A must if you've never done it!!!

Willie Nelson (SP) was a great rafting guide and exceptional geology teacher. Had fun doing multiple runs of some of the rapids and getting a great run down of the local geology. If you want the front of the boat experience they make sure to swap people around... a very wet experience indeed.

Jul 2018 • Friends
My friends and I got a Groupon for 4 to do this power rafting activity. I was so excited because my last rafting trip in Whistler was memorable and fun.

The only reason I rate this 4/5 is because our experience leading up to the actual rafting was disappointing. First, we were lost and confused because the company moved sites and they had not put the proper signage on the road in Lytton. We came from Surrey (a 3-hr drive to Lytton) and the last thing we needed was to get lost.

Second, check-in was a bit of a hassle because the staff did not know how to operate their Ipad and whatever app they needed to use to sign people in. All the rafting participants ended up being behind schedule because of the late check-in.

Third, on the website, it wasn't clear what gear we were supposed to wear. I was expecting a wetsuit like what I wore from the Whistler rafting trip, but we were given poorly-made rain gear that still ended up soaking through with water. I think that they also need to clear up the need for participants to wear wet shoes because it was uncomfortable wearing socks and runners that ended up soaked throughout the rafting trip.

On the plus side, the guide was a passionate, knowledgeable man who had lots of experience and lots of history to impart re:many landscapes we passed by during our rafting. We were thoroughly entertained.

Overall, the rafting itself was fun. We hit lots of Class 3 rapids that offered a great challenge for us. In order for Hyak to get my 5 stars, they need to address the concerns I listed above.
