Badger Chute

The Badger Chute is a fun white water rafting trip that is perfect for anyone that wants to spend an entire day out on the river playing in rapids, swimming in calm pools, and taking in the beautiful scenery of the Exploits River. This experience features some exciting rapids while still being appropriate for youth as young as five and also non-swimmers. It's a perfect trip for families and anyone too nervous to try our Canyon Adventure. This trip includes a delicious meal served on a rock island beside stunning rapids but also has an express option with no stop for food. There is no minimum booking, single bookings are welcome as well!

Trips run 11am, 12pm, and 4:30pm daily! Times may vary. Check under "book now" to see your desired date.

Night Rafting on the Badger Chute

For a truly unique rafting experience, try our night white water rafting adventure! We hit all the same awesome rapids that we do on our traditional trip, but as we clear the "Badger Chute" the sun will be setting behind us for a truly spectacular sight. We'll spend some time surfing the Roost and the infamous 50/50 rapid in the dying sunlight before drying off on a beautiful rock island around a campfire.

 

This trip is truly something special. There is nothing like fire-toasted baguette and cheese while you relax on an island as your guides cook you a decadent meal of salmon or sausages with a light salad over an open fire. Once the sun retires enjoy hot chocolate and roasted marshmallows and be prepared for some amazing star gazing without any light pollution interfering.

The return to the Raft Shack will be lit solely by the light of the moon. It's tough to put into words how beautiful the river is at night, but we promise it's an experience you will never forget!

On cloudy days we'll skip the stargazing of course, but the rest of the experience will still be well worth it! Trip is ideal for adults, but mature kids are welcome.
