Whitewater Rafting and Cable Wakeboarding !
Are you ready to get wet? Combine whitewater rafting on the Ottawa River with a session of Cable Wakeboarding and Flyboarding!  Esprit and Capital Cable Park have joined forces to provide you with this amazing Ultimate Adventure package.
Raft Canada’s most famous whitewater river. Featuring great Canadian wilderness and spectacular high volume rapids, the Esprit “Two-Channel” Day Trip will take you down both the Calumet (Middle) and the Rocher Fendu (Main) channels of the Ottawa River. Only Esprit offers you both channels of the river in the same day. That means twice the rapids, twice the adventure, twice the excitement and twice the fun!
Looking for more water based adventure? Then look no further. Esprit is home to Capital Cable Park our region’s only Cable Wakeboard Park.  Essentially, it is Wakeboarding without the need for the noisy gas guzzling boat.  Get pulled around our course of jumps and elements as our staff pilot you through our flat, glassy, tranquil bay.  Your Ultimate Adventure package includes a 1hr pass for Wakeboarding as well as a 15 minute Flyboarding session.  Soar up to 30 ft in the air above the surface of the water, control your hover, try a back flip or crash and burn into the pool below (which is what happens often enough).  Flyboarding, like bungee jumping is one of those “must try” activities.  Now you can try it at Esprit.

NEW Covid-19 Kit included in your trip cost!  Every guest will receive an Esprit Non Medical Face Mask to be worn during bus transport, locally made hand sanitizer, souvenir pen, and COMPLEMENTARY PHOTOS!

We recommend that you bring a pair of shoes or sandals to wear on the river (they will get wet!), your swimsuit and/or shorts, sunscreen, water bottle, towel and a change of clothes. If you are joining us during the early spring (April & May), we highly recommend that you bring an extra fleece or wool sweater, fleece socks and running shoes (versus sandals) for extra thermal layering under your wetsuit.

Dress to get wet.  Shorts, bathing suit.  If its cold you can also rent a wetsuit or drysuit.
