Madawaska Kanu Centre in Barry’s Bay is the home for our gentle family rafting, suitable for anyone 2 years of age and up! Our Madawaska River Family Rafting Trips are a great introduction to the whitewater experience.
Start your trip by checking in with the MKC office 30 minutes prior to your scheduled raft time. Meet your guides and collect your helmet and lifejacket before jumping on the bus to the top of the rapids. Your raft guides will give you an on-water briefing to teach you how to hold on and let you know what to expect heading downstream. Our skilled guides steer from the stern of the raft through 5 fun-filled kilometers of beautiful scenery and tumbling whitewater in the Algonquin Park area. You hold on for the rapids and enjoy the ride!
The first rapid of the day, Staircase, introduces you to the thrill of white water. You will get wet as the raft descends through class I-II whitewater rapids. During the trip we stop at the legendary “Claudia’s Roller”, where kids love to jump off a big rock into the current and body surf through waves. Once we reach Mud Bay the rafts float across the flat water as you get to tube jump and and dive into the water before reaching the take out.
