Overview
A fun, splashy half day journey down the Cheakamus River! Bounce through class 2 rapids and float gently downstream and enjoy the beautiful setting of the aptly named Paradise Valley. Enjoy a tasty picnic lunch and don't leave anyone behind- it's an adventure for the whole family!
What to Expect
The tour begins at our raft base at 9am. Transport from our downtown office and Whistler are provided free of charge. If you would like transport from Vancouver, it can be arranged for $35. 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 river, 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 get loaded back up 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 free professional photos downloadable from our website within the next few days following your trip.

Mountains, bears, eagles, rapids, views for miles

I underestimated how much I would enjoy rolling down the river surrounded by majestic fog covered mountains and seeing glimpses of snow peaks through the clouds. We were lucky enough to see a black bear cub by the river and eagles, hawks and ibis. I...More

Nice easy day on the river

Really nice people, nice, relaxed trip ideal for a family. Instructor was knowledgabel and chatty and also patient in the face of incessant questions. Only a few mild rapids, just enough to excite the kids and leave them wanting more and bigger.

Great family rafting

The kids (5&8) really enjoyed rafting down the river and getting wet in the rapids. Picnic snacks on the boat and opportunity to jump in for a swim. The guides were all really friendly and the place was well organised. Would highly recommend.
