Great guides, great adventure. Guide customized the trip to our adventurous group and he really made my son feel special on his 13th birthday. They were extremely understanding about bad traffic we encountered on our way and waited for us to arrive.

Had a great experience first time going rafting. Youngest was 8 oldest 43, did a family trip the 5 of us had a blast. The crew that took care of was amazing Izzy on the raft was awesome the kids loved her. Erin in the kayak was great after her safety talk she made us feel very comfortable as we aren’t the best swimmers. Greg was great joked around with my nephew and took great amazing pics. From arriving to end all the staff were great and friendly

Despite a mix up where we accidently signed up for the beginner Cheakamus River instead of the more advanced trip, we had an absolute blast! Our guide Morgan did an excellent job at making sure that we had a good time by telling us stories, sharing interesting bits of information, and setting up some fun balance games for us to attempt. Our favourite was one where we all (Morgan exempt) attempted to stand up on the edges of the raft, arm in arm, and walk around the edges in a full circle. Needless to say it ended with a few of us in the water;) The Cheakamus River is also absolutely stunning. We were lucky to be rafting down the river at the right time and were treated to movie-esc rays of sun shining through the mountains. We also spotted some otters and fish jumping nearby. The whole team in general does a fantastic job keeping you engaged, ensuring your safety, and speedily getting things ready/packed up as the experience progresses. They are also very COVID conscious as they made numerous efforts to keep equipment sanitary and everyone appropriately socially-distsnced. All in all, a very memorable experience and one that ensured my return to try out the other adventures. (Especially if they ever offer paddle board tours down the rivers)
