“Excellent trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Had an amazing time with the chinook rafting team on the kananaskis river. We had AJ as our raft leader and he honestly made it for all of us. In our raft we had two children and he made it as exciting for them as he did for the adults. Very professional and a genuine guy. Would recommend it to anybody that was in the area visiting.

“Service with a real smile....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

AJ out guide was outstanding! We had 2 young kids with us and he went above and beyond to ensure they were having fun and safe but didn't take any of the excitement away from the adults. It was such a fun day! All the staff rock! Thanks everyone for an awesome trip!

“Rafting the bow river”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

our guide tyler was a very fun, personable and knowledgeable. they had all the equipment/ clothing we needed and went over safety and training before putting in. We got to go cliff jumping after our first set of rapids which was fun. At the end of the trip we got warm drinks and snacks.

“Fun on Kananaskis River”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

A couple of weeks ago, a friend and I took a rafting trip down the Kananaskis River (near Canmore, Alberta). Not only is the scenery spectacular, the ride itself was immense fun. There are times that you better be hanging onto the rope (just as the guide tells you) or you'll be in for a swim. The day we went was hot and sunny, but in the pre-trip briefing we were told that the river temperature is only 4 degrees C. I can verify that! Because I got to sit at the front of the raft when we were surfing a large wave, I was thoroughly drenched. Most adults pass up this opportunity. But it was the best part of the trip. So I highly recommend it.

All the staff seemed very efficient, friendly & knowledgeable. Special thanks to our guide, Callan, who seemed to be one of the few locals. Thanks for making the trip so much fun!

“first timer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

had the amazing opportunity to take a guided white water rafting tour on the kananaskis river this past week. Im still on a high from it!
our guide from Chile - Humberto, was one of the best things about the day. he was funny, kind, and extremely knowledgable and personable. I felt completely safe and well prepared, and couldn't have asked for a better experience.
I will definitely be booking more tours in the future.
Chinook Rafting staff were so awesome. From my initial booking to handing back my wetsuit after the tour - the whole experience was perfect and well worth every penny!
