Wonderful trip! Highly recommended. Bryce took our family to the very scenic Talon Gorge on the Mattawa River. He came with kayaks and other required equipment suited to our ages and abilities. Before setting off, he provided some brief training and gave us time to practice our new skills. Bryce is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area.

I went on a kayak trip with Bryce on Saturday morning and had a great time. His equipment is all in good shape and good quality so it makes the trip enjoyable. The other group that was with us had a younger child that was able to join because she sat in the front of the double kayak that he had available. Bryce is a very knowledgeable guide that knows the waters in the area and can also help you with your kayaking skills if you want to improve your technique. I would definitely go on a paddling trip with Bryce again!

My pre-teen daughters and I had a breathtakingly scenic kayak tour on part of the Mattawa River, guided by Bryce Gartner, owner of Shockwave. It is an experience I highly recommend for individuals, groups and families. Expert in risk prevention and wilderness first aid, Bryce provided a safe and fun tour, using high-quality equipment and an approach tailored to our family’s interests and capabilities. Five stars ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ and a HUGE Thank You
