Mother’s Day Sunday May 12th
Hey! Are you forgetting something?
This coming Sunday, May 12th, is Mother’s Day. How about treating your mom, gramma, aunts … all those great women who looked after you … Well, how about treating them to a fun afternoon of rafting?
Our specially designed, safe, comfortable rafts are perfect for the whole family, from the very young to the very old.
Make the whole day special: You’ve got time to go out for breakfast then join us at noon for 2 1/2 hours of carefree fun where we look after all the details. We’ll even take the pictures for you.
But book now. The rafts are filling up & it’s looking like we’re going to have great weather this weekend.
2013 Rafting Season Just Around the Bend
Just because there’s a little snow on the ground and maybe even some ice on the river, doesn’t mean we can’t go rafting.
We’re Canadian, eh?
And we’re getting pretty pumped that the 2013 rafting season is approaching.
We’ll keep you posted about opening day.
Fun for the Whole Family
Bring the whole family! Our specially designed rafts offer a safe, comfortable ride that any first time rafter will enjoy. Our trips are fun for everyone from toddlers to seniors.
You will float along a 16 kilometre stretch of the Athabasca River, passing through many small sets of rapids and calm stretches. Your National Park Licensed guide will point out the natural and human history of Jasper. For instance, did you know that the Athabasca River is the same route that was used by the “fur traders” many years ago, (David Thompson 1811).
We run rain or shine. After all, there’s a good chance you’ll get a little wet anyways. If you like wear our complimentary yellow poncho & keep it as a souvenir. Be prepared for some laughs and we’ll take care of the rest.

Board our fun shuttle bus and let the tour begin!
Our buses shuttle you out to our launch site. Your guided tour begins from the moment you get comfy on the bus. Our trained parks guides will share their in-depth knowledge of the parks in an entertaining, lively style. Before you know it, your bus will pull into the launch site where guides fit you with your rafting gear … everything but the oars. We do all the rowing while you do all the enjoying.
We even take photos.
At the end of your trip, your bus takes you back to town. The 2 1/2 hour trip will be something you’ll talk about for years to come.
