We had an awesome day on the river with this group. Blair is nice and entertaining as hell and the chief bus driver. There were 3 rafts in our group and all the guides were super nice. Bradley, Sinead and Gregor. They offered up a wholesome lunch including some much needed broth! Lots of safety was instructed and given but lots of fun was had at the appropriate times also. Bradley was guiding our boat and he’s not only excellent at what he’s doing he’s fun and created fun. He’s also challenging Blair at who has the bad dad jokes. We had a great time and we’ll be back for more Everyone and everything was top notch

We had a fantastic day - the entire day was well planned with an emphasis on safety & practicing the rafting commands for paddling & movement in the raft at different times. Blair is incredibly knowledgeable & experienced. Our Raft guide was Elliot & he was knowledgeable & friendly & made our day wonderful. The cliff jumping was amazing with different heights for your comfort level. The meal was fresh & delicious. Ethan, the photographer took amazing pics to capture the day. We will be booking again with Canyon Raft.

What a fantastic experience!! Blair was a great host; gave lots of info about the surrounding area as we travelled to the drop off point.

The guides were exceptionally great - encouraging, supportive, informative, attentive, patient, knowledgeable, FUNNY!! It was a wonderful day on the river. The scenery is stunning. Saw some Bald Eagles and Osprey on our journey. Had the benefit of seeing the Osprey go fishing even! I have Celiac disease and they provided a gluten free option for me for lunch; even knew gluten free protocols re: cross-contamination! (That is a rarity.)

Safety was the number one priority; great instruction for maneuvering on the boat and on the river. A good time was the number two priority! This was my first white water rafting trip and it just made me want to go again! I highly recommend taking a trip with Canyon Raft Company!

I have to admit that I was a little nervous about doing the River Wild trip. However, Blaire & Lynne, the owners & founders of the company have years of experience under their belts. I felt very assured in their hands. They and their staff were very organized & patient and explained everything, (including all safety precautions), before we got started. My river guide, Sinead, was both entertaining and highly competent in her skills. She got us down the river without anyone getting tossed out of the boat. :) I was thrilled that I took the time to have this most memorable experience. Highly reccommend taking a river trip with Canyon Raft Company!

The Canyon Raft trip that we had was fantastic!! Excellent time with a great and very experienced guide. I would definitely recommend this company for anyone wishing to experience white water rafting in a safe and confident feeling scenario. This was our first time experiencing white water rafting. We went with a family of six, children from 11 to 18 years old and felt well cared for and looked after. We would definitely do it again if we had the opportunity!!

My favourite experince was everything! From cliff jumping, riding the bull, wildlife, lunch, floating stationery on a flowing river without using paddles or oars, guides, equipment, safety briefing, local history and stories. The Canyon Raft group are the ultimate professionals. I will be returning and will be recommending Canyon Raft to family and friends. Not to be missed by anyone looking for adventure in Fernie!
