“Snorkel with salmon a must do !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2012

We (3 adults) had a wonderful time. Went in mid August and saw hundreds and hundreds of salmon all around us. Next visit to Vancouver Island will definitely include a repeat of this day. The staff were excellent and even the weak swimmer in our group felt safe. You have the option of returning to the raft whenever you want and then continue to stay with those still snorkeling. Yes the river is cold but all the equipment we were supplied with (wet suite, boots, gloves, life jackets etc.) were warm and in great shape and ensured a wonderful time.

“wilderness adventure, lower Nimpkish River”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

This was an awesome way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Jamie and his guides made for a safe and enjoyable white water rafting. We travel the Nimpkish River for 21km downstream to the lake, encountering wildlife, fish, the most beautiful scenery on the planet and the history of the logging industry on Vancouver Island from the 1940's. Jamie was born and raised here and lived all his life here, he has done his research, most by living it, to make this trip one of the things you can cross off your "bucket list" or make it the trail run and do it again next year.....thats what we're doing. Lunch was served river side, awesome spread of healthy food and drinks then snacks a couple hours down river.
I can't say it enough that these guys did it up first class.....see ya next year :)

“a wonderful day on the river”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

Had an amazing day on the river doing the "Nimpkish River Wilderness Adventure"...the water level was too low to do the "whitewater" trip but this one suited me fine. It is a long full day of travel and rafting. Stopped along the river for a wonderful lunch and later for a snack. Had the opportunity to cliff jump but it was just a bit too cold and high for me...maybe next time. After our day on the river there was hot chocolate waiting for us on the bus which was just what was needed and a great surprise! All the guides were so friendly and knowledgeable, with so much energy. If you want a great adventure with the amazing beauty of Vancouver Island take a day trip with Destiny River Adventures!
