    Had a great time with my family on our rafting tour. Ian, our Captain was amazing! Very knowledgeable, easy going and super nice. Everyone enjoyed this amazing adventure and I’d recommend it to everyone, young and old!

    Great way to experience Ottawa on a hot day.... whether you're a tourist or a tourist in your own town. Exercise, safe thrills, history, and fun! #myottawa

    Did the 3 hour family rafting trip on the Ottawa River with our multi generational family including 2 eight year olds, their parents, and us, the grandparents. Felt very safe doing this activity during Covid. Our family of 6 were given our own raft which usually can hold 12 people. Our guide Emmy sat at the back about 6 feet back.  Boat had a motor which she used at various times, so paddling was not too intense. We went through 3 rapids and had opportunities to leave the raft for body surfing, cave jumping, lazy river floating and swimming.  Drinks were provided. Life jackets and helmets were sanitized upon exiting. Our group had our own van to shuttle back to our car. There was plastic between the driver and passengers.  It was a really fun day for both adults and kids

    We had a brilliant time with Ian our guide. We were a party of adults with younger children and everyone enjoyed themselves. Very professional. Thank you.
