The Final Dog Days of Summer

September 2019

The last long weekend of the summer is upon us, but it is not quite the end for Nelson Whitewater Rafting Co. We’re operating our rafting trips daily right until the middle of September, which means you still have time to get out on the river.

It has been an awesome season getting everyone  out on the Slocan River for our Scenic Float  and Facchina Rapids trip.  June was  full of high water and adrenaline junkies, with  rafts and rafters  alike being fully submerged in  the fast flowing river.  July and August were chock full of families, first time rafters and lots of white water surfing!

We also loved getting people out on the west arm of Kootenay Lake for a kayak or stand up paddle, it truly is a great activity for all abilities, and another cool way to experience life here in Nelson. Our office at the Prestige Marina will be open weekends and Matt will be here to set you up with your kayak or paddle board needs.

We saw so many happy faces this summer and hope to see some more as we wind up the remaining of the 2018 season this September, whether it is on our river trips or heading out on Kootenay Lake for a paddle.
