Great fun! Went here for my bachelor party and we had a blast! We had Andy as our guide and he was great. We got to joke with other rafts and everyone seemed to be having a great time! Highly recommend it!

My friends and I had a very lovely time at Swift water adventures. The staff was very professional and nice to us. Our guide Quinn was social and that made the whole adventure so much more fun. He also guided us very well. I highly recommend this venue for water rafting.

4 miles of rafting, 5 to 6 rapid points..$58 per head and 2 hours of rafting.. All the gear such as helmet, paddle, life jacket, outer covering for clothes was provided (no extra charge) Our instructor was Audrey, She was pretty experienced and it was a great overall experience! Would recommend to give them a try..

This was a very fun trip! Be prepared to get wet. The area had some amazing scenery. One of the rafts even tipped and the instructors were quick to react to the situation and get everyone onboard safe. I would definitely do this again!

I didn’t know how good rafting in Minnesota could be, but it was amazing. I booked a trip with a group of 7 for my bachelorette party and it was so fun. Our guide, Trent, was enthusiastic, funny, and a great instructor for our first time rafting. All the guides seemed as good, and the trip leader did a great job as well. The St. Louis River has some good rapids in late August, but we’ll definitely return next May or June for more of a challenge. We loved swimming in the river itself, which is tinted brown but not muddy. Afterwards we got an album of high quality photos for just $50. I can’t recommend this company and the experience enough.

Day on the river

Whitewater rafting with Swiftwater Adventures was the highlight of our trip. Highly recommended. Everyone that works there from the bus driver to the very competent guides were pleasant and fun. Our family loved it.

Do it!!!

I have lived in Duluth 20 years, and cannot believe I haven't tried this until this year! It was a blast, and a very memorable highlight of the summer. The water level was high, making for a very wet ride. I wish I had worn a bathing suit for the experience we had. There was an adventure swim and the option to jump from a granite cliff, during a picturesque stop. The scenery is like the BWCA, with the cliff and pines. The staff were very organized, capable, and friendly. Two staff accompanied our group of rafts for safety and photos. I cannot wait to do this again, and I have been raving about the experience to my friends.


Did not expect to have this much fun on our rafting trip. The rapids are much more than we expected which was awesome. We were worried it might be lame but it exceeded our expectations. Our guide, Trent, was so much fun.


It was an excellent experience that is exciting for everyone of all ages. The rapids are perfect, not too intimidating, yet incredibly thrilling. Great guides, definitely coming back!

Rafting on the St Louis River, MN

Surfing and the Electric Ledge. Patrick was our guide, he was awesome. Great photos! We will go again.

Awesome Ride for all ages

This was an awesome Ride! We went along with friends and family and really enjoyed it. It's not scary or risky, it's kids friendly. Our kids jumped into the water and swimmed also. The guides who came with our group are very friendly and gave us safe instructions and took care of us. Kory and Luke, Andy good Pictures! Carlson nice support! Thank you for this awesome experience!


We had a fantastic time and loved our guides. Lucas, Andy and Karsten were the best!! It was our first time and wasn’t nearly as scary as I worried it would be... in large thanks to Lucas! Thanks guys!!!!

Amazing rafting experience on the St. Louis River!

My son and I had a fantastic time! Our guide was amazing and informative! Plus, he kept me from getting sucked into the water when "surfing" our raft, which was an added bonus! Thanks for that Carston! The view was amazing along the St. Louis river too. Would love to kayak the Thomson Reservoir someday after this trip opened my eyes to it. Everything was done professionally following COVID guidelines too. We had so much fun and would highly recommend company and the adventure itself to anyone visiting Duluth! You won't regret it!

Great Family Experience

Our family of five had a great trip. 17 yr old, 14 and 10. We had never whitewater rafted before. We felt safe and our guide was great. The precautions taken for covid were fantastic. Thank you very much!
