Had the opportunity to do this as part of a recent contiki tour and was happy i chose to do it.

We had a boat full of the boys and our raft guide was awesome telling us jokes and trying to go as extreme as was safe. Along the fraser river it was raining that day but didn't matter since you're suited up even with booties.

You may have the opportunity to see salmon jumping up some of the falls which made the experience well worth it as well as swim down the river which was awesome (thank god for the suits tho!!)

Enjoy a fun safe day out with these guys.

The adventure we took was on the Fraser River and it was so much fun. Calder was our guide and he took time to learn all our names, make us feel safe and even tell a few jokes. We seemed to be the loudest group going down the falls - so we all had a great time. This was my first time white water rafting and although the falls were listed at 3 - 4 I felt safe and was ready to do it again. I was not crazy about having to carry the raft up a steep hill to by pass crazy falls - I have short legs - but this is my only complaint and even then totally worth it. If you book with the Maligne boat cruise to Spirit Island you will save some money as well. Beautiful scenery every where you look. Go for it ! I am hooked! And Calder you are right a Dirty Gin Caesar is wonderful! I am hooked on those as well!!

Having experienced white water rafting a couple of times in the 1990s, we were careful to select the operator that we thought would provide the best experience and we were not wrong in selecting Maligne Rafting Adventures. This is the only company licensed to operate on the Mighty Fraser River. The trip included transport to and from the rafting location and at least an hour of preparation, kitting up and safety instruction before setting off on excellently designed and maintained rafts. Our 'captain' told us that some parts of the river were as much as 4m higher than normal because of the recent wet weather and that we might exceed Grade 3 in some sections. We achieved 4! (6 is the maximum and 4 is normally the highest for 'amateurs'.)It was a fantastic experience. Everything about the operation was slick and professional, right down to the DVD made available for a small extra charge at the end. 11 out of 10 to you guys! Great value for money.
