First time on the rapids for us, and we had a blast! Before we started the safety briefing made us wonder what we were letting ourselves in for, but it was all good and prepared us fully for the ride. Our guide Benjamin was so experienced and extremely knowledgeable and so aware of the currents that we always felt safe!... More

Had a perfect day weather wise and our trip was terrific. Guides Adam and Alonso were both entertaining and knowledgeable. Took us to a spot where we could jump off some rocks into a deep pool. Also got to body surf the rapids in one location. That was a blast! Recommend if you are in the area and want something... More

We had a fabulous run on the St. Mary's River last weekend (June 20th) with the guides! I highly recommend Kimberley Raft Co for your first or your next rafting experience! We took a group of 7 Teen-age girls - 16th Birthday party and everyone had such a blast. Great for the whole family to experience - at any age.... More

We had a very fun adventure with our 1/2 day river rafting excursion. The guides were knowledgeable and funny. We laughed and learned a few good lessons on how to river raft safely. We even were given the opportunity to "shoot" the rapids without the rafts (only with our PFD's!) I would like highly recommend this rafting experience and would... More

No half day renting for SUP. We have paid 55$ fro a entire day but use it only 5 hours. But we like it. It was a good inflatable board. The staff at the shop was nice.

We went there for a family reunion activity. The youngest was 8, the oldest 73, some teenagers and middleagers......and all had an amazing time. The guides were very friendly and were knowledgeable. They managed to keep safety in mind while allowing us to enjoy every moment of our adventure. The scenery is super! Have never done an activity with 15... More

My husband and I had a fantastic time with my sister & her husband, rafting the St. Mary's River with Kimberley Raft Company. We left Kimberley and were taken in a bus to the drop off point, about a 30 minute drive from town. Our safety briefing was anything but brief - our guide thoroughly explained everything we needed to... More

We loved our guide and the 1/2 day trip was perfect for our group. I wish that Kootenay Raft Co. Had half day trips on the Elk River at the end of August as St. Mary's was very low water and we got stuck on the rocks a couple of times. Would do again only maybe different time of year.
