The Exploits River is known for its world class Salmon fishing, but, it is also a great river to toss the kayaker around in its white water. The river has some wild rapids that range from class 1 to class 4+ depending on the water levels.

I spend a lot of time on the banks of the Exploits and when I see the “big red bus” in the area, I know that Riverfront Chalets has its rafts on the river.

Paul Rose is a friend of mine and to see his company take people down the river is always fun. Their screams and laughs are infectious! Watching them maneuver the rapids and give people a thrill of a lifetime is worth perching yourself on a rock and taking a few pictures.

Here are some I captured one day:

Those pictures were taken of the Canyon Run. Since I am not a strong swimmer, I opted for the calmer adventure called the Badger Shoot. This photo was taken last August. I am in the back on the right. It was a total blast and I will be doing it again.
