We found Bill by accident - had wanted to do a rafting trip with another outfitter, but we liked the flexibility of Ottawa River Adventures better. Bill was professional, timely, and great fun. My husband is recovering from an Achilles tear so it was important to me to make sure that we weren't getting into anything too physical. Bill tailored our morning so that my H didn't fall out of the raft and my son could try fishing for the first time. Bill knew the river very well and b/c he had a Zodiac, we were able to zip here and there (no rowing!). On top of tailoring the trip to our tastes, Bill also provided great information about the river and the animals and birds we saw. He took video and pictures, and delivered them via email in less than 24 hours. Remarkable. We have since passed along this information to anyone who has asked, b/c we highly recommend this experience. Thanks Bill!

Wife purchased this trip for me as a Father's Day gift, and I'd highly recommend Ottawa River Adventures for anyone. My daughter (11) & I headed out early on a gorgeous July morning - and the day was fun, memorable and exciting. I learned a tremendous amount about the wildlife, trees, currents, the river, history and so on. Caught pike, walleye, catfish, and a bunch of bass. My daughter had a fantastic time. The rafting tour was exciting, but we felt 100% safe at all times. Bill clearly has made his passion his vocation - and it was a great experience to hang out with him. Charming, fun and extraordinarily passionate and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to my next trip already.

This trip exceeded my expectations! It’s been the most fun adventure I’ve ever had in Canada. You get a perfect amount of fishing and rafting all while enjoying such beauty of the Ottawa River. Bill is so knowledgeable and made the trip so memorable! You definitely feel like you are in the best hands and very safe while he guides you through! He caters the whole trip to your liking so you can’t go wrong with Bill! We are already planning our next trip!

I live in the Ottawa Valley, originally from England, and this is my go to activity whenever I have friends or family to visit. I have been on two half day Zodiak trips and a raft fishing trip taking friends and my father out. Every trip is different and just as exciting and fun as the last. This year I took my 65 year old father on the raft trip and had a fantastic time. We got to see some beautiful parts of the river, only accessible by raft, and couldn't help but catch fish. I'd like to say it was skill but it was all thanks to Bill and his fishing knowledge. I then took two friends from England on the four hour Zodiak trip last week. We had amazing luck as the water levels rose substantially so Bill was able to take us further up the rapids. Bill's control of the boat is outstanding. You'd never think you could take a boat up these huge rapids but Bill made it look like a walk in the park. I can't recommend Ottawa River Adventuers and Bill enough and I can't wait till my next trip out with him
