We had a fellow in our group who came all the way from Holland who had this on his bucket list, and the we learned they've have guests from 30 countries this year. Glad we were part of the mix.

You could tell that , when we visited , the owner /operator of Destiny River Adventures was tired. He was coming to the end of what must have been a very busy season and it showed. That having been said the actual experience of snorkeling down the Campbell River amongst hundreds of salmon was amazing. I would really recommend it,... More

We had a very great time at this Tour. The Guide did a good Job, Route was well planned and we saw lots of Salmon. Even if we didn't see any, would still be great. We floated for almost an hour through the river. Felt like superman flying through the air.

Destiny River Adventures was a fun, friendly group of guides. Somewhat chaotic time of organizing of fittings for wetsuits. However, the swim and snorkeling with the salmon was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Just being in the water and jumping off the rocks into the water was relaxing and cool on a warm summer day. Towards the end, the... More

No trip to Campbell River is complete without snorkeling with the salmon. The shallow rapids sections are very exciting, everything looks slightly closer than it really is so you keep thinking you're going to slam into rocks that you glide right over. Seeing the big salmon powering through the current is amazing. The guides are fantastic. I initially thought the... More

Daughter, granddaughter and I were very excited to snorkel down the river and view live salmon swimming in their habitat. Jamie and his crew were superb guides and kept us safe for the entire excursion. Jamie shared a lot of information about the flora and fauna of the area and he even had a few one-liners that got us laughing... More

We began our excursion with a "little" jump from a rock. Whoua the water is cold around 12 degrees. Then you swim with many salmons and it's really great We were on our own and the guide was very nice and talkative. We swam nearly to the end before the cold watched us. It was really a nice morning out.... More

My husband & I were delighted to both be able to take part in this together (I am a C 6-7 quadriplegic who uses a power wheelchaiŕ). Operator, Jamie, went out of his way to make us comfortable, safe & welcome. I worried about the temperature of cold river water but with the knowledge & experience of this company I... More

Jamie and his crew were outstanding guides! Their knowledge on the history of the Campbell River area, water system and fishing was very impressive. Snorkelling with large schools of salmon and trout; body surfing little rapids and starting our tour with a small cliff jump were all amazing experience we will not forget. We certainly will be back!!! Thank you... More
