    Stop At: Squamish Rafting Company, 40446 Government Rd, Squamish, BC V8B 0P9, Canada

    Transport from Squamish and Whistler are provided free of charge. If you would like transport from Vancouver, it can be arranged for $35.

    The tour begins at our raft base at 8:45am where you will check in and fill out our paperwork. 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 put in, 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 be loaded 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 professional photos taken throughout the day.
