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

This was my first experience with river rafting and I absolutely loved it! Before starting the trip, I was a little bit scared to do the lower canyon part as well. 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.

The level 4 rapids of the kicking horse were awesome compared to the other times I've rafted elsewhere. One BiG MUST...only book a party of 4, 6 or 8 to make it enjoyable. We were two sporty girls in our thirties and the employees paired us with a family of 4 (the parents and two teenage girls). This was their... More

Thank you for writing in. When booking in for any publicly offered activity, you are grouped with others to fill your raft. If this is a problem for you, the solution to this would of course be to bring along a group of friends you are familiar with. Although we are not certain what particular trip you were on that...

Thank you! I went with my family on 8th August 2014 and it was one of the best day of my trip in Canada. Pablo was our "guide", he is really friendly and funny!
