Rafting with River Wranglers: A truly unique experience!

Frequently Asked Questions

Experienced Tidal Bore Rafter? First time wrangler? We have the most common questions answered below as well as some of the uncommon ones you didn’t know you needed!

We have rafters of all ages! However rafters must be at least 6 years of age and more importantly they must fit SAFELY in a lifejacket. We require adults to accompany children under the age of 16.

The Shubenacadie is known for its waves and also its mud! Be sure to dress for the weather and also wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. The mud from the river tends to stain clothes and shoes so wearing older footwear and clothing is always best. If you get cold easily, having a hoodie or extra layer is always nice. Bring a spare pair of clothes to change into after rafting as well as a towel for showering when you are off the river!
Every rafter will receive a life jacket for the tour and MUST wear it at all times during the trip. Rain gear is available for the colder days on the river but keep in mind it will not help you stay dry when the waves come!
Rafting comes with the inherent risk of Mother Nature and moving water. As a result, we train our guides to maneuver through the river safely and confidently and always have your well being in mind. As guides, our clients safety is top priority and is not taken lightly. We want all of our customers to feel comfortable when they are rafting with us.
