Went for 1/2 day last Sunday. Appeared at capacity, but they sent out enough boats and guides so everyone was in a manageable group (8 to a boat + guide). Claire was our terrific guide. Very knowledgable about the river and surrounding area. One of the better raft trips we've taken over the years. Highly recommend.

What a great day on the river. We arrived early and were greeted warmly by all of the guides and the chef/photographer Renee. They all had great and varied personalities. We started the day with a delicious BBQ lunch cooked by Renee (filet mignon!) and then Vern did a good job of delivering a quick and entertaining safety speech and... More

Loved this place, we turned up early and relaxed lying in the sun on the picnic tables while everyone else turned up, then Renee made an amazing BBQ feast - better cut of steak then a expensive restaurant could offer and tasty salad that went go along perfectly. The rafting itself was amazing! It was my first time and Clare... More

Amazing full day trip. Guides were fun, friendly and knowledgable! They really liked their job! Definitely got wet but your on a river so I don't know how you don't get wet. Food was nice and more than adequate. It not long enough to feel worn out at the end of the day. Ask for Jaimie to be your guide.

This is our first experience river rafting. We did the half day afternoon trip and it was perfect for our family of four. Our guide Jen was friendly and fun. I was hoping to see more wildlife. The youngest was six and oldest was 58 so anyone can go on this trip.

A super half day rafting with these guys! A friendly greeting at the office followed by a bus ride to the river. Very informative safety briefing and instructions given prior to setting off on the river. This half day trip would be suitable for all, there were some fun splash moments, but at no point were any of us in... More

What a way to start off a vacation but with a great experience doing something new. The Kootenay River Runners provided excellent fun & made sure that we will be back with our next trip to BC. My husband & I took our children with us, one that isn't afraid of much & one that is pretty nervous about everything... More
