Magnetawan River Day Trips

Whitewater rafting the Magnetawan River with Esprit!

The Magnetawan explodes out of Kneophli Falls as its spring flood waters pour out towards Georgian Bay. Located off Highway 124, between Sundridge and Parry Sound, (3 hours from Toronto), the Mag is an exciting early spring rafting experience offering high volume, technical class III-IV whitewater. The first river to open for paddling in eastern Canada, rafters can enjoy the surging water levels while the dam is releasing for the smelt run. Our day on the water includes a 4-5 hour descent, a hot riverside lunch, all safety equipment and wetsuits. After the trip, we celebrate the day with an ice cold beer, juice or soft drink... the first round is on us!

Local Accommodation

For local accommodation in Magnetawan, we recommend the Quiet Bay Log Motel. For reservations and inquiries, check out their website at www.quietbaylog.com.

What you should bring with you for the day

All your mandatory safety equipment is provided for you. Therefore, all you need to bring with you are some personal items to help make your day even more enjoyable. 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. As you will be joining us during the early spring, we highly recommend that you also bring an extra fleece or wool sweater, fleece socks and running shoes (versus sandals) for extra thermal layering under your wetsuit.
