“Owl Rafting is a BLAST”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

Our family had a great time with Owl Rafting on the Ottawa River. I highly recommend them. Their personnel and facilities were excellent. The only thing I would have changed would be bringing sunscreen even though the weather started out rainy - but ended up being sunny and beautiful.

If you want to try whitewater rafting on the Ottawa River, go with Owl Rafting.

“August 25-27, 2013”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

My husband and 11 year old son spent two days rafting with Owl last week and it was a blast! We chose the High Water Adventure for both days and would definately go sport next time now that we all feel safe and secure about the rafts and the guides. We were guided with Dylan the fisr day and Keaton the next and both guides were professional, knowledgeable and very safety conscious. They told us exactly what to excpect before each rapid and what to do in case we ended up in the water, where to swim, ect.. very safe, eveyone watching out for each other. Really great experience!! We are definately booking again. We stayed in the cabin rental, very clean, plenty of space for 6 people to sleep, food was execellent as well. I can find nothing negative to say about our time there. It was really fantastic! Please dont' forget to tip the guides!!! If you go down to the islands on any excursion, they will ask you outright for a tip and we always tip them, so please tip these guys and ladies too!! They are too polite to ask or maybe are not allowed to ask, but they do accept tips and they are mostly students so they can use the money!!

“Great for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was our first time rafting.

We stayed one night in a small cabin. The grounds were well maintained. The bathrooms are clean and not too far from the cabins. We enjoyed using the kayaks and SUPs. The campfire was a nice place to hang out at night.

We enjoyed the family rafting tour and had fun body surfing on the rapids. The guides were great. The food was okay.

We felt very rushed from after breakfast to packing up and checking out before going on the tour. Perhaps staying after the tour would have been better than staying beforehand.

We hope to go back in future to take part in the more adventurous rafting.

“Wicked-Awesome 2 Days of rafting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was my first time rafting and my husband's second. We camped for 2 nights and had 2 days of rafting; the first day we were in the 12 person raft and the second in the 8 person sport raft. Our package also included 5 meals.
Everything was spectacular. The people, location, food, and facilities were amazing. The staff were extremely friendly and made us feel at home. Our guides Dylan and Kevin were truly rock stars. We pitched our tent within view of the Ottawa river. Everything is very clean. There are tons of activities to do in the evening when you get back to the resort. The food provided was great.
We are already planning our next trip to OWL.
