Esprit is well managed and fantastic! I would always pick Esprit as my number one choice for rafting in the world despite with other excellent rafting companies in that area of North America.

Esprit is an amazing company full of great people who had just been struck with some bad luck. In may 2016 their main building burnt down due to a grease fire in the kitchen. It was terrible. Not only are they a great rafting company but they are such an important part of the community. They held pizza and movie... More

We were greeted with friendly service, shown the grounds (we stayed in a rented cabin) and had the opportunity to freely use the fun equipment on site. Everyone working there was so kind and inviting. The rafting experience the next day was amazing. I'm... More

We stayed for 2 nights and both had never gone white water rafting before. Everyone (the guides and other rafters) were very well educated, provided great training and an amazing experience! The food was fabulous, the accommodations were great (we stayed in a hostel), and the rafting experience was incredible. The smaller rafts make the whole experience that much better... More

THANKS to all the great staff at Esprit Whitewater Rafting for making our family mini-vacation a thrill for everyone! We enjoyed the full day of rafting with our awesome guide Dave! Dave's experience and enthusiasm made our whole family feel at ease. Without a doubt, a great company to experience whitewater rafting with!
