We had been rafting a few times previously in Costa Rica and Colorado as a family, but this one blew the others away!!! The rapids were a blast and the tour guides were funny and very nice, as well as informative. Our guide Duncan was amazing!!! We weren't expecting too much as the only available tours were for 2-3 rapids... More

Top notch experience, we went as a team of colleagues in August 2016. Despite picking what we thought would be the warmest weekend of the summer, we ended up with a forecast of a high of +8 degrees C, grey cloud and light rain. Knowing we would get wet anyways, not too concerned with rain as wetness was gonna occur... More

My boyfriend and I rafted Horseshoe Canyon on a very cold day in September and had a blast! All of the guys working there were hilarious, and our guide Vince was awesome. The cliff jump is intimidating but so much fun. Hope we can make it earlier in the season next time! Gorgeous views.

This was the first time my husband and I have ever been rafting. He was really nervous, he was so scared when he was the first wave breaker on our raft. However Alex was amazing and my husband soon was a raftaholic. Next time we are in Banff we will be booking with Chinook Rafting again!

I came rafting with a group of girls and we had an amazing time, we learned so many things we didn't know about the bow valley, we learned about movies, mountains, and what bird represents true love. We started the day off with really bad weather and the second we got onto the river blue sky appeared. An amazing trip... More

I have never white water rafter before so I was a bit nervous before hand. Clearly safety is this companies absolute priority and you are clearly instructed on what to do if you fall in. Well I did fall in, but followed what I was told and I was back in the boat in no time, and thoroughly enjoyed the... More

Had an amazing time rafting Horseshoe Canyon. It was a pretty cold day, but Chinook provided wet-suits, fleeces, windbreakers, booties, helmets, etc. to make sure everyone was comfortable. Our guide was Vince, and he was fantastic. Explained so much about the river, the rapids, the area, the rocks, specific places on the river where movies had been shot (The Revenant... More

We are a family of 4 (kids 10 and 14) and it was the first time the kids were doing rafting. They loved it!! Their only regret is that they wanted more!! Security is a top priotiry for all the raft guides. Our guide was Adam and we really enjoyed all the information (real and not!) that he provided during... More

My girlfriend picked this excursion of us and it was great. She was concerned that we wouldn't have the correct gear and Chinook Rafting provides it all. They give you boots, a wet suit, gloves, helmet, paddle (duh), fleece jacket, and a water-resistant jacket. If you're a guy, wear board shorts so you can easily slip on the wet suit.... More

Professional staff, fun rapids and an all round great time. Safety was emphasized throughout the day which made me feel comfortable shooting down the rapids. Simon was terrific and made the experience ever so memorable. I'll be back!
