Going through the rapids...
Stephanie_M, Sept 2022
Going through the rapids and getting wet was exciting! It was great to jump in the water. The wetsuits were an added bonus as it was windy. When you get done, drive down the river and see the rapids from the shore.
SO much fun!
Nicole_L, Aug 2022
So fun! Safe, informative, scenic and such a thrill! My 12year old loved it as did we - so glad we decided to do this on our trip to MTL!

...And we are so glad that you enjoyed your experience with us on the water. We hope to see you again at Rafting Montreal.
A cool way to travel!

The pre-tour training was vital to a successful and fun trip. From the moment we climbed aboard the raft we enjoyed every minute of the voyage. Our guide was Morgan and he treated everyone with respect and kindness. We all felt safe due to his level of experience. We took our grandsons, 10 and 14, and they had a ball. The river was warm and the boys both jumped in when allowed. Highly recommended this trip for the entire family.

It was a great time with my son doing something fun and exciting before he goes back to college. The scenery was beautiful, and Felix, our guide, was wonderful.
I had an amazing time. I would do it again

Jumping out of the boat at the end. And the force of the rapids was amazing. And my tour guide was a lot of fun
A great time for all.

Lots of fun!
Andy_K, July 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!

We had an amazing time. The staff was knowledgeable and a joy to be with. We will definitely do it again.
Great Currents
Jorge_G, July 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, June 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.
Response from Host, July 2022
We really appreciate your review Bridget and thanks for sharing your experience! We are glad you felt safe and that you enjoyed your time with us :)
Lots of fun

The rafting was fun, easy for all ages. My rating is low because I had to keep following up on getting my photos
Fantastic Experience
lisaskinker, July 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, July 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 -

tanneryager, Aug 2017
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.
A lot of fun and the guides are great...

Carlton B, July 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.

Theresa O, July 2017
The guide on our trip was personable, knowledgeable and a lot of fun. The staff made sure that we were all properly outfitted for the trip and spent considerable time going over safety procedures. I felt that I was in good hands and this trip was very fun and memorable.
The experience was great. Wonderful...
