Legend (Tyler) is a very helpful and funny guide, very experienced. He made the trip amazing, interacted with all the travellers in the group with respect and made us laugh. Made us feel safe all the time. The rafting in the Toby Creek is a must do if you are travelling to the area

FULL DAY ON THE KOOTENAY RIVER
This was such a fabulus rafting experience.
For a start it lasted a full 8 hours from start to finish, with a mid morning break for coffee and cake, and a lunch stop with meats, cheese and salad, both taken in the woods by the side of the river.
The adventure of 45 km (just over 28 miles) took us downstream on a fast flowing river with cliffs and amazing BC scenery all around. Yes, we did get wet and yes, the water was cold but it was all part of this epic voyage.
A highlight of the river trip was to stop at Pedley falls. Somehow the boat was secured sufficiently long enogh for us to take some amazing photos.
We were fortunate and thrilled to see 3 back bears from the coach but the undoubted standout moment was seeing a mother grizzly and two cubs by the side of the road.
Finally, all credit must be given to the River Runners Team - Jim, Quentin and Eric who managed the logisics of the day perfectly. Our raft leader, Quentin, was so knowledgeable about the river and skillful in the maneuvering the raft. Thanks Quentin, you kept us entertained all day.

Outstanding white water rafting full day trip with Kootenay River Runners. Stunning views, guides who are fabulous and skilled (and loaded with ample dad jokes), and rapids that are fun for family of all ages. Ideal for our group tweens teens and adults, with many first timers. Zack was our guide, extremely knowledgeable about the area as well as rafting. He was a joy. From booking to everything on the day, marvelous experience. Highly recommend.

Great first time whitewater rafting. The trip was made great by Quinton and the rest of the crew. It was my first time out the river and was made memorable with a focus on safety but a ton of laughs to make it fun. I will go again and would highly recommend it to famil and friends.

I took our grandkids who are 10 & 12 on the Toby Creek rafting trip last weekend. The creek was running well and everyone had a great time. The water was cold when we got splashed but we warmed up quickly. Our guide was Tyler and he was terrific. Great sense of humour and a very high energy level. He made sure that we all enjoyed the trip.

My dad and I participated in the full day tour on the Kootenay river. We booked on a whim and I haden't done any research prior to the tour, so I expected some rafting. What I didn't expect were the jokes and banter from the guidess and all other staff, the water fights, and overall great fun and entertainment.

Our guide Mason was great and fun to chat with between all the action. We had a great time and were well taken care of. The other guides and staff were a lot of fun too.

I absolutely recommend doing the full day trip as it was well worth it. My dad said, "That was the most fun I've had since my 20's" (he's now in his 60's)

Would do again in a heartbeat. Thanks again.

Four of us did the whole day trip on Kootenay. We had a fabulous time, the staff were great and of course the views were amazing. It’s great to see the park from the water and we had so much fun with our fellow crew !!!! Special thanks to Mason our skipper and Q, whilst it was great fun safety was never compromised. Guides were a credit to the company and ensured the experience was all positive. This is a must do if you are in the area

We did the full day raft on the Kootenay with our 9 & 12 year old daughters and loved every minute of our day. Our guide - Darren (the owner I think), was fascinating and in full control of the raft. The stops are perfect - a nice morning snack break with coffee, hot chocolate and food. Then back on the rafts for a couple of hours to lunch - also delicious and plentiful. These guys are a well oiled machine. Safe, fun and totally entertaining. Then add in the incredible scenery. Blue water, mountains and wildlife. Our day on the Kootenay was perfect. The hours just disappeared.
