This soft adventure rafts are perfect for first timers, or for people looking for a gentle white water ride, who are over the 23 kg weight requirement.
Experience the dynamic waters of Canada’s legendary Ottawa River in a guided raft. Get your feet wet as you splash and roll through one of the world’s great whitewater routes. OWL Rafting on the Ottawa River is a three-generation family-run resort, renowned for its attention to detail, exceptional service, and locally-sourced cuisine and it has been recognized as a Canadian Signature Experience.
Start your whitewater rafting adventure by checking in and joining others for your trip briefing, gear up, and climb aboard the OWL bus for a short transfer to the ‘put-in’, the start of your river day.
Here you meet your guide who will have you practise your strokes to prepare for the rapids ahead. Your guide lines the boat up for the best line, then with everyone paddling, you crash through waves and get wet- but the water is warm with Ontario’s hot summer weather. Each rapid on the Ottawa is followed by a ‘pool’, giving you time to relax and prepare for the next one. You will stop for a snack and maybe some swimming, floating, and perhaps see an osprey or beaver.
Before you know it, you meet the Pontoon boat, where you’ll climb aboard for a hearty hot barbequed dinner on the return cruise to the resort. Rafter wrap-up has you relive your day’s adventure as you watch a short video of your own trip: a great souvenir to purchase. Finish your rafting adventure by enjoying a sauna or a hot outdoor shower and play on our sandy beach.
This summer outdoor adventure is sure to be remembered and you will want to do it again.
