August 29, 2015: Went with my 20 & 16 year old Daughters, one day adventure. Was the most amazing experience ever. The most obvious to us, was the knowledge/experience, skill, and professionalism, of these Guides. You see the other companies with their guides and there is NO comparison. You feel very safe and confident with these Guides. Big shout out... More

Thank you to all the staff at OWL for a wonderful day of rafting. Standing "O" to Naomi for guiding us down the river. I am a non-swimmer who was very nervous at the start of this trip; but after the first rapid when I saw how confidently Naomi was guiding us, I began to feel at ease and had... More

I was part of a wedding group (the only girl) that went to Ottawa for the OWL Whitewater rafting. We stayed in a cabin the night before rafting and had a fire in the common area. In the morning we had a briefing before we set off on our adventure. The guides were amazing to tell you exactly what to... More

Loved it!! It was a great experience I can't wait to do again. The staff were funny, warm and welcoming. Our guide (Lars) was constantly checking to make sure we were okay, helping us feel comfortable and at ease. We had a great time and look forward to rafting again with Owl.

First time I have ever tried this and although I won't go back I do recommend as it was fun. Just know what your up against. Went in the 12 person raft as I did want some excitement but didn't really want to be in the water. What I have learned is that the guide make the trip....the rest of... More

It was a blast and I would definitely try it again . For the more confident , you have the opportunity to body surf down part of the river with... More

I had a group of 37 Rafters, some novice some repeats at OWL, and some completely terrified of water. Check in was a little confusing however that was due to some lack of communication between myself and the guests, the staff in the office helped me straighten everything out to the best possible outcome. I will know better for next... More

From the time we booked in, to the time we left, the whole experience was professional and just so much fun. It was the first time I had been on a school bus and both myself, my cousin and my son where all excited about the day ahead. The skipper of the boat Rob was clear in his safety briefings... More
