At the end of August, our 6-person family unit (mom,dad, 3 kids + a German exchange student) drove from our tent campsite at Tunnel Mountain in Banff to give rafting our first try. The car trip took about 90 minutes to get to Golden. Brad (the owner) was super friendly when checking us in for our 3-hour rafting trip. The... More

We booked a full day rafting and accommodation (bed and breakfast) with this company as they had a great package deal. The guy was very helpful when we booked, answered my silly questions, assured me they were very experienced, etc. We were really looking forward to going, however, our travel plans changed and we could not go. I provided a... More

This rafting company were the on lybones we found that would take on 5 year olds and above on the rafting trip and what an amazing trip it was! The rapids were gentle enough but yet exciting for our 6 year old whom we would describe as "phobic everything" and at the end of it she was disappointed it ended... More

My wife, 8 year old daughter and I completed a 3 hour rafting trip down the Kicking Horse River yesterday. We've done quite a bit of traveling and have participated in many adventurous activities over the years, but I cannot think of a single experience that our family enjoyed more than yesterday's trip with Wet N Wild. Our river guide... More

Four of us from one family went, aged between 23 and 34. We did The Ultimate package, which included a good introductory section in the middle canyon and an exhilarating ride in the lower canyon. Two of us had never gone rafting before (and I could personally barely even swim), but we were able to quickly learn under the experienced... More

We had the best day trip rafting the first two sections of the Kicking Horse River with Wet n Wild. This operation has been going for many years and you can tell by their smooth operation on the day and the brilliant staff. Our guide Tyler was very informative and we had a great time with our fellow rafters throughout... More

We had a great time rafting. We did the "Family White Water Rafting " trip, which was quite fun. The beginning of the trip is quite placid - perhaps more than we would have preferred- but it was as described. We would definitely go back.

Took the all day, 6 hour trip with the best guide ever - Tyler. He was extremely knowledgeable and made the the whole day fun, exciting and educational. Seriously couldn't have asked for a better experience. From the staff to the fellow rafters, it was our best rafting experience we've ever had. The river was awesome... Highly recommend this first-class... More
