    Our family of four went out this morning for the half day trip. Our kids are 8 and 10 years old.
    If you are thinking about going – GO!!! You won’t regret it.

    We had a fantastic time. Our guide Ian was full of really cool information about the river and region. He has a great sense of humor, remembered all our names, got us involved…and was confident which helped us feel comfortable in the raft. The rapids were not too scary and just right for a family.

    The drive was short to the site…the drive back was loads of bumpy fun! Felt safe the entire time. They supply everything you need – helmets, water shoes, life jackets and a group dry bag if you want to bring your camera/phone. Sadly we didn’t bring a camera and missed out.
    Kootenay River Runners provided a great snack along the trip. The other two guides Ben and Jamie helped make the trip too – water fights!!

    Don’t worry about wet suits on +29 days…just bring some dry clothes, a towel for afterwards, sunscreen, and a drink for the ride home!
    Thanks TEAM! We will be back next year for a full day trip.
