      Rafting on clearwater river
      Had the most amazing experience during our raft on the clear water river. Our guide was very experienced and gave us a very safe feeling. Besides that, he knew a lot about the region and the surrounding environment. Definitely worth the money

      Amazing day on the river!
      What an amazing adventure for our family! Thanks to the staff at the awesome Riverside Adventures for a super-memorable day! Harry and Dylan were great guides and shared not only their fantastic river rafting skills but also great knowledge and history of the area. The hike to the waterfalls was an extra treat and made for a really full adventure. Great vibe all round and big shout out to the availability of an outdoor shower that was super appreciated given we were camping at the time. We will definitely be back!

      Amazing!!
      Amazing experience and amazing guides for our white water rafting trip! I’m a bit of a chicken but I felt safe with my guide. It was a thrill but not to the point of fear! 10/10 recommend and wish we could go over and over again! Thanks Joe and Dylan for being the best guides I’ve had! And thanks Sam for getting us there safely. Hope to keep in touch if we come to BC for rafting next year!

      Exciting
      Welcoming fun group, I have gone three times, twice rafting on the Clearwater and now once in an inflatable kayak on the Thompson. Everything about this trip is fun. A great company.

      Cool trip
      We were riverrafting on the North Thompsen River with Dillon as guide and Sam as bus driver. The new wetsuit und wetjacket they gave us protected very well againt the cold water. It was an exciting experience on the water paddling through the waves and rapids and Dillon told us a lot about riverrafting and the local history. Both Dillon and Sam are funny guys and very helpful.

    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!!

    We did the 3 hour rafting trip in late August 2020, with a party of 2 adults and 3 kids and had a fantastic time. Comparably, we have been on a similar rafting trip on the Snake River, Jackson, Wy, where we would describe the rapids as slightly more exciting (could be due to the earlier summer timing), however, this trip was fabulous in that there were plenty of waves smashing over the raft and especially soaking the youngest member of our family (who was riding up front), as well as the side trips to the waterfall and to cliff jump. Together, the rafting and the thrill of cliff jumping and the waterfall swim make this a trip we would highly recommend. Most importantly, Jamie (guide) and Matt (safety guide), were fun, knowledgeable, and safety was clearly a priority.

    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.

    For my first time being on a raft and in class IV waters, this was an amazing experience! Best in Clearwater. The owner Sam was very professional and personal, and I made everyone feel safe while still having a good time! The rest of the staff are super knowledgeable and just want you to have a good time. I really felt like I was able to get the full Wells Gray experience! Hopefully I'll be back soon!

    The whole experience was amazing! That’s the best word for it! I took my three kids, aged 5, 10, and 16 and they had an absolute blast! I couldn’t stop laughing and smiling and it trickled down to each of my kids. Our guide was Joe and he is very well educated on the local history and geological spots along the River. My kids trusted him right away and he made them feel safe and the positive attitude was definitely contagious. Thanks to Sam for the great photos and enjoyable experience from booking to rescheduling to being the last person that saw us off. The other guides deserve a mention too, Gilian and Dylan were awesome and treated us just like our own guide. Super helpful and all around great people! We plan on booking again before the summer is over! Highly recommend!

    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.

    This trip highlighted the amazing beauty of the Clearwater River and its surrounding. I have rafted many times before and found this company to do an incredible job of guiding and providing smiles!!

    Our guides Dylan and Joe were incredible! They shared their extensive knowledge of the river and its surroundings. The trip to the waterfall was spectacular! Walking behind and swimming underneath it were exhilarating! I brought two 15 year old boys with me, at the start of the day I told them this was going to be the highlight of their summer - they did not believe me. Dylan kept these young men engaged, they swam, did the rodeo ride on the front of the boat and went head on into the waves bringing many smiles. At the end of the day the boys told me this exceeded their expectations and asked if we could do it again next summer.

    The equipment was very nice. the boats appeared new and in great condition. It was VERY nice that we received cleaned and dry suits to put on for our afternoon adventure. They had shoes for those that needed them. They have a system after each tour to clean and dry the gear. I was impressed!

    Staff is knowledgeable, kind and provided a feeling of safety. We had a diabetic in our group and Dylan was extremely mindful to have our kit with him at all times and secured into the boat incase it was needed.

    Thank you Dylan for making this the best adventure that the boys had this summer and putting smiles on our faces!! Our boat members were fantastic! We will be back to Riverside again!!

    Fantastic paddling experience along the (aptly named) Clearwater River. Warmly welcomed by Sam (owner), Major (canine host). Joe (guide), and Jamie (safety kayak). Great people who build an easy rapport with clients, but are equally attentive to ensuring safety. Trip included osprey and eagle sightings, whitewater swimming, and a cliff jump. Kids (14) and (12) rated this their favourite experience of a 10 day road trip (including the Rockies).

    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!
