How much time should we allow for our tour?

We recommend guests allow for a total of 4 hours – this includes transportation from our base and back as well as river time.  Our check in/base is located in downtown Canmore, approximately 30-45 minutes from our put in locations.

What is included in the tour?

Our adventures include round trip transportation (including pick up in Banff), photos, cold refreshments, snacks, gift bag, life-jackets, wet suites, helmets and neoprene booties.

Where do we meet and what kind of facilities do you have?

Guests meet at our base in Canmore, AB.  You can click here to view a map of our base location.  Our store front has a seating area, clean changing rooms with washrooms and souvenir shop.

Is transportation available?

Yes, round trip transportation is included as well as pick up in Banff.

Is rafting safe?

Yes! Like most exciting activities, there is of course risk involved. To ensure these risks are minimized, all our rafting guides are trained in Swiftwater Rescue, First Aid & CPR. All of our gear is checked multiple times throughout the day to ensure everything is in seamless working order.

What grades of rapids will we experience?

You can expect to experience between 2-4 grade rapids – please visit our Rapid Guide for a detailed explanation.

Are there any weight restrictions?

Yes, our life-jackets are rated to a minimum of 40lbs and a maximum of 350lbs.

Will we see wildlife?

You might! Seeing wildlife is certainly an added bonus but we of course cannot guarantee it. There are many animals such as bears, wolves, coyotes, cougars, deer, elk, moose, osprey and eagles that use the river banks for feeding or hydrating. There is a possibility to see them even for a brief moment!

Am I allowed to tip my guide?

In Canada it is acceptable to tip your guide, reservations agent or bus driver if you feel they did an exceptional job. Gratuities are at your own discretion and are certainly appreciated.

What should I wear/bring?

Please bring a bathing suite (required), towel (required) and a change of clothes (if you wish). On cooler days we recommend bringing a warm fleece sweater (no cotton) – you may wish to wear under your splash jacket. You can bring a day pack to store your items.

Where can I leave my bag?

Since guests cannot bring their bags on the raft, they can be left on our secure bus during your adventure!

Are we allowed to bring our pets?

Sorry, but no. These adventures are not pet friendly.
