This is the first time that we have tried white water rafting - we signed up for a regular session. Total time was about 4 hours from start to finish. The staff was great, very friendly and skilled. We were concerned about the weather as it was forecasted to be cold and raining and only 10 degrees celsius. Nevertheless, we... More

Get driven to their lock up in a school bus where you get given wetsuit, boosters, waterproof, helmet and life jacket. Not made clear to us but you do get given a wetsuit so only wear swimwear underneath. Your clothes and other belongings get left in their lock up and then they drive you to the river. Our raft had...

Took the easy trip down the Bow River and had a fabulous time. Very safe for the older folks in the group. Although I would have preferred the white water trip I knew what I was booking and it did not disappoint. This is a leisurely river float with opportunities to see some wildlife up close and personal. Our float... More

We booked the afternoon trip for the family (2 adults and 3 children aged 12,10 and 8) on the Kananaskis river. The whole family loved the trip in glorious sunshine with the grade of river and length of tour being perfect for the children's first rafting adventure. My tip would be ensure each child can participate and has their own... More

This was our first time whitewater rafting, and we wanted something fun but not scary for our kids, ages 10 and 7. When I called to book, the staff person was extremely helpful, and I felt confident that rafting the Kananaskis was the best choice for us. The company was very professional and efficient, from signing in to getting us... More

I had my choice of 2 trips a short family cat 2 or a longer cat 3/4. I booked the longer one. We were told when we arrived that the water was lower right now. The problems with this tour: I'll be generous and say we were 1hr on the water. Totally misinformed. No wow factor. The instructor made a... More

Hi wasntme58, We're very sorry about your disappointment in the rafting trip. When you went rafting with us the water levels had dropped significantly (disappointing for us too!) on the Bow River (usually a class 4) so it would seem more like a class 3. Unfortunately this is out of our control. Both trip durations are half day tours running... More

The rafts were ready , my nerves a little unsteady,but after a thorough safety talk and the expert maneuvering of our raft guide , the rafting of the very first rapid went smoothly .... More

This trip down the Kanananskis River is a class 2 and really only for beginners or families. We have previously been rafting the kicking horse and many more aggressive overseas locations. No complaints about the rafting trip, guides were knowledgeable and safety minded and we were aware it was a class 2/3. Scenery was nice. The problem was that we... More

We booked the above rafting excursion and I have to say it was one of the worst rafting experiences we have had. We've rafted in New Zealand, Colorado and on the Red Deer River and I have never taken a more poorly conceived trip. The mosquitos were horrible and the company did nothing to provide repellent. Our raft guide chose... More

Hi Nikki V, Terribly sorry about your experience. If you're saying that you didn't get a chance to do the cliff jumping because your guide didn't allow it, then we're happy to provide you a complimentary trip on your next return to the Canadian Rockies. The mosquitos can be super annoying. Unfortunately it's up to the individual to bring repellant,... More
