I know it’s still a bit hard to think about summer when there is still great sledding to be had here, but we’re only a month away from getting our rafts back on the river! On May 13, 2012 we will be celebrating our 15th anniversary so we are going to offer some exciting special offers and contests to help thank you all for 15 wonderful years on the river!

Our first big announcement, and certainly the best rafting deal of the season, is our early bird rafting package for just $79!

If you book your Badger Chute rafting adventure by Sunday, April 15th, you can come rafting anytime* before July 8th for just $79!

If that wasn’t already a great deal, we’re also throwing in a free picture DVD ($20 value) so you can share your memories with your family and friends!

We have limited space available, so don’t wait until Sunday to book your trip! You can book your seat online at, or you can call us at 709-486-0892.

Meet Our 2012 Raft Guides – Part 1: Piers

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

11-IMGP0158"Hello all, my name is Piers Evans and I am back for round two! This will be my second year on the Exploits River with Paul at Rafting Newfoundland and I’m very excited to be back on the water.

For those who weren’t in my raft last summer, here’s my story in a couple of sentences. I was born and raised in Southern Ontario, but since the age of 17 I have been travelling and living all over the country and the world.

Two years ago I finished a diploma in outdoor adventure tourism at Algonquin College and Piers 2have spent the last three summers guiding on the water. It seems that I enjoy school, however, so my current situation has me living in St John’s studying at Memorial University in the off-season.

The season of 2012 is shaping up to be a great time to be a raft guide on the Exploits. There are some big plans in the works and some big fun to be had out there, I look forward to seeing you all out on the river this summer!"
