Rafting with River Wranglers: A truly unique experience!

Our Rafting Story

Tidal bore rafting has been a true Nova Scotian experience since the first rafting outfitter opened on the banks of the Shubenacadie river in the late 1980’s.The Shubenacadie is one of the largest rivers in Nova Scotia! It receives its great waves from the incoming tide of the Bay of Fundy clashing with the natural out going currents. Tidal bore rafting is a different adventure compared to the whitewater rivers many had experienced in other provinces. As rafting grew in popularity more outfits popped up along the river to match demand.

How it started..

Tidal bore rafting has been a true Nova Scotian experience since the first rafting outfitter opened on the banks of the Shubenacadie river in the late 1980’s.The Shubenacadie is one of the largest rivers in Nova Scotia and receives some of the largest tidal fluctuations! As a result, it receives its great waves from the incoming tide of the Bay of Fundy clashing with the natural out going currents. Tidal bore rafting is a different adventure compared to the whitewater rivers many had experienced in other provinces. As rafting grew in popularity more outfits popped up along the river to match demand.

Best waves 10/10 We went as a staff event and I can say I think evenyone had a blast! The waves were a lot of fun and Gabe was an excellent guide, my face was sore from laughing so much. We went later in September, it was amazing how warm the water was, I recommend a wet suit for the air if you have one for this time of year but really, they'll keep you so entertained that you wont even think of the cold!

Rough, Wet, and Dirty - the Best Ride of My Life These guys are the BEST! I’m writing this review heading home after rafting with my sister, her friend, and our dad to celebrate my sister’s 25th birthday. We had the privilege of having both Emmett and Matt as our drivers. The tour was filled with tons of BOREing knowledge (it was actually quite interesting) and an abundance of funny jokes. We stopped for mud sliding, we got slapped with water and rocked by the waves and we had lots of laughs. Matt lead us through most of the tour. He was born to take people out on the Shubenacadie River, guys. I’m telling you, this is his calling (Unless he decides to go big in the standup comedy world). If you are at all scared or nervous, there’s no need to be. From the moment we got there we were with friends. Matt and Emmett were both professional and their confidence, calmness, and humour made it feel like we were out for a cruise with old pals. Oh, I forgot to mention... today is also when hurricane Teddy began to hit us and we were still able to go on our adventure. There wasn’t a single moment where I didn’t feel safe! I’m sad that our adventure is over. I will definitely be back again! Much love for these guys.

Magic Mike There's never a dull moment on the boat. He either had us in the middle of the action or bent over laughing. Quick on his feet and hard to catch off guard, there's definitely some magic to Mike. We were hanging on tight and soaked while he calmly stood in the middle of the boat without a hair out of place. He has a certain sense of humor that has to be experienced to understand. This is a must do trip especially with Mike at the wheel.

Lots of fun Had a lot of fun. The beginning of the tour is calm so you get to take in the sights. When the tide comes in that's when the fun starts! I would absolutely do this again.

Awesome Experience!! We had so much fun!! Emmett was great and lots of fun. The mud sliding added so much to the experience. There was plenty of room on the boat and at no time was it scary...just all fun! Emmett was very knowledgeable about the area and the tides. From start to finish it was a great experience! Highly recommend it, you won’t be disappointed.
