I broke my back on the jet boat ride 4 weeks ago - the boat was driven over such huge waves in such rapid succession that the impact from flying up out of my seat and coming back down completely crushed a vertebrae in my back. I spent 3 days in hospital in Montreal before being medically repatriated to England.... More

The guides were very good, friendly and super funny. They made sure that everyone had a really good time. It was the first time I tried river rafting, and I just had a really great time and a lot of fun. Can definitely recommend it!

Three Rapids to navigate was a great Intro to rafting. Matt was a knowledgeable guide. Would have liked it to be longer but very enjoyable day.

Its better to book in advance, for the best fun try and get to the front of the jet boat, you'll get wet, but that's what you're there for. Bring a spare set of clothing to get changed into, otherwise your car seats are going to get wet. The trip lasts just over 1 Hour. Photos would not be recommended... More

The trip is definitely fun but they claim its class 3-4 rapids and i think it's more like class 2-3. And there's only 2 sets of rapids. Also although the whole trip takes some 2.5 hours but the water time is half of that - the rest is safety and gear and the drive back. I would give them 4... More

What a gem! Our guide Sam was not only very well-informed about the history of the Lachine Rapids, but he was warm, personable and fun. We took our six-year old son too. At first we thought it would be too much for him, but it was a blast and he was able to duck down in the middle if the... More

I've rafted on the American River (California, USA), the Pacuare River (Costa Rica), and the Colorado River (Utah, USA) and this trip was nothing like I have ever experienced. We went in late August and the river is wide and surprisingly warm but what surprised me the most were the rapids themselves. The rapids are more like permanent waves made... More

A very fun activity within 20 minutes of downtown. The staff was great and we really enjoyed rafting down the st. lawrence. I can't say that the rapids were overly exhilarating but it was nonetheless a fun activity to do with the family.

This was a great experience. We were in Montreal for a guys weekend and wanted an outdoor activity during the day. We went at 3:30 - the trip lasted about 2 hours and was a blast. Our guide was great. You do have to do a fair bit of paddling - I wouldn't recommend for small children. You will get... More

The place was easily accessible by bus (we came from downtown Montreal). I would suggest giving it 1 hour travel time just in case. We made it just in time by metro & bus. The place was fairly easy to find. The staff was very friendly and helpful. When they went over "what to do if.." Portion, they made it... More
