“Best part of our vacation to BC! Everyone enjoyed it and had a blast!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2011

This was by far, the best part of our trip for everyone! Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable and fun! We would definitely do that again! If would have been nice to have some bigger rapids and more close up pictures, but other than that, perfect experience! There were 4 of us teenagers, and our parents surprised us, telling us it would for sure be fun, and they were right!

“BEEN RAFTING A FEW TIMES THIS WAS BY FAR THE MOST FUN AND WELL RUN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2011

I first did the slocan river which is nice and close to Nelson and a great introduction to rafting . It starts off nice and easy enjoying the view, I even got to jump in and swim a set of rapids. Then towards the end the action heats up with some fun rapids.
It was so much fun I had to bring my girlfriend and venture out to the Salmo river.
It was by far the most exiting and fun time ive had rafting.
John and his guides are very proffesional , informative , safe and most of all love being on the water having a good old time!
Thoroughly reccomend trying it out.

My wife and I did this rafting adventure for the first time and it was absolutely perfect! We cannot wait to come back next year! Honestly I don't think we could have had better people guiding us down the rapids, it's deffinately a must do while in Nelson B.C.
