About Wild Blue Yonder Rafting Adventures
White Water Rafting in Revelstoke: The class 3+ Illecillewaet River has big, splashy waves and rapids, but is not too technical or high-risk, it’s a great trip for beginners, but thrilling enough for those who've rafted before. Starting in Glacier National Park, we get on the Illecillewaet River at Albert Canyon for an exhilarating 26km ride through gorgeous scenery. The trip finishes with an epic water fight using our exclusive super-soakers! River Pirates for kids! Take your kids on an adventure they'll never forget! Performed in a hilarious improv style, this unique adventure includes face-painting, bandanas, swords and treasure... and you get to take it all home! Sing songs, battle with swords and find the gold! On the Columbia River Journey paddle through time to Revelstoke’s rich history since the time of the fur trade brought to life by costumed actors on a calm, class 1 section of the Columbia River. All trips Include rafting gear, fresh snacks and free trip photos!

River Pirates
1 review
Performed in a hilarious improv style, our crazy Captain and First-Mate (theatre students) will have you in stitches and the little ones bedazzled, while our licensed raft guides safely navigate the raft. The experience lasts 2.5 hours and includes a 1-hour float on a calm section of the Columbia River, just outside of Revelstoke. PFDs (lifejackets) & water resistant tops / pants are provided. Little pirates get bandannas and face-painting, plus they take home the props: a foam dagger, a velvet bag of gems and gold coins, and an official Pirate Certificate. PLUS free photos!

Relaxed Revy
Meet at our Rafting House at 621 Victoria Road. Dress in weather appropriate clothing: we provide water/weather-resistant jackets and a PFD (lifejacket). It’s only a 10-minute drive to the river, during which our guides will entertain you with a safety briefing and jokes! At the river, take a short, 5-minute walk to Moses Creek waterfall, for wonderful group photos. On the river, the guide sits at the back of the boat and rows; you either just enjoy, or help paddle! The river trip lasts 45-60 minutes, depending on water levels. Have a snack and it’s a quick 10-minute shuttle back to the rafting base.

The Illecillewaet River is an exciting whitewater rafting trip in Mt. Revelstoke National Park through gorgeous scenery and wild sections of white water. This class 3+ river is characterized by big, splashy waves and rapids, but isn't too technical or high-risk: it’s a great trip for beginners! We start at Albert Canyon, 30km east of Revelstoke, and go for an exhilarating 26km on the river. It finishes with an epic water fight using our exclusive super-soakers!

Review of: River Pirates

The staff was very friendly and the experience was great. We loved becoming pirates and finding the treasure! We also greatly enjoyed the story of the man-eating moose. Even the bus ride there was fun as we played "The Captain Says".

Excellent guides, stunning views, exciting rapids - amazing experience! Note: this is not a "passive" experience - you are expected to paddle hard when called for! The guide (from Chile) was friendly, experienced, and made the trip one to remember!

Excellent guides who knew every inch of the river. They made everyone feel comfortable including small children. It was our first time to try rafting and we’re definitely going to do it again now that we’ve had such a positive experience.
