We had a great time rafting with Apex on the Illicillewat River. We return every summer with our kids (aged 12 to 18) and it is a great trip every year! We prefer rafting earlier in the summer when the rapids are bigger, but even the end of summer float is fun. The guides are all fantastic, knowledgeable and funny.... More

We had a brilliant afternoon. The weather was really hot and sunny so it made even better going down the awesome rapids and ice cool/light blue waters of the Illecillewaet (or "Illy Silly Wallet" as I call it!). The two guides were very good at explaining all the safety aspects on the shuttle bus beforehand. This was our first time... More

I had an amazing time on a rafting trip with Apex a week ago. I'm travelling across Canada, and this definitely made it on the list of good adventures. Super safe, the office staff was friendly, our guides Joe and Rob were incredibly nice, very entertaining and had tons of stories to share throughout the tour. It's a few hours... More

We had a great afternoon of rafting on a hot day, including jumping into the river and floating along with the raft. Apex provides all the gear that you need. The guides were both great, and they were patient with a group of clients that wasn't terribly organized. They also provided all the instructions in German to a family that... More

Wow! I had such an amazing day riding the rapids down the Illecillewaet River with Apex Raft Company. My favourite part was jumping in and floating down the river. Make sure you're armed with jokes to share along the way, it certainly makes for a collective experience. I would definitely recommend stopping in Revelstoke, British Columbia to experience this adventure.... More

Went on a raft trip with Apex last week and can say it was such an exciting time! The staff was friendly, fun, professional and safe. Our guide Joe kept us laughing the whole ride, as well as taught us a lot about the mountains and environmental along the river. And this was all in addition to the absolutely thrilling... More

Apex gives guests an amazing experience from the awesome guides who really know their stuff (including knowledge on all the surrounding peaks, etc.) to the cold, refreshing water, the fun groups that you paddle with, and the killer rapids. It was a great time and we also got some super good pics shot by an Apex guide, for a really... More

We went on the river trip with our 12 year old kids - everyone had a terrific time. Definitely opt for fleece with the wet suit, you will get wet and it's very cold. Don't underestimate the river, I'm an experienced paddler and still wound up being bounced out for a swim. Eat well beforehand because it's a longish trip... More

My husband & I drove from Kelowna which was 2 1/2 hours, so did the 1pm tour. It was a great afternoon (33C). The bus ride to the start of the rafting was very hot. We were in our wet suits & the bus had no AC. It was a very exciting 2 hours down the river with lots of... More

Booked the Whitewater rafting trip the day before and we were accommodated effortlessly for our party of 3. Our guide Joe was excellent, knowledgeable and fun! He made sure everyone(there was a total of 7 guests on the raft) had a great time and entertained us with his catalogue of jokes. Always felt safe in the raft. The scenery and... More
