White Water Rafting, Exploits River

Back in August, my wife and I did a whitewater rafting trip on the Exploits River in central Newfoundland. Joining us were two other couples Steve and Tara, and Chad and Kathy.

We spent the weekend at Riverfront Chalets owned by Paul and Joy Rose (, who also run the rafting tours ( The chalets are beautiful, and also have an outdoor hot tub. What an amazing time we had! Below are some of the pictures, and there are also some videos on my youtube channel, if anyone is interested in taking a look.

Swimming in the Badger Chute. You can jump in the rapid, and let the eddy give you a free right right back to where you jumped in. It was a lot of fun

Whoops, looks like we lost Steve

A great healthy lunch!

When we tipped our raft over, I think I got Chad's shoulder in the face!
