I’ve been on many white water trips but was taking my 16 yr old daughter on her first. Couldn’t have asked for a better first raft trip for her. The guide was friendly and funny and kept our whole group involved.

This was one of the best experiences of our Canadian Rockies vacation. The company and staff were pleasant to deal with and right on time. The rafting was fun and exhilarating! I would highly recommend Whitewater Rafting on the Fraser River with this company.

My wife and 14 year old daughter have never been rafting and were a little dubious when they saw that I'd booked the top graded rafting trip 3. Once in the river they saw that anything less would have seemed pretty tame as most of the rapids are 2 with a few 3s. Had a great time, very professional and safe outift. At no time was there any chance anyone would fall out and all safety gear and briefings provided. We rotated through the boat during the trip and jumped in for a swim near the end. The portage section was absolutely fine as well. If you want to see photos of recent trips before deciding to book or not, go to their website and choose a date and time to see what the rafters experienced. Highly recommended.
