      We visited Hydra last week, July 17, 2019 while on our Canadian vacation. We went on the afternoon adventure rafting tour and absolutely LOVED IT!! A major highlight of our entire week! Our guide was Dave O. who was so chill and laid back, yet completely knew what he was doing which put any nerves at ease. Great lunch, safety education, warm gear provided and all-around awesome time on the river...we HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! 👍🏻👍🏻

      I was a bit nervous when booking this tour as I've never been rafting before. I booked it for my husband and myself. From the check-in to the end of the trip everything was great. The staff was so helpful at explaining everything. We actually drove ourselves to the Hydra site from Banff, which was great because we had time to stop by and do the lower falls trail at Johnston Canyon on our way to Kicking Horse River (we booked the afternoon river trip). By the time we arrived for the afternoon trip lunch was ready! We had a grilled burger and potato salad, pasta salad, and some brownies all.
      Our river guide was Dave O. I can't say enough about how great of a guide he was. He's definitely been doing this for a long time so it made for a fun trip down the river! The water was chilly but the gear they give you was more than enough to keep the body warm. I actually welcomed the splash of cold water. You can't go wrong with booking this trip! I highly recommend it! Thanks so much Hydra for the wonderful experience!

      I thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. Water was lower this time of year so the rapids were a bit less intimidating. Kyle was an awesome guide. We always felt comfortable with him. He always talked and kept the boat lively. This was my first time and I will definitely start this as a new obsession. Beautiful, spectacular scenery and great, efficient company to work with. I would suggest driving to Hydra if you have a rental car. The transportation option can be a bit slower with more stops. You are so tired at the end of the day you just want to get back to your hotel. Organized, awesome, friendly company.

      An absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide Anthea was so funny, she had us in stitches. I was a bit concerned because Anthea is tiny but WOW, she could make that raft do everything she wanted it to! The lunch was great cheese burger and potato salad. The safety induction was very professional and the whole trip was one of the highlights of our Trans Canada holiday. There are a lot of rafting companies in the area but you really should give Hydra a go - they are terrific!

      OMG highlight of our holiday for sure. This was our first time ever rafting and it was so amazing. Rob our guide was fantastic and so much fun. Everything ran so smoothly and the lunch was just perfect. Everything is well explained and demonstrated for you and all gear supplied is in good order. Can't wait to try this again one day.

      This was the best decision of our vacation in Banff! The tour guide, Dave, was very experienced and very nice. He made sure that we all felt safe, but had a great time. The rapids were exciting but it always felt like he had everything under control. The facilities were very nice - there were changing rooms to get in and out of your swimsuit and wet suit. We were worried about being cold, but they provide you with all the gear and cover-ups you need so you are actually very comfortable and even welcomed the cold splash of glacier water in your face! Highly recommend this trip as a great way to see beautiful sights and experience some thrills!

      Excellent day even though it was raining and cold so we got wet from above as well as from the river. Be prepared to put effort in usually required at the hardest spots of the river. Good safety instructions. BBQ lunch was burger or vegetable burger with salad, coleslaw etc. Absolutely fine for this sort of activity. The bus drive from Banff to venue is over 90 minutes and the bus is a little old. Changing facilities are also very basic, annoyingly some ladies decided to get changed afterwards in the toilets, why do they have to do that!

      We had a brilliant time, wish we could have done the add on time at the end but unfortunately had to get the bus back to Banff, next time we will make our own way there and do the extra time.
      Could have done with seeing the guide at the end of the trip so that we could tip him personally he did a great job.

      Highlight of my holiday. This tour was so much fun. Everything was well organised and I always felt safe on the river. It starts of pretty calm to get everyone comfortable. The last leg of the ride is very exhilarating, with class 4 rapids. A must-do.
