Embark on a daylong adventure whitewater rafting experience through the dynamic Rocher Fendu rapids on the Ottawa River. In our most popular 12 person Big Boat, you’ll paddle, splash, and roll down one of the world’s great whitewater routes. You have an experienced and passionate guide controlling the raft using oars at the back. Travel down an untouched wild section of pristine river and rekindle your sense of adventure. You’ll get a chance to body surf and float, and possibly do some cliff jumping too: it’s up to the river! The Ottawa is a pool-fed river with big meltwater in the spring and warm water in the summer, providing fun for all seasons. All participants are required to paddle.

As the currents calm down, we meet OWL’s signature pontoon boat. Put on your dry clothes and feast on a freshly prepared grilled buffet: the grand finale. Once back at the resort, your guides will show a video presentation where you can relive your day’s adventure.

Trip B Itinerary

This is our most common schedule. Your itinerary may vary from this. Please check your invoice for your arrival time.



Check in at the Office: everyone in your group must come into the office upon arrival to sign a waiver

Rafting Briefing

Meet with your trip leader for your orientation before you pick up your gear and change for the day.

Shuttle to Put-In

The bus will depart promptly at 10:00 AM. Please ensure you have dropped your car keys at the office and put your dry clothes in the duffle bags before jumping on the bus.

Get Wet

After a short shuttle to the starting point, you meet your guide. You climb into your raft and your guide will take you through some on-water instructions that teach you how to paddle and work together. Once everyone has received a safety briefing, we descend down our first rapid, the legendary McCoy’s! Smile for the camera: along the way a photographer will meet you on the river to capture a snapshot of you rafting.


During the lower water season we love to surf! This is when we turn the rafts around to catch some river waves. This leaves us totally wet and anticipating more rapids! Whitewater alternates with flat water: you’ll have the chance to swim and float in between the adrenaline rush of the rapids.

Midday Snack

Trip B has a late lunch, so to keep you going we provide a small snack. You may get to cliff jump during this break. 

More Rapids

After snack, you have the energy to challenge more rapids. If you’re rafting on the Middle channel, you’ll run the awe-inspiring Garvin’s with its stunning drop. On the Main channel, the second half of the day features Hair and the mighty Coliseum. At high water, Coliseum is the largest commercially rafted rapid in Eastern North America. Water features and the channel we raft depend on the water levels, but you’ll have a great time no matter what the level is.


At the bottom of the rapids you will meet OWL Rafting’s signature Pontoon Boats. Hop aboard the pontoon boats to find your dry clothes or towels and a hot BBQ meal waiting for you. Enjoy your hearty lunch as you cruise back to the OWL Resort.

Back at the Resort

Once back at the OWL Resort, please return your life jackets, paddles, and helmets to the gear lofts before joining us at the beach for your last workout of the day, the “Beach Party”, as we put away your rafts. If you have plans back in the city and need to rush away, you are now back at your vehicle and able to head out.

Rafter Wrap Up

Once the Beach Party is over, get changed before meeting back in the pavilion for the video replay of your day. Our guides will meet you to watch the fun all over again.

Stay or Go

Head into our Boutique to pick up a souvenir or purchase a copy of the video to take home with you. Grab a coffee before hitting the road OR Hang out a little longer. Enjoy the sauna, hot outdoor showers, and beachfront before departing at your leisure.
