Even though the day was cold and rainy it was SO AMAZING. We were given food and told rafting basics before getting started, had lots of time to get prepared, then were driven out to the location where we got on our rafts and practiced some really basic paddling and were told what to do if we fell out or...

My family has gone up to Canada for years and Owls Rafting was always one of the things that were on the to do list. This past August was very special for us . We lost our father due to Cancer on August 16th 2013 so we went up this year in honor of his memory (August 8th-16th )since this... More

We took a two-day adventure package - first trip in a big 12-person raft, second in a smaller one, and greatly enjoyed both. Bigger raft is safer and less likely to flip, and probably less paddling is needed, however I would recommend going in a smaller, 7-person boat. It's much more fun, and you really feel the river.

We went on August 21, 2014. The staff was extremely enthusiastic. This was exactly what we needed, because the weather was awful: pouring rain all day. The cheerfulness of the staff lifted everyone's spirits considerably. I must note that it was a terrifying experience at parts, but I'm glad that I went. I never felt that I was in danger,... More

We arrived at Owl Rafting after driving for 7 hours on the Saturday of the Labour Day weekend. We checked in quickly and got to our cabin. Labour Day is close to the ideal time to go – air temps and water temps are both warm. I’m a pool wimp – takes me forever to get in to a pool.... More

We were visiting relatives in Petawawa and wanted to go white water rafting for the first time, and heard alot about Owl. This place was amazing, with everything right down to the clean nice smelling washroom/change rooms. They were right to the point with everything you need to know about safety which was great for our first time. The organization... More

I booked the family rafting trip for myself, wife and daughter. Everything from booking, to directions and check in went very smoothly. We received a comprehensive safety briefing before setting off for the rafts. Before each section of the rapids we were told by our guide what to expect and if we wanted to stay on the raft or walk... More
