A wonderful time! was quite worried about the weather during august as there was a forecast of rain however the sunshine and tour guides pulled through. The rafting itself was fun- might go up the next level for a bit more of an adventure but definitely family friendly. The photos were such a nice touch- high quality and easily available, perfect way to capture everything. Pas our tour guide was wonderful, she kept conversation going, engaged in some water fights with us and really taught us everything we needed to enjoy our ride. The whole thing was well organised, would have preferred better place to change/ more available places once back to the river base. The snacks and refreshments that are included were only a few things although it sounds like there would be more- still good nonetheless. Would definitely go again!

Awesome Family Whitewater Rafting Experience!
Jun 2021
Our family of 5 aged between 8 and 80 had an awesome time white water rafting on the Kananaskis river. This was a first time experience for my MIL who is legally blind. Our guide Richard took very good care of her as she sat right next to him at the back of the raft.

Richard would point out points of interest along the river and redo some of the rapids for some extra fun. We all felt very safe and can't wait to go back again! Thanks Richard for an awesome time and taking such good care of us all! My MIL is still talking about her adventure and hasn't stopped telling all her friends and families about her great adventure!

Face masks were only required on the bus ride to and from the launch point.

Gabriel is my favourite guide among our 5-day Banff/jasper trip! We went on biking, hot spring, horse back riding and ice walking on glaciers and this rafting experience is no doubt our favourite experience! they even took photos for you and upload to their website. will def come back again for the other river.

Gabriel is very professional, funny and helpful!

warm greetings from su and Luke.

Gabriel was an awesome guide. My girlfriend and I are not from Alberta and we were amazed how beautiful this place was. Gabriel was able to tell us about the history of the place as well as guide us through the waves as a pro. Would recommend to anyone, he’s the best. Very professional all the way until the end.

Great time!!
Aug 2020 • Family
Amazing experience today. Our guide Richard was fantastic, and had a great conversation with my 8 year old about the rocks and mountains we saw.

We had a great time the entire trip. Rapids were fun, but tame enough that younger kids enjoyed them.

The entire process was well organized and ran smoothly even with COVID. All the employees were so enthusiastic.
