Drift Boat Trips

Enjoy the classic western river experience out of our Clackacraft Drift Boats. Drift Boat trips run all season long, from mid April - mid October. A typical float trip runs 8-10 hours on the water, start times will change depending on the time of year. All of our Drift Boat Trips are on the Blue Ribbon stretch of the Bow River as it flows through the SE part of Calgary and enters the prairies. This 50 mile (80 km) stretch of river can be broken up into numerous full day float trips with each section featuring different wildlife, river character and fishing situations.
