We went on this trip on the Athbasca River in early September. The inflatable boats carry some 20 people and are very stable. Everyone had sprayproof ponchos and full life jackets provided, and the "skipper", Logan, was extremely competent whilst also being entertaining and knowledgeable on wildlife, birds, nature and local history. We had a full spectrum on board including... More

Thank you Bob for pointing out that we can accommodate people with mobility issues. From toddlers to seniors, we can get almost anyone out to enjoy the beautiful scenery Jasper has to offer. The 3 hour trip includes transportation to and from the river. Water time is about 1 to 1.5 hours on the river depending on water levels. More

This trip was one of the highlights of our 2 weeks in Canada. Fantastic scenery, plenty of splashes without any unnecessary danger and well worth the cost with over an hour on the Athabasca River. Carson was the raft guide and from start to finish he was both hilarious and informative. Between quick witted humorous asides, he was able to... More

We enjoyed a raft trip on Athabasca river. The bus picked us up at hotel and drove us to launch point. Ponchos and life jackets donned we set off done river. Not too many bumps and Logan made the trip fun. Unfortunately it was very cold and raining so rather numb by the time we got back. Would recommend.

Thanks for braving the rain with us! We wish the sun would shine everyday for us but rafting is still a great activity to do in the rain, you're going to get wet anyway! Thank you for the review! More

It was a great experience for first timers. Our guide Wyatt was funny, very friendly and knowledgeable. Keeps you awake throughout the journey. No complaints at all. Great experience. Super friendly staff. A must try when you're in Jasper. Price is worth it.

There are a few rapids. It has class 1-2 rapids. Our guide, Frank (Francois) got me very wet trying to protect an elderly man on our trip. No complaint about that. he was a good guide.

We weren't quite sure what to expect when we signed up for this but it was fantastic! From the moment the old school bus turned up at our hotel and we were greeted by the driver, we got a flavour of what lay in wait for us. The bus takes you out of Jasper a fair way so you end... More

We were a party of 7 on the raft and were able to get one side to ourselves. Our Guide was Addison and he was great! Very friendly, knowledgeable and great with kids! He allowed the younger ones to "row the boat" - and the kids with us were thrilled! He even steered into water at my granddaughters request to... More

There were people on this raft trip from 3 years of age to 73 and everybody had a good time including myself. The tour guide had a raft (no pun intended) all of which were amusing and I think for the most part true, it takes about 1/2 hour by bus to the departure point followed by a leisurely 1... More
