You will get wet!

It was so much fun. I have done rafting before but the high tides brings it to another level (book at the highest tides, it is worth the wait).

I took trip B which is shorter and I was happy about it at the end because being wet for so long wouldn’t have been fun.

I cannot comment in the driver because there were kids in my boat so I felt it didn’t go as aggressive as I would have liked, I wish they would make that part of the process when they organize the groups. I would have paid extra for that.

The entrance is steep and not paved so if it rains it may be hard for some cars to go up.

There are a few showers and porta potties, they storage your keys for you and there are shoes if you don’t bring good ones… They are shoes that people left behind.

One thing I didn’t like (no under their control) is that other companies let people jump to swim in the middle of the tides… so dangerous and practically blocked the way for all the other boats. IMO it should be ilegal, it is an accident waiting to happen.

The experience was amazing, my observations are minor and more for information but…

I would totally quit my job and ask them to hire me if it wasn’t because you are wet for so long as driver lol.

Our morning River Rafting trip with Hailey was superb. We were 8 friends and family of various ages 25 to 60. The rafting trip was full on and we definitely needed a bit of hand strength to keep hold. There were many laughs and wet faces and bodies throughout the trip. We always felt safe even if not always secure as there was a lot of up and downs and bouncing here and there.
The mud sliding was a lot of fun, so slimy slippy and smooth.
Highly recommend this excursion, we all will be back.
It seems to be a very well run organization; from the check-in, the greeting and instructions, donning the gear, the trip and the ending with showers available.
Thanks.

10 stars 🌟 . We had SO MUCH FUN! Our group went out for the 4 hour harvest moon tidal bore and our guide Jason expertly barreled us thru the waves. We got pounded and it was awesome. All staff at this site are great - happy, energetic and a blast to spend a day with. Thank you for the most memorable part of our Nova Scotia adventure.

We had an 8:00 AM trip with Emmett & Jackie early Sept '22. It was a cool, foggy start to a beautiful day. The trip and the experience was absolutely top notch. Good education, good thrills & really good skills shown by Emmett. Overall, we could not fault any part of the experience. Full value for money and an unforgetable time.

We went as part of a group of 12 people, including my 10 year old son and nephew. Emmitt, our captain gave us the perfect amount of excitement. I would strongly recommend this trip and this tour operator.

We really enjoyed our trip. It was well organized and a unique experience. The owner, who drove our boat, was fun to talk to as he related what he knew about the river, the tides and the boats. Definitely worth it!
