Had a brilliant Snorkelling with Salmon Trip on the 17th August. Jamie was brilliant with our 2 five year olds, who thoroughly enjoyed themselves jumping into the river and watching the Salmon. Would recommend to anyone visiting the area.

Fantastic tour with great guides. It's most definitely worth it. You see a abundance of salmon and other wildlife. Luckily we saw some seals at the end which was the cherry on the icing. The wetsuits provide sufficient protection from the cold water.

Wow what an experience that was. We were not sure what our trip would entail but wow it surpassed our expectations. Jamie was superb and so informative and clearly passionate about his job and the river. We spent a few hours floating downstream on our tummies amongst the trout and salmon and it was truly amazing.

We booked this adventure for our family of four largely based on the amazing reviews and have to agree that it is one of the adventures we most enjoyed on trip to BC in July. Our family was impressed by Jamie's friendliness, interest and attention to us and professionalism. His knowledge of the river is impressive, to say the least!... More

Our family of five had a really nice afternoon outing with DRA. The weather was great, the scenery was beautiful, and the service was first rate. It was really cool to see the river "from the inside." The only problem was: no salmon. Apparently there were some "in the system," but of the 7 rafters in our boat, only one... More

Such and unexpected adventure. Jamie, our guide and owner, certainly knows his stuff. The ease he guided us down the Campbell River was impressive! He knows all the areas that the salmon lay and his knowledge of the river and area are astounding. What a great way to spend the day. I highly recommend Destiny River Adventures to anyone!

Perhaps one of most memorable events of a lifetime... After jumping into the frigid river (however in a wet suit supplied by the company) we spent 2 hours floating down the river through many small Rapids watching hundreds of thousands of salmon. The salmon literally were a fingertip away. Absolutely amazing!! Suitable for all ages (including seniors). Hope to make... More

GREAT adventure! Snorkeling with the salmon was quite the experience. You will have the opportunity to float downstream with thousands of salmon swimming around you. Equipment is new and in good condition. Care of taken to see that all levels of expectation are satisfied. The water can be quite chillly even with the wetsuit, but worth the effort. Very safe....

If you are in Campbell river and don't go on a salmon snorkel then you have missed out. We saw I bet over 20,000 fish today in their natural environment. What a blast! Friendly staff, good equipment. This is a bucket list trip. Like swimming in a giant aquarium.
