Rafting down the river during low season is a great way to get yourself excited for high season!! Our guide Alonso was fantastic, lots of great stories and oportunities to jump in the cool water, can't wait till 2017 high season, back in Kimberley for a week!!

My children (11 & 8) and I went on the 1/2 day trip called St. Mary's Express - wonderful (safety is a priority as well as having fun) - thanks to our guide Jessica ( and kudos to Scooter & Alonso)!

We went on the St. Mary rafting trip last week. The guides were all very friendly and knowledgeable. It was a great first rafting trip for our 2 young daughters and we can't wait to try rafting again a little earlier in the season.

We spent an enjoyable afternoon on the St Mary's River whitewater rafting. Some tips... Bring a hat with a peak that can fit under the required helmet. As well, bring a strapmthst will allow you to wear your sunglasses without fear of losing them . Our guide Alonso was fantastic! Well informed in both safety and about the region, it... More

My kids were given the best birthday gift ever: a spot on the St. Mary Express rafting adventure! Our guide was Leoni and her passion for rafting, nature and fun was very catching. It was such an awesome way to get my kids off screens so they can witness the beauty of nature all around them. My kids are still... More

We went rafting today with 5/6 of us being total newbies to rafting. A couple of us were a wee bit leery of the whole adventure but we instantly saw and felt that we were in good hands right from the get-go. Craig & his crew are awesome at what they do. "Lethal Leoni" was so great with the kids... More

Great way to get pre-teens off their devices and outside. We spent the afternoon on the St. Mary's Express. The kids loved navigating the rapids and swimming with the current. Our guide was a lot of fun. Highly recommend this company.

Our family of four went on the St.Mary's Express. We had a great time. The guides were knowledgeable and interactive. Our guide was a novice and the other 2 guides made sure to watch over her. I actually bounced out of the raft at one point and our guide was quick to save me. My husband was not eager to... More

Photogirl! We love reviews that tell a story like yours-moving from apprehension to excitement! We have a tight river team that works together, so I am really glad you got to experience that first hand-I will certainly pass on the review to the crew. Best regards, Craig More

We went on the St Mary's Express run and it was a great beginners trip. We were with another couple that had never rafted and were nervous about this trip. Well all of us had smiles on our faces as we did the trip. Great company, reasonable prices, knowledgeable and friendly staff, easy check in. What more could you ask... More
