We had an absolute blast on the river! The water was fast (and refreshingly cool) and the rapids were actually quite good; not at all what they appear from the road. We were fortunate enough to be in the smaller livelier boats which made it all that much more fun. If you get the chance, ride the bow of the... More

We booked for 8 people--4 adults, 4 children ages 8 to 10. This trip was one of the best things I've done in 10 years in Revelstoke, and was a perfect adventure afternoon for all of us including the children and two seniors. The river in early August was about perfect--lots of rapids, but not so huge nor the river... More

First time we went was last sept water was slow, great first time. This year we went in July water was medium and great fun. Next time we are going beginning... More

Flowing down the Illi, Apex day is crazy silly. Rocket over aquatic speed bumps. Brace upon an upturned wave. Look out for a bear or two, while the guide works you through, some rapids whose water penetrates, your heart and smile unlike a lake. Apex day is really rad, Try it, you’ll be super glad!

Lots and lots of fun! There are not many adventure things that can beat this rafting trip! Professional and skilled guides that did a really good job making it a good water experience for us. Awesome day, big rapids, and back ashore again an unexpected snack was waiting for us. It couldnt be much better. This was an experience I... More

Special thanks to Ralph, Debbie and staff for a spectactular river trip my family will never forget. I will recommend your trip to all my Kiwi mates planning the Vancouver-Banff loop. You haven't "done" Canada until you've rafted with Apex! Really cool t-shirts too!

When I spoke with the staff at Apex, I wanted to find a time in the season that would be safe for my daughter. Debbie suggested that end of August would be the best water level for her. Turned out to be perfect timing because her 9th birthday was 3 days after our trip! The water level was perfect and... More

We have been rafting with Apex once before, loved it so much, we had to do it again. We had kids 9-15 and 2 adults with us. It was a great trip, lots of rapids, a bit of down time where our guide gave us some history and info on the river and area. The ride is awesome, but even... More

By chance we learned that Revelstoke is great for rafting, so we went to the tourist information, which directed us to Apex Rafting. The company is professional and the guides were fun. The river we rafted was the illecillewaet, which is rated as class 3-4. So be prepared to get wet :) We never regretted investing 95 $ per person.... More

Thanks so much Peter for taking the time to give us a review. The water levels have been very exciting this summer and the guides will of course censor their jokes accordingly depending on their crew. Due to economic uncertainties affecting nearly everyone we've kept our rates the same since 2008 and it sounds like you felt our trip was... More

Rafting with Apex gives you a little bit of everything! Huge splashes, quiet serenity and lots of entertainment from the guides, what with waterfighting, funny jokes and info about the area. Revelstoke is beautiful and it's a privilege to get to see some of that beauty from a liquid highway down the Illecillewaet River. The staff are well organized and... More
