Exploits Canyon Adventure

Experience the biggest whitewater on the island as you raft through the stunning and unique red rock Exploits River Canyon. This two-hour whitewater rafting adventure will provide you with a non-stop adventure from start to finish. We start our adventure with an "optional" 15 ft cliff jump, followed by thrilling rapids, and ending with one of the best waves on the island. No experience and no swimming ability is required, but you must be comfortable in the water.  Our highly skilled guides will take good care of you, and with their help you can shut off your brain and enjoy the best whitewater run on the island!!!  Face your fears on the Exploits Canyon Adventure!

Part of what thrill-seekers love most about the Canyon Adventure is that the raft WILL flip, and you will almost certainly fall out at least once and end up experiencing the rapids up close and personal!  If that's just a bit too much adventure for you, you can instead book our Canyon Light trip.  Same crazy huge rapids, but the guides will make every effort to keep you in the raft and to prevent the raft from flipping.  Flipping is still very possible, as is falling out, but it's not as likely.  Looking for an even bigger thrill???  You should check out the Canyon Extreme!

Either way, you will be rafting the BIGGEST whitewater rapids on the island, so if anyone in your group is too nervous, please consider our Badger Chute adventures instead.  Still super exciting, but much less intense!

Canyon trips run at 11:00am, 2:00pm and 6:00pm daily!

This trip starts at the Salmonid Interpretation Center in Grand Falls-Windsor, see you there!

Important Note: Accessing the river in the Exploits Canyon involves descending rock-carved stairs and crossing uneven terrain. Not possible for guests with mobility limitations, knee or hip issues.  Run is not appropriate for guests with serious medical conditions or back injuries.  We cannot accommodate guests that are under 41kg/90lbs.  Please call us for details.  Our Badger Chute adventures are much more accessible and can accommodate almost anyone 5yrs+.

Looking for an even BIGGER thrill??

The Exploits Canyon offers thrilling, but safe rapids (or at least safe with our equipment and our guides), so this is the perfect place to really conquer your fears and amp up your adventure!  We have three additional options to really maximize the excitement on the Canyon!

  1. Canyon Extreme-Adventure - Ready to take things up another notch?!  Our Extreme Adventure is the same run as our High-Adventure but instead of using our normal 8-person rafts, we use a sporty 4-person raft that is half the size and twice as likely to flip!
     

  2. Canyon Extreme Sportyaks - Ready to leave the rafts behind all-together and brave Exploits Canyon in a kayak?  This is the run for you!  Instead of a guided raft, you will instead be in a 2-person whitewater inflatable kayak (sportyak).  It doesn't take much imagination to understand why this would be the ultimate thrill!
    *Prices are based on two-people per sportyak or four people per sport raft.  Additional charge for less paddlers.
