Is it safe?
Very! Rafting in British Columbia is regulated by the BC Government. BC regulations
have a reputation as being the strictest in the world. All of our raft Guides
are certified and carry BC Rafting Licenses. In addition to paddling skills,
guides must have a minimum 80 hour Standard First Aid course & a Swiftwater
Rescue Technician course. Our boating and camping equipment is top-of-the-line,
and for added safety the guides have short-range radios for communication
between boats. All trips carry a satellite phone for communication with "home-base"
in the event of an emergency situation.
Do I need to know how to raft?
Not at all. We assume that this is a new experience for everyone. Before you
ever step into a boat, your Guides will give you a full explanation of the
raft and all of the associated gear to make sure that you are comfortable
and feel completely safe. The first day of our trips is planned to be easy-going
to allow you time to adjust and soak in your new surroundings.
How fit do I have to be?
Our trips are designed for the person who wants to explore the wilderness
and be a part of the experience, not just watch it go by though a bus window.
You will be paddling, hiking & living outdoors, so you do need to be healthy…but
not a triathlete.
Are there any age restrictions?
Travelers have ranged in age from 10 to 72 years old. We do require that all
participants under the age of 19 be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
How many people are on a trip?
On the expedition trips, we take a maximum of 12 travelers per trip. This
translates to better service and the ability to accommodate different activity
levels and interests.
How's the food?
Our menus have been designed by an experienced chef with years of outdoor
cooking behind her. All the guides are trained in preparing great, hot, wholesome
