White water rafting in Horse shoe canyon was amazing. The best part was the cliff jumping. The rafting staff were friendly and did an incredible job of keeping all of us safe. Richard, our guide had excellent knowledge about the river and was very friendly. Overall amazing experience...

We had a lot of fun rafting with Chinook. The rafting was very fun and cliff jump was awesome. Our guide Dave was funny and responsible. If you are thinking about rafting in Banff, Chinook is the one to go with. Evan and Yushan
