We found Bill by accident - had wanted to do a rafting trip with another outfitter, but we liked the flexibility of Ottawa River Adventures better. Bill was professional, timely, and great fun. My husband is recovering from an Achilles tear so it was important to me to make sure that we weren't getting into anything too physical. Bill tailored our morning so that my H didn't fall out of the raft and my son could try fishing for the first time. Bill knew the river very well and b/c he had a Zodiac, we were able to zip here and there (no rowing!).
On top of tailoring the trip to our tastes, Bill also provided great information about the river and the animals and birds we saw. He took video and pictures, and delivered them via email in less than 24 hours. Remarkable.
We have since passed along this information to anyone who has asked, b/c we highly recommend this experience. Thanks Bill! More

Bill is so knowledgeable and made the trip so memorable! You definitely feel like you are in the best hands and very safe while he guides you through! He caters the whole trip to your liking so you can’t go wrong with Bill! We are already planning our next trip!
