Paddleboarding, Rafting & Kayaking in Kimberley BC

Welcome to Kimberley & Cranbrook BC's Source for Summer adventure...

Opening June 1st for our 19th season!

The Kootenay Raft Co has been Kimberley, Cranbrook & Fort Steele's summer adventure Source for over 19 years.

The advantage of rafting in the Southern Rockies?  We have a Great Climate for Fun!  The Kimberley and Cranbrook area of the Rocky Mountains receives some of the most sunshine days in BC! This makes for warmer water, sunny blue skies & a more comfortable white water rafting or fishing river experience.

Go with the Pros. Established in 1998, we uses only certified rafting guides meeting all provincial and national safety standards to ensure the well being of your friends and family.  Surveys of our recent  guests identified that our high safety standards were the #1 criteria when choosing their river rafting trip.

You said it!!  Out over 70 survey responses, 93.3% of respondents said "absolutely"
when asked if they would recommend their rafting experience with us to a friend...

"Great group of guides. Our french guide, Benji was very competent and amazing with all 3 of our children. Definitely will book more adventures in the future, as our 5 year old says she wants to do this on her 6th birthday since we did it for our 8 year olds birthday." Andy, Kimberley, BC
