During our Two Day Family Raft & Adventure Raft Package you spend your first day on a fun whitewater family rafting trip. You don’t need to paddle as your guide uses oars to take your raft down a more conservative route on the river. Throughout the trip your family is having fun in the water, body surfing the waves, swimming and cliff jumping*.
On your second day you advance to the Adventure Rafting Big Boat. This type of rafting is suitable for guests who weigh a minimum of 90lbs (41kgs). You will embark on an 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. You’ll get a chance to body surf and float, and possibly do some cliff jumping too: it’s up to the river! All participants are required to paddle.
Each rafting trips include a river pontoon cruise back to the resort at the end of the day. Put on your dry clothes and feast on a freshly prepared grilled buffet while you enjoy a scenic ride back to the resort. Once on dry land, your guides will show a video presentation where you can relive your day’s adventure!
During your stay you get full access to the OWL Resort, choose your own activity or relax on the beach. Play a round of frisbee golf, a game of beach volleyball, or try your luck at horseshoes. The resort is not a licensed establishment so our guests are welcome to bring their own alcoholic beverages. Ice cream, snacks, cold drinks and ice are available for sale on site. We also boast a large floating swim dock with slide, a disc golf course, volleyball courts and a hot sauna.
This package is ideal for families with mixed interests. You can raft as a family together on Day 1 and on Day 2 the adventure seekers can get their fill while the others enjoy a resort day with the Family Raft & Resort Vacation Package. If you are really adventurous ask our office staff about upgrading to the Sport Raft instead of the Big Boat for an added $20.
*Cliff Jumping is not available at certain water levels. Some rapids along the river can be too big for family rafting and there is the possibility you may have to walk around one or more rapids during your family rafting trip.
