The guides were entertaining yet professional! My husband tried river kayaking and is hooked! Our kids and I tried the river rafting; wish we were here for the spring runoff, but the kids loved the games we played while we were just floating. Special thanks to Kathy (?) for arranging doggy care for us! Great company!

Nelson Whitewater Rafting offered an awesome experience all-round, from the topnotch office staff to the entertaining and personable guides. Even the drive to the river in "The Woody" was super fun...nice driving Jonah (and photography). Sean and Jerome were our guides and made our journey safe and exciting. In addition to Sean's stellar jokes/riddles along the way, the float to the rapids gave us a beautiful perspective of the surrounding scenery. I would definitely recommend this company if you're looking for a safe, yet awesome time! Thanks for the fun!

We had an amazing time. We were first time rafters and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our 15 year old daughter had such a blast! The rapids were perfect, not too scary but enough that we got a thrill! Our guide Kyle was amazing and made the trip even better! Would definitely do this again and recommend to anyone!

Thanks for the great whitewater rafting trip down the Slocan river with Sean. Was the first time for me and it was lots of fun from the beginning to the end. Sean showed his talent and knowledge with rafting and made everybody feel safe. The guides made the trip a memorable experience with their positive attitudes. I highly recommend this company.
