date. We had such a good time and the guide made it so fun and exciting for us all. Mueller is definitely the guide... More

These guys are very professional and at the same time fun to be with. Thoroughly enjoyed our morning in the horseshoe canyon, the cliff jump was a great extra option. My twenty y/o son was with me and it was good to find something we could enjoy together.

I went rafting with Chinook for my friend's stagette. There were 15 of us and the folks who worked there made sure we all had a great time. They were professional, yet personable and fun. Our group had many different types of gals and Chris (our guide) made sure we all had a blast! We did the Horseshoe Canyon and... More

Rafting with the chinook guides was an awesome experience! I had never rated before and was slightly scared, but the gear they give you and the guides are very helpful and experienced. I had Conor as a guide and he made the trip worth it. He kept the whole raft entertained even during the slower parts of the river. I'd... More

The whole experience was absolutely amazing from the crashing water to the beautiful views. Cliff jumping was great and would recommend everyone try it. Our guide was Chris and he was fantastic and a lot of fun. Definitely coming back as soon as we can!!!!!

We really enjoyed our rafting experience. The operation is very slick. Check in time was minimal, short bus ride to the rafts and above all great guides. Full of energy, great knowledge and keen to make sure everyone had a good time. My kids 7 and 10 loved it. Enough rapids to get them excited but not too much to... More
