Hello everyone, My name is Colleen and im going to let you in a little review of my very first trip of rafting high water. I have done many runs down the Ottawa river the past 11 years and this one was by far the best run for me. Another epic weekend at Wilderness Tours. I can now say that... More

Dear Colleen, Thank you very much for review and look forward to hosting you again. Your description of a high water weekend is bang on. The only thing I wish to add is that no one has to run the big rapids if it's not for them. At the big ones, we stop and scout providing options for those who... More

Jordan, We sincerely appreciate your kind comments. Treating our guests as family and "sharing the magic" found in whitewater has been our passion for the past 4 decades. I am pleased my children, Joel and Katie, are on board to continue that tradition well into the future. Thanks again. Joe More

I have gone as a group of adults three times and camped and took my cheerleaders as a team building activity last spring.

I have done the river rafting once here, and it was good. I have done the jet boats 3 times, good also. I purchased 2 wagjag as a gift, which were not used. The purchase price was $180.00.
