Our guide Paul was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and fun and guided the raft well. He is obviously experienced and showed us everything. We would highly recommend this company for anyone looking for a true look at the beauty of the canyon with great fun. Thanks to Paul and Blair.

We had an awesome trip down the Elk River! We were a group of 5 ages 27-58 and we all had a blast doing the white water tour. The main guide, Blair provided a very informative safety briefing and was very chill about everything. We had Tall Paul as our guide and he was fantastic and such a cool guy.... More

We had a riot with Blair on the Elk River. I have to say I had to be talked into doing this trip. I wasn't very interested in white water rafting. Boy, was I wrong! The rafts are well equipped and are obviously well maintained. The trips are fully staffed with qualified guides, photographers and support staff. The pre-launch safety... More

We had a great day. Blair and Lynn and their staff were extremely competent, fun, and knowledgable. We had sun, rain and sun again, with fun all the way through. Along with the exciting white water, we learned history of the area, saw bald eagles and other birds. The trip had 4 rafts with varying levels of comfort with water... More

We decided to just try the float trip for our first time on the river rather than the white water trip. It was relaxing and Jamie our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and had a lot of experiences to talk about of his own adventures around Fernie. We stopped for brownies and juice part way down the river... More

Took my two kids aged 7 and 8 on this trip. Very experienced guides (Blair is a true pro as are the rest of his team), top notch equipment, incredible scenery and great running commentary on the area (geography, history etc). If you want to do a real white water rafting trip with your family and not just a "family... More

You get picked up in an awesome old school bus & given all the gear you will need. The guides, employees, and everyone really is super knowledgeable, reassuring, informative and fun! I have never had so much fun! Our boat guide, Blair, was just awesome! And they have a photographer that takes amazing pictures that you can buy on a... More

I am not great with water, but I really wanted to try this experience. Blair and his crew did a great job of going over all the safety stuff. I appreciated the humor he tossed in. :) The Elk River "Wild" trip was what we did. I thought it was a perfect mix of bigger waves and calm stuff. The... More
