Great first experience

First time white water rafting, couldn't have asked for a better experience. Got in on short notice, staff were excellent and the trip was just long enough. Will be going again... read more

Went out twice in one week. The guides are exception; fun, experienced, informative. First time was August 17 and water was great. Second time only 4 days later and the water had dropped almost half! Was disappointed in that ride as I was expecting more, but in all fairness, the staff did tell us water levels had dropped. Still it... More

Our guide Ryan was amazing--Knowledgeable, funny, and a very good guide. My kids had a blast and as this was their first time rafting, they have got the bug. We recommend this company and the rafting experience wholeheartedly!!!

Apex is a very well run business. You can tell they have been in business for a while by the quality of the experience. I have been white water rafting a couple times previously, but this was by far the most "bang for your buck". There are lots of rapids that make it exciting,and not too scary so families are...

Great first time rafting with our two teenage boys. Our guide Dan was funny and ensured our safety yet challenged us to make sure we had experienced full on whitewater rafting! Great instruction and gear which kept us warm and comfortable. And bonus, we saw a bear on the riverbank who quickly ran away as soon as we approached. We... More

May look scary to some,but these guys are professionals and we had a blast! We booked the package that includes the coaster on Mount Revelstoke and the buffet breakfast. Excellent value for the money.

We had such a fun day rafting down the Illicillewaet (still can't say it right!) our "Newfy" guide Dan was very professional & most polite always asking us to paddle "please" - such a Canadian. My teens loved the rapids, just the right mix of thrill & splash but not too scary. Hope to return during high water season to... More

These guys have a nice little set up working out of the big hotel in town. The rafting itself takes about 3 hours. We were there as a couple and were put with other families and I have to say we had great fun, mainly due to our guide being so friendly and getting everyone working together in the boat.... More

HappilyeverRafter, Owner at Apex Raft Company, responded to this review

Happy to hear you enjoyed your time on the river and thank you for the great review. It's typical of all BC rivers to recede through the summer and lower water levels generally mean less intense rapids, hence all the families in the raft later in the season. You'll notice the rapids are highlighted much more in reviews from June... More

The white water rafting is 26km long and it is beautiful. Not very difficult, it is ok for Young children. The material is good and the security too. At $95 per adult I think it over priced compared to other locations though.
