We did the Kananaskis River rafting with two adults and two children 10 and 11. The guides were very organized, helpful and safety conscious. There were enough Rapids to make it an adventure for everyone. Our guide Duncan did a great job guiding our raft and giving us some information on the sights along the way.

Our family had an excellent first time rafting. We did the Horseshoe Canyon which was a great run for first timers. Our guides Rianna & Marshell were awesome!! Definitely would recommend to any one with children over the age of 12 to do as their first time.

This was a great way to spend a morning. The guides are entertaining and knowledgeable. The rapids were exciting and the cliff jumps were an unexpected thrill. Vince was the guide on our raft and he did a great job of making sure we knew how to power the raft and what to do in case something went wrong. He... More

My boys received this experience as a birthday present, I must admit at first I was totally nervous about having to take part too, but the guides were all friendly & explained everything thoroughly so by the time we set off I wasn't quite so nervous. It turned out to be FANTASTIC day out! Matt our guide, (not just a... More

Our nephews (from Germany) thought that this was the best birthday present ever!!! Our guide Matt was fantastic. He made sure that we all had lots of fun as well as getting very wet. The whole experience from beginning to end was very professional. Look forward to more family coming over so we can do it again.

We did the family whitewater which is class 2-3 and in the afternoon. It was great weather and there were 3 school buses full of rafters. That being said they were organized and spent the time to get everyone geared up and learn the basics. It was our first time and I was impressed with their meticulous safety concerns. Triple...

This was my first time rafting and this was a great first time experience for me since I had no idea what I was getting into. Caroline did a great job preparing us and coaching us through out our journey. She was also very knowledgeable about the area and her craft. A great guide for the day. I will definitely... More
