    Stop: 4 hours - Admission included
    Transport from Squamish and Whistler are provided free of charge. If you would like transport from Vancouver, it can be arranged for $35. The tour begins at our raft base at 8:45am where you will check in and fill out our paperwork. Once everyone is at the base, you will be introduced to our guides and given time to change into your wetsuits provided. The busses will then be loaded and the ride to the river will take about a half hour. On the ride, you will be given a safety briefing and some information on the river. At the put in, as the guides get the rafts and gear ready, the driver will help you get suited up in your safety equipment- making sure it all fits properly. From there- it's time for some fun! Cruise along the Cheakamus River enjoying the beautiful Paradise Valley from a unique vantage point. There will be tons of laughter and excitement as you bounce through the rapids and moving water. Part way along, you will stop for a break and enjoy a picnic lunch prepared by your guides. After that, it's back on the river for the rest of the trip. Once you reach the end of the river, the bus will be loaded and the driver will take you back to the base to dry off and change. Say goodbye to your new friends from there and enjoy professional photos taken throughout the day.

Super fun half - day for the family.

We had a great time on the river - saw a black bear, heron, seal and salmon. Plus there were great rapids! Ava (sp?) was a great guide but be careful... she tells some tall tales!

Fantastic experience! Aura (sp?) was a really great guide and it was just exciting enough to get the adrenaline going without feeling unsafe. Probably the most fun thing we’ve done all summer. My son will definitely be back.

A must-do when in the area!
Aug 2020
This was such a fun experience, certainly the highlight of our summer! Our guide Aura was amazing, funny, high energy and very skilled. Even though I was a little bit scared at first, that was immediately abated when I saw how professional and safe everyone was and how enjoyable the rafting is! Even in the more rough spots (there aren't many), it is nothing that can't be easily handled and it's super fun!

Best day ever!!
Aug 2020 • Family
We had a fabulous time as a family of never-been rafters. The whole ride was fantastic!! Our raft trip on the Cheakamus River was the highlight of our 4 night stay near Squamish/Whistler. Snacks were really tasty, and our guides Will and Zach were very knowledgeable and friendly! We will definitely go again!!

Amazing river rafting!
Aug 2020
We had such an amazing rafting trip today! Our guide David was wonderful, and all the other staff were too. We took our 7 year old son and he had an absolute blast. Everything was safe and fun. We will definitely go back, and can't wait until we can take him on the full day trip, when he is old enough.

Excellent first time rafting trip for my family with this company
Aug 2020
I recently took my family on their first ever rafting trip with this company. We had grandparents and kids in the raft with us. The company is well organized, check in was smooth, they provided all the equipment and all the guides were very friendly, helpful and knowledable. On the river, our guide (Izzie) was very entertaining, showed us a great time and know what she was doing.

It was a great first rafting trip for my family and I would recommend this company and the Cheakamus river as a first rafting experience.
