We recently spent the afternoon on an Apex rafting trip of the beautiful Illecillewaet River near Revelstoke, BC. Well worth the price of admission. The entire family enjoyed it. The rapids were fun and exciting and the guides (Danny, Joe and Karina) fantastic. We were really impressed by the quality of this river rafting operation and its people. We will... More

We had an excellent day rafting!! It had rained the day before which meant the water was high and the waves were awesome :) Our guide was super friendly, cheerful, full of stories and local information and passionate about his job. We even got little treats at the end of the day - and don't forget to use the hot... More

The staff were amazing! Our guide who was in the raft with us was very kind, entertaining and fun. We enjoyed our adventure very much. You get bused to and from the river, all the equipment you need and we even received a snack on the bus ride back! My husband and I were first time rafters and had a... More

We loved our experience on the two hour ride down the river. I have to say that we were nervous before getting into the boat - probably due to all the safety briefings, but once on the boat we had a blast - you have to do this once in your life time. As the Canadians say, it was "Awesome"!

My husband and I had a wonderful day on the river with the Apex crew. Everything was well organised from the wetsuits to the bus to the snack after the rafting. We really enjoyed it and found it quite challenging. We went in late June on a lovely sunny day but boy that water was cold! Joe was very professional... More

Ten members of the Rocky Mountain Concert Band, visiting from Calgary, took this trip on June 29. The water was perfect - great rapids. Can't say enough about Apex. From the woman in the office, to the guides, bus driver and photographer, they are a professional outfit. Wetsuits etc. were clean - laundered each time. Safety procedures were clearly outlined...

It was so much fun. I am so glad I did it. Excellent. Would love to do it again. The instructor was great and made my Daughter feel safe, when she was scared. The rapids where really good. Very professional and value for money .

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
