Meet Your Rafting Guides

IWE hires only the most experienced whitewater rafting guides available who love making their living off the river because they are simply “TRUE RIVER PEOPLE”.

We have an in house guide-training program that we think is second to none in this industry. We are firm believers in safety kayakers and you will quite often see several of them buzzing around the boats if water levels warrant it. We look for the most qualified guides from across Canada and around the world because quite frankly we want to have the best guiding team in the industry… period.
