I went on the river rafting trip along the Nith river. Our group was afraid the weather would ruin the day, but it turned out to be absolutely perfect!

Garth and Chad guided us along the river for about 4 hours. They could have easily just sat there steering us along, but they made a concerted effort to educate us on the local ecology in an accessible manner. Perfect for us city-slickers!

The river-rafting itself is nothing like a true whitewater experience, but if that's what you're looking for, go to Ottawa. This trip was more for a group of guys who just wanted to enjoy the outdoors and make it to the wedding day without any injuries.

I'm no expert in rafting equipment, but rafts and lifevests were clean and kept us afloat, so they must have been decent.

The entire experience was wonderful, even the booking/payment. Garth is very professional and well-organized. I'm already looking forward to booking a future trip. Perhaps a rafting fishing experience?

Thank Michael L
