It's amazing, although you might get a few nerves when drawing up to the meeting point at the casino car park. Don't worry the river guides are there to get you all down in one piece and will make sure you are properly kitted out, and know what to expect. The river is only slightly chilled and well be a...

Myself and 3 other mid-twenty yo mates went and did this together. Had a really great time thanks to our amazing instructor Shawn! He really got everyone involved and made the whole experience for us!

Adam was our guide, and he was amazing at keeping the energy levels high, despite the freezing weather going on that day.

I emailed twice to book a trip through their website and both times by the time the got back to me (second time it took them three days) they were full. I don't know how they are always full as they don't answer their phone and it takes them days to respond to email bookings. I went with another company... More

Tremendous fun with the family, all inexperienced rafters and the Kananaskis River was the perfect start to our adventures. And perfect thing to do on a 33C day.... Cool and refreshing, fun and exhilarating. In and out experience was great company to go with as well.

This was a great experience. The rapids were not too rough, making the rafting suitable for all ages, from seniors the children. Our guide (from New Zealand - forgotten his name), who was managing the rafting for the season, was fantastic - helpful, full of stories, with a great sense of humor, which further enhanced the whole rafting experience. Definitely... More

We took the 2:00 trip with friends from from the south. They were a bit nervous but had a great time. There is quite a bit of travel time to and from the water but it was well organized. Just realize the time they give you is not all on the water. Be prepared to get wet....it seems that water... More

I took my two grand kids ( ages 10 and 8) on their first rafting experience in August 2013. Kananaskis White Water Rafting was perfect for them. Our guide Corey was great, he made the kids feel very comfortable and made sure they were safely positioned in the raft. He also made sure that they understood that they would get... More

This was a beginner trip for my boys and I. The staff were knowledgeable and organized. They made the trip fun and interesting for everyone. We all had good eqpt to use and the price of the pics at the end was reasonable. We all lived it and would recommend.
