Booked a rafting experience last minute for a bachelor party. Kootenay River Runners were very accommodating. The Toby creek run was an excellent experience. Our guide Andrew (big grizz) was awesome. Highly recommend the trip and Andrew as a guide

I'm not sure they supply waterproof clothing, more like a wetsuit that keeps you warm (including booties and potentially gloves), and you wear a bathing suit underneath. Bring a towel and dry, warm/comfy clothes for after.
