“Family-Friendly Adventure for All”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

After speaking with a few different companies, we chose Liquid Lifestyles' 14 km river raft ride. With boys aged 12 and 7, I was apprehensive about whether they were ready for such a trip but after speaking with the owners, they immediately put us at ease. To keep things safe and fun, the guides accommodated our concerns by portaging our kids when the rapids were too rough. Thanks Scott, Adam and Robin for the amazing ride. It was an exhilarating experience for all. We could not have found a better way of ending our vacation... who needs Disneyland???

“Fun rafting trip”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

One of the activities we heard many good things about while being in Clearwater was a rafting trip on the river. After reading reviews on tripadvisor and checking some websites, we decided to go for Liquid Lifestyles. They were also cheaper than the other operators we considered.

We had a great time. We did the 3 hour rafting tour, which according to us was enough. The first 2 hours of the tour is especially wild. The last hour is quite slow, but the scenery is beautiful so still nice. Our gear was good and the guides do what they can to make it a memorable experience. They have a very high safety focus and explain how to paddle, what to do, etc in a very good way.

Only slightly minor point is that a small mistake was made during our reservation. We had actually booked the morning tour and we were told over the phone that at that point there were not enough people for the morning tour but in case more people showed up we would not be called and the trip would go ahead. We were not called but when we showed up on the morning of our rafting tour, it was clear that they forgot to call to inform us the tour was postponed till the afternoon. It was not a big issue for us because we could change our afternoon plans easily, but if this would not have been possible, we would have had to cancel the trip. Minor mistake and for all the rest, we had a great time!

“Any day on the river is a good day”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I have been on more professional looking rafting trips in the past, but this was still a fun day.

We were a little concerned when the first guides to show up seemed to have an attitude that suggested that they had just come from a late night party. Our guide had on a pair of very old shorts that did not show well where the crotch had been split. Not a confidence provider.

The drive up the river to the start point was pretty long, with one stop to make sure that the van would re-start before committing to further travel. Pretty cramped in the van with 2 full boat loads of tourists and the 3 guides/swampers.

The starting point was a beautiful sandy beach, and most of the wet suit and pfd's were of decent quality. The saftey talk does provide enough scare to make sure to be aware out on the water.

It was a bit unfortunate that the biggest and best white water of the day came within the first part of the tour. After that, there were a lot of dead spaces of quiet water between short white segments. Lunch should be termed "simple", prepared sandwiches. Nothing fancy.

We were a little short changed on our time, so our tour ended up skipping the hike to the falls, and had a "floating luinch". Not sure why that happened other than it took longer than it should have to get the day started. One last thing, be prepared to carry the raft off of the river and over a portage if you are doing the full day.

The River is beautiful, the jumping off of the bluffs into the river is a blast, and any day in the wilds of Wells Grey is better than doing anything else.

“Adrenaline Pumping Rafting Trip!”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Having never done ANYTHING like this before two of our party were slightly nervous about a full day rafting trip! Our guide, Bonnie, was brilliant in explaining our safety training and we completely respect both him and Adam for keeping us safe and having a brilliant day! We liked the fact that there were two rafts in case one had any difficulties there was someone else there as back up which we now know is quite an important factor. Not all companies seem to do this. Sabre Tooth rapid was amazing! It was a FANTASTIC day - one that will never be forgotten for quite a few reasons - all of them good!! My heart was beating nearly out of my chest for most of the day!! Bonnie and Adam you were brilliant - thank you guys! We loved the floating picnic - along with Sabre Tooth this was one of our highlights - plenty of delicious food for everyone in beautiful surroundings - what more could you ask for? Lots of fun and encouragement/help when needed!! You definitely need to wear well fitting trainers though they have plenty to choose from should you not have your own! Lots of interesting information about the river. Always felt that all guides were professional and took our safety seriously - we will never forget this amazing adventure - thank you. You may be a small company but you're perfectly formed as they say!
