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 as it is possible that you could fall out of the raft. This is an incredibly safe section, and that is what our highly trained guides are there for! With their help, shut off your brain and enjoy the best whitewater run on the island!!! Face your fears on the Exploits Canyon Adventure!

Trips run at 11:30am, 2:30pm or 6pm daily!

This trip starts at the Salmonid Interpretation Center in Grand Falls-Windsor! This is different from the Badger Chute which starts at Riverfront Chalets between Grand Falls and Badger. 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.  Please call us for details.  Our Badger Chute adventures are much more accessible.

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 super stable 8-person rafts, we use a sporty 4-person raft that is half the size and twice as likely to flip!
     

  2. Canyon 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!
