It provided a great opportunity for a team activity with family members. It was the first time that all family members rowed together. I will certainly do this over and over again.

Our family had an awesome experience with everyone from The Paddle Station from beginning to end of the trip. It was a beautiful day in Calgary for the exciting raft trip. We'll remember the awesome sights along the Bow River for a lifetime!

Kayaking on the river is a great way to get a different view of the City and get some exercise. It was easy to coordinate and book and reasonably priced. We were kayaking novices but had no problems and really enjoyed our excursion.
