This is a fabulous trip, just enough wave to keep you guessing, mixed with a little bit of adrenaline, and plenty of laughs!! Loved it- thanks to the great staff, and good company.

We did a morning trip in early July and had so much fun! If you are looking for something thrilling to do in Revelstoke in the summer then this is absolutely a must! Our guide was great and the trip lasted the perfect amount of time (around 1.5 hours). It was a cold morning but the trip was so fun... More

Apex made this easy for first-timers. Easy booking, easy to find office and nice staff. We were soon kitted out and on our way up river to the drop zone in Dirty Harry's school bus. Our guide Dan made things super clear and explained everything with some good banter thrown in. We were soon off down the 26kms of the... More

Too funny Nick, "Dirty Harry's school bus". You must be a big Clint fan. I had to google-up for a look-see and first one up the bad guy's getting the kids to sing row row row your boat. That's perfect. I love that song!!! Might need to work it into bus ride somehow. Then with "Newfie" Dan(from Nova Scotia) workin'... More

Rafting on 25th June: Pros: High water - good class 2-3 rapids. The guides are professional and made it very fun, and did a real good job. After rafting, availability of the hot tub and sauna is awesome! All-in-all a good raft experience with beautiful scenery (sometimes railway noises - so not that quite at times). Cons: reservation cancellation fees... More

Our third trip with Apex and they did not disappoint! Guides are very professional and make sure that all rafters get a good trip with lots of fun and excitement. The boats are excellent, and the river is a good mix of wild water and serene floats. Views of course are exceptional. Recommend it highly even if you've never done... More

Will be doing again! Our guide was really good. She knew all the names of the Rapids and also the surrounding mountains. Beautiful scenery! Hot tub at end was a real bonus.

Hey Jeremy thanks! Your guide was Kailee and we think she's awesome too. She's likely too modest to have mentioned it but she was a key member of team Canada in international paddle rafting competitions not so long ago. It's been a good summer to have that hot tub available, more than a few chilly days so far. Thanks so... More

I went with a group of friends to go rafting with Apex and we all loved it! The guides were awesome and so knowledgeable, and had us laughing the whole time. We were given wet suits and socks, shoes, a fleece, splash jacket, life jacket, and a helmet so all you need to bring is some non-cotton clothes (think workout... More
