Long story short we would trust Vern to take us over Niagara Falls in a barrel… but seriously we had the best time and Vern, Bill, Jack and Meg were beyond amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable and we felt safe the second we got on the boat. We loved learning how to actually paddle down the river! This company deserves 10 stars and we will recommend everyone to book with the Kootenay river runners! See ya next year!

Had a fantastic time with our guide Justin. He knew a lot of history of the area we were rafting in & was great with all of the rafters. We will definitely go again, we had so much fun.

We had a great rafting experience with Abbey at the helm. She helped reassure family members new to rafting, provided some excitement for a short dip, and great guiding information. Thank you to the entire team for the two hr trip July 13! Your humour and energy made the day.
