“Was A Bit Nervous - But So Glad I Did This!”
Reviewed 16 June 2011

This is a family-run business and you can tell they care - very accommodating and professional. They provide you with all the gear you need - including wet suits, jackets, boots, gloves, helmets and shoes. They also offer the option to purchase a disposable water-proof camera which we did, however the quality of the photos was really disappointing, but I guess that's the only way to get snaps of your experience as you certainly wouldn't risk taking your own camera! I was very nervous about the the rafting trip as I have a bad neck - but it wasn't an issue at all - the experience was exhilarating but certainly did not feel at all unsafe. Really enjoyed the experience and would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Clearwater.

“A great day out in BC”
Reviewed 10 May 2011

We had never been rafting before and this experience exceeded our expectations.

We were taken out by Robert and he was an excellent guide a great knowledge fo his local area. The rafting was pretty exciting even though the water level was pretty low being April. The highlight was the cliff jump, normally this isn't done until the summer but Robert assured us that the water was more than deep enough and if we were "a little bit stupid" we were free to give it a go. Being more than "a little bit stupid" I eagerly climbed up the rock to the edge of the cliff. WOW it was high but after a bit of encoragement we jumped. After that it was a short paddle back to the town of Clearwater

Overall a great experience highly recommended for anyone who wants to give rafting a go

“Excellent White Water Rafting”
Reviewed 18 September 2010

My wife and I stayed in clearwater on the 8th/9th September 2010 and went white water rafting with River Adventures. Robert and Liana who run the trips couldnt have been more friendly and the experience was amazing, especially for first timers. Robert provided an excellent experience for us and the white water rafting wasnt the only good part - Robert was full of local knowledge on wildlife and the area of Clearwater.
We have nothing to compare our experience to as it was our first but we would recommend this to anyone who visits Clearwater.

“Wow - never thought that we would do this”
Reviewed 1 October 2009

We did this a couple of years ago on a large inflatable with 4 other people on board, you do your own paddling.

They are very safety aware and you are fully kitted out with wet suit, life jacket and hard helmet.

It lasted a couple of hours and was really good, at the end whilst we waited for the bus to come and collect us we floated over a shallow area that was full of salmon, the water was only about 12 inches deep so you could actually touch the salmon. We also saw a bear whilst we were driving up to the river from Clearwater.

A very well run professional outfit - we were well impressed and talked about the rafting for days afterwards.
