I always heard about the good rafting quality in Wells Grey area and the Clearwater River.So since I have to leave my pipeline job to my new job for for Parks Canada in Alberta,I wanted to organize a rafting trip with my great coworkers before Ieaving.
I did call Sam the owner and he did a great job of taking a group of 14 at a great price.
His knowledge about the rafting industry was nothing but excelent and his guides were extremely professional taking care 100%per cent about our safety in the rivwr.Joe our raft guide was friendly,funny and very well trained for the job.
All my coworkers had a blast with the experience and that is what I wanted for them before my departure.
Thank You Sam and Team for making it happen .Definetely I would rwcommend Riverside Adventures to anybody.
Cheers!!

💦 What an experience . I called Riverside Adventures from Jasper as we were passing through the next day to check if they had availability. Not only did Sam move staff training around to accommodate us, the experience of rafting down the North Thompson river was brilliant. Water levels are high at the moment for Clearwater river so we drove 30mins and Sam made the experience so fun and so utterly memorable. We had our 7 and 4 year olds with us and he gave us the chance to experience something so fun together. He knew exactly what to do to keep the kids engaged the whole time and was prepared with all the gear and equipment we could have wished for. This is a very special business that focuses on giving guests the most fun experience and I can’t recommend this place enough. Thank you Sam and Gillian. Can’t believe you’ve already sent through the photos within 2 hours of our experience. 🤩👏👏👏

It was the second day for the guides to get back on the Clearwater River after the high water level and it was still really challenging en therefore a lot of fun!
The first part was definately the best and not for kids under the age of 17 (which I agree with completely). We had the best time though!
Our guide Gillian was very skilled and could not only guide us in the boat, but could also tell a lot more about nature and wildlife in the area.
We've had an awesome time, thanks a lot!

We had our two families on one raft with Joe and had incredible experience. First time rafting for all the kids aged 9-14 and everyone wavered between exhilarating fear and sheer joy. Joe was knowledgeable talking about rock formations, native species, but also a big kid when he'd point put a fish in the water only to splash you with the paddle. Lots of fun "surfing" the rapids, swimming, cliff jumping!!!! thanks for an unforgettable experience!!

My group had the most amazing day thanks to the team at Riverside Adventures. The experience included beautiful scenery, exhilarating adventure and good laughs. I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking an active team building/ bonding experience.

The guides (Dylan and Joe) especially stood out. They were knowledgeable on rafting, safety, the area, natural features and animal sightings.

Thrilling experience in Wells Gray! We are a family of 3 with an 8-year old daughter, and we had a blast the entire excursion. Our daughter had to skip the first two rapids since they were class 4 and not allowed for children under 16 and I decided to stay with her not being that adventurous, but we so enjoyed the rest of the rapids. I felt very confident about our safety so I was able to put aside my initial fears and fully enjoy the adventure. Also did a very nice hike to a lovely waterfall. We were in the raft with Sam and he did entertain us with information about the environment and humour- as did the rest of the crew. If you're in the area, you should not hesitate to book a rafting adventure with them!

Was an amazing time whitewater rafting down the North Thompson River and our guides made it that way! My wife and I were rafting for the very first time and during the ride she fell into the river unexpectedly and was quickly swept far from the raft but our guide Joe maneuvered us right to her even over some fairly heavy rapids. This turned a difficult situation into a minor footnote because we had her back in the raft in less than a minute. The safety training was effective with some funny jokes sprinkled in, all in all a very good experience.

What a wonderful experience!!!! With two younger children on board as well as two seniors - oops am I really that old!!! - we all felt safe and had a great time. Our guide, Harry, was extremely knowledgeable regarding rafting as well as Sam, owner/operator, who knew local vegetation and provided interesting insights. A professionally guided trip through larger rapids preceded picking up those 16 and younger who had to miss that part of the trip. More fun await through additional rapids as well as a quick plunge into the water for anyone who wanted the experience of hanging off the side of the raft. A morning well spent!

Rafting along the Clearwater River it is something that you don’t wanna miss if you visit and stay in Clearwater. Booking my rafting adventure with Riverside rafting was a good choice, the stuff is very knowledgeable, our boat guide was Joe aka Steve, a very funny and experienced guy. This was my first time rafting in my whole life, (i am 53) and i can say it was a great experience, beautiful landscape, challenging rapids, cliff jumping, swimming free along the boat in a calm water etc and I will definitely recommend it to my friends. They even take beautiful pictures of us during rafting and they will email them to you free of charge, (as Joe told me) though I am still waiting for my pictures.
