The whole experience was wonderful, the rapids were a rush the hosts were fantastic. We would recommend this to all of our friends.
Lots of fun!
Andy_K, Jul 2022
Guides were very helpful for first timers. Had a great time and got lots of sun. You will do a lot of rowing during the trip and you will get wet. Highly recommend!

Great Currents
Jorge_G, Jul 2022
I did not expect the St Lawrence river to have such intense currents, suitable for great rafting for the whole family. Excellent guides too.

Bridget_D, Jun 2022
We drove in our car from the city center. Not difficult. Easy parking. Friendly staff. The staff asked that we all wear wet suits ( provided) due to a cool breeze on the river. There are bathrooms large enough for changing clothes. The friendly staff will hold your belongings while on the river. All equipment was in good shape. The rapids were larger than I expected and at times the rapids were over our heads. I was thrown from the boat but quickly brought back on board. However, I was the only one tossed and even the small children on the other boat had no trouble- so maybe it was just me. Beautiful views and the entire process was straight forward and simple.

Fantastic Experience
lisaskinker, Jul 2019
What can I say... this was so much fun! All of the guides were friendly and funny. Our personal guide, Gabriel, was absolutely fantastic... he was fluent in both French and English. He worked well with the kids in our raft (pre-teens). He offered us multiple opportunities to get into the water as it was an extremely hot day during our time. Highly recommend... a little bit of a workout but not too much!
Great family fun!
Shannon_A, Jul 2019
Our guide, Mike, was terrific. We had a blast in the Lachine Rapids. Our 11 year old was a bit nervous at first, but ended up loving it! Super fun for an all-in 3 hour activity.
So glad we did this -

This was incredible. A must do if you visit Montreal. It definitely gets your adrenaline pumping. I had no prior rafting experience, but felt safe even with 15ft waves. The instructors are amazing -- they are very personable, while taking safety seriously. It's a great ride.

Carlton B, Jul 2017
The level of rapids was less than I expected. The experience depends considerably on who else is in the boat and how much paddling they do. We had 4 youngsters who contributed little to our ability to maneuver into positon to get the better waves. We encountered only 2 or 3 good short rides, and there was a lot of paddling required by the participants. It can be a pleasant trip, but don't expect great rapids with a wild ride.

Yesenia T, Aug 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. the guides were all wonderful and full of joy. The guides allowed us to jump into the river a couple of times, making the experience even more fun. Only change I would make is allow the rowers to switch sides on the raft halfway through so one shoulder doesn't get so worn out.

To celebrate my son's 13th birthday, I decided to surprise my family with this excursion! I didn't realize that there were still rapids on the St Lawrence! We had a ball! So much fun that my so wants to do this again next year for his birthday! I wouldn't do this with super young children but my teen boys loved it, so did my husband and I. Our guides were fun, informative, and very kind! They show passion for rafting and the St Lawrence! We are going to do this again!
