We had so much fun on our rafting trip. Although my husband has been white-water rafting twice before, this was my first time and I was a bit apprehensive. All equipment was provided, you really do only need to wear a bathing suit. We were with a group of about 25 adults. Our bus was met by an employee who told us what to do when we got off the bus.... then we were given instructions of where to get our wet suits and booties and how to put them on etc.... they are given to you inside out as this is how they are cleaned.... my husband missed this bit of information and struggled into his wet suit only to be told he was wearing it inside out! You are then equipped with a fleece.... I wore two.... a splash jacket, helmet and life-vest. There are nice warm changing rooms where you can leave your clothes etc. Once kited out, our helmets and life-vests where checked by the guides to make sure we were wearing them correctly as we made our way to the rafts. Before getting into the rafts, one of the guides gave a safety talk and demo of certain situations and what to do etc.... everything up to this point and throughout the trip is done in a very entertaining way with a lot of humor. There were 8 in our raft and our guide was Andrew.... he gave us instructions on what to do when he gave commands before reaching the rapids. We had so much fun.... never stopped laughing/screaming! Andrew kept us entertained with local facts and stories about himself. Once back at the lodge, after drying off (bring a towel) and changing back into our clothes, we were fed burgers, salad etc, with hot chocolate, tea or coffee.
This is a very well run, organized and professional company. All the guides have a wealth of white-water rafting experience and worked hard to make our journey on the Kicking Horse River safe and enjoyable. Those of our group that had been white-water rafting before felt that the rapids on the Kicking Horse River were excellent as they were longer, and there were more of them than on some other rivers.

. Hi Coco, I'm very glad to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your trip with us! Your kind words are very much appreciated. Any one who wants to know what our company is about just has to read your review. I hope Andrew didn't have to use some of his very "English" jokes! Hope to see you again with us in the future :)

We had a fantastic afternoon rafting down the Kicking Horse River. There were 4 rafts , each with a leader and either 7 or 8 people in. The whole set up was very professional, the kit provided was excellent and facilities for getting changed were fine. The safety briefing was thorough and proved necessary as one of our rafters fell out during the afternoon but was swiftly back on board none the worse for a quick dunking in the river!!. The instructors have a good sense of humour, and made the whole experience thoroughly enjoyable - would definitely recommend this organisation. Also gives you a great view of the Rockies whilst on the river. Drinks and snacks at the end of the day were very welcome.
