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.

We had the best rafting experience ever! Our family and 3 other family friends, went camping at Kimberley Riverside Campground and decided to try the water rafting down at the St. Mary's River. The company doesn't normally do the St. Mary's Express on a Saturday afternoon, but they went out of their way to accommodate us and arranged for a... More

We had a great time on this rafting trip! The crew was energetic, engaging, friendly, and incredibly professional. The scenery is amazing and being in the kayak was a blast! Would recommend that everybody do this when they're in Kimberley!

We chose the Kimberley Raft company over the other companies where we were staying in Fernie because they offered a bit of a shorter trip with the St. Mary's Express. I don't regret this decision one bit. Our tour guides, Benjamin and Zoe and driver Daniel (I think....sorry) were so friendly and made you feel comfortable right from the start.... More

We had such fun on this rafting trip down the St. Mary. From now on a rafting trip will become something we always do when we visit Kimberley. I can't believe we waited so long to try it! Benjamin was our guide, he was fun and very experienced, it was obvious he knew every little thing about the river. I've... More

Went white water kayaking on July 11th, which I believe was the first kayaking tour of the summer. It was absolutely awesome. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and the pace was perfect (plenty of breaks between the grueling rapids); it was just a wonderful tour altogether. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.
