I've been on three kayak trips with Ron down different sections of the Shuswap River, and he provided a very safe experience as well as providing lots of tips and advice from his own vast river running experience. Equipment is excellent and the lunch and...More

Taking a rest from the hikes I decided to surprise my partner with a day at Big Bear ATV Canoe and Kayak. ATV was the game that day as the recent flooding made the other options a bit too unpredictable. The couple running the business...More

We signed up and paid for an 1.5 hour ATV tour, but in total we only spent about 45-50 minutes riding the ATVs. Started the tour 15 minutes late, and had an unnecessary extended snack break for 30ish minutes. All in all disappointing and lame....More

Thanks, it was a fine ride ; 206 km through a wild forest, three lakes and an old village at the top of the Shuswap River and one of my favorite days of the summer.
