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

They show you the equipment, some rules and some tips on how to be safe and enjoy your time rafting. The guides really... More

We enjoyed a 2 day/2 night Family Rafting with OWL and had an AMAZING time! The staff were helpful and friendly, the food was great, and the rafting was phenomenal! Our guide, John, went out of his way to put us at ease and make the trip extra special for the kids (aged 7 to 12). We roasted marshmallows by... More

Owl had the most to offer compared to the other companies. Each and every staff member were helpful and pleasant and also funny plus very organized. The guide we had gave a history lesson which was very informative and not dry at all as he made it interesting. I knew if I fell in I'd be fine. ...I didn't fall... More
