“Absolutely awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

Had a fantastic day and would recommend to any thrill seeker. An experience I'll never forget. Even the mud slidding was great fun.

“Wet and Wild!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

This was our third time booking with Shubie River Runners and it just never gets old. Jeff is great and makes sure everyone has a blast. This is not for the faint of heart. We always do the 3-hour option because the last set of waves tends to be the craziest, we enjoy the mud-sliding, and the follow-up barbecue is just what we need at the end of the experience. Note: Take stuff you can either throw away or don't care if it gets really dirty. Take off all jewelry and either solid sport sandals or water-shoes are a must. Take a towel and change of clothes so you can advantage of a post-experience shower. (You'll need it). I would not take a small child on this excursion.

“Great Fun with Knowledgeable Guides”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

We had a great time on this adventure. Our guide, Peter, was not only knowledgeable as far as giving us some background on the amazing Fundy tides, he was fun as well! When the tides began roaring in, our boat was in the thick of things, riding the highest waves. For an adventure that combines a guided tour with a carnival ride au naturel, you can't do better.

“Amazing river and amazing people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2011

We decided to go with this tour becasue of the facilities that they offer. It is a little more expensive but well worth the money. The staff are amazing, we were given bad directions by the hotel we were staying at and we were able to call the tour and let them know that they were running late... they were also able to get us right to thier location. The grounds are amazing, pool is nice and lot of activities (frisbee, washers) to keep yourself occupied before and after the tour. We did the 3 hour tour and the meal after was great ( BBQ dog and burgers but it was a nice way to relax after the trip) Our tour guide Graeme was amazing! He was fun and made sure that all of us were having a great time on the trip, he was also able to spot a bald eagle and point it out to us. Half way through the tour we stopped and went mud slidding (lot of fun dont pass it up) before hitting a new set of waves. I am not from Nova Scotia but I am already planning a trip back and this tour company is on the top of my list!
