The tour started with a pick up in Banff and followed with a two hour bus ride to their location. They played some movies on the television and the bus was nice and warm so It wasn't all too bad. Upon ariving my friend and I were greated by very friendly staff and we went in to register. I was... More

We offer public tours for all ages and experience so sometimes there are periods spent waiting for the slower riders to catch up to the group. For the more experienced rider, we also offer the Back-Country Tour or other options that would give you... More

We did the snowmobiling with Bastian as the tour guide. Unfortunately we kept stopping allllll of the time to wait for the slower people at the back. It felt Iike every 2 minutes we would stop to make sure the slow people had caught up, which was sometimes 5 minutes waiting. Bbq was nice and the tour guide at the... More

Stops along the way are necessary in keeping the groups together, with our guides providing additional safety tips and making sure our... More

We did the morning 1/2 day trip with BBQ lunch. Family with 2 young kids (8 and 10) that weren't old/heavy enough to do the rougher water in the second half of the day. We had a great time, all of us wanted to keep going, but that wasn't to be. Lunch was good, and the Wet 'N wild staff... More

A very bad experience. We booked 5 days in advance. The evening before our trip we received a confirmation mail advising that the trip was going ahead. Our trip was for both the middle and lower canyon. We were advised that the lower canyon may not go ahead depending on numbers and that if that happened they would refund the... More

Totally fantastic. Would really recommend this company and the experience to everyone. We had Zeb steer our boat, the lead guide who was entertaining, knowledgable, very experienced and great fun.

We booked over the phone from UK with no problems; it gets busy in August and this was recommended. We were made to feel welcome when we turned up and were kitted out with wetsuits, boots, splash jackets (definitely worth taking) and life jackets. We were then bused in school buses to the start of the canyon. The canyon is... More

But then all of the crew and guides were so nice and helpful, giving us all the information we needed to fully enjoy our experience. Right after the first... More

Went on the family white water rafting trip. The guide was friendly and great. The rafting trip was a nice taste and we will be back to get more. The lunch beach side was wonderful. Had to change in the bush with a bunch of people but hey was never to modest it was funny actually.
