Our shop is located on Memorial Drive in the Calgary Curling Club (720- 3 St NW). You will need to arrive there to pick up and your equipment, pay for the equipment and sign a waiver – if you have not completed it online. Your raft is deflated and folded and fits most vehicles. We will also give you a pump, paddles and safety kit as well as Life Jackets.
You can arrive with 2 vehicles which means you will drive your self up to West Baker Park Boat Ramp or Shouldice Park are the usual starting points. Please see tab Shuttle Service for other options. You can leave a second car at our shop (Free Parking) as you will be finishing at our shop and will need it to drive back to get your first vehicle.
Alternatively – you can call an UBER or a Taxi to drive you to the Park you want to start at and when you float back down to our shop you can be on your way. On most weekends (weather dependent) we will have blown up rafts waiting for you at West Baker Park.
Once you arrive at your starting point you will pump up the raft. It only takes about 10 minutes.
Get into the water and the river will flow back to our shop. Life jackets are mandatory.
Once you pass under the Peace Bridge (Red Bridge) call our shop, the number is on our lifejackets and the raft. This way we will send someone to the shore to meet you and help you out of the raft.
Stay to the left-hand side and aim for the next bridge. One of our staff will meet you there to help you out of the river. He will take the raft back to our shop for you.
Now come back to the shop and let us know you returned the equipment and be on your way.
We do have a shuttle service – but it is just our truck and takes up to 4 people every hour. It is usually booked well in advance and needs to be reserved when you reserve a raft. On weekends we have added a new 20 person Transport bus – please reserve it in advance.
