Positively the best whitewater rafting near Calgary. Friendly staff, great atmosphere, high safety standards. Short season (May-June) but well worth it! Spectacular scenery too as the river is in the Foothills of Kananaskis Country.

As a professional who's researched the customer experience for many years, I have to say I've never encountered a better one! The CRA guides took care of our every need from the time we met them until we returned to our hotel. If you're looking for a unique adventure that's rugged, but you also feel pampered and excited to see... More

Our 10 day Tatshenshini/ Alsek lake trip was a true adventure for us. We experienced so much is those days. From Class 4 Rapids to floating among the icebergs in Alsek . Our guides were very experienced and a joy to spend 10 days with. Some great chef skills also. A recommended trip for sure.

We went rafting with these guys for the first time on June 13, 2015. This was mine and my fiancé's 3rd time rafting, and though the river was a little shallow for us, it was a good time. The company had nice equipment, a great location near Longview, and the guides were fantastic. They were extremely knowledgeable, and very personable.... More

Went here on a team building excursion and had a blast. Everything about the experience was top notch. The guides and staff were all very welcoming and made it a safe and enjoyable experience from end to end. The elk burgers at the end were amazing as well. Great people. Great experience. Do this if you get a chance. You... More

Our school has used this company for many years for the senior high class year end field trip. This year was my last of 4 sons to go. He has Down syndrome.

Once again, we took our senior class on this rafting trip. I am always impressed with the quality, professionalism, and commitment to safety provided. Again, Julie, Dave and crew welcomed us like old friends and accommodated our needs. A warm lunch and bbq dinner topped off a great day on the river for 40 students. Weather was perfect, water was...

This rafting company is by far the BEST in Alberta! This is my 6th rafting trip and I was so impressed by the guides and support crews. Clarkey was a GREAT guide with so much knowledge and love for the area. The rapids were great... even for the rookies on the trip, but exciting for the thrill seekers. Thank you... More

What a great experience! Wasn't too sure what to expect - I was amazed!! Loved the water, the rapids, the air time. I thought I might be feeling cold - not in the least! Everyone was so helpful, friendly, and I want to go back with my family next year!
