faq_Rescue

Do I need to be able to swim to raft?

Although the ability to swim is an asset it’s not essential on the Cheakamus and Green rivers. The BC rafting guides will go over all the safety info and will teach you everything you need to know about rafting with us. However if you would like to raft the Elaho-Squamish Rivers we would prefer you to be able to swim.

 
 

Are there changing facilities?

We have a change room in Whistler for our local rivers as well as a change facility in the Paradise Valley for all Cheakamus & Elaho excursions.

Do I have to be fit to go rafting?

We take people rafting of all shapes and sizes and of all fitness
levels. The Cheakamus and Green River’s are appropriate for
everyone of all abilities and the Elaho-Squamish is a bigger
river which requires higher levels of exertion.

Can I bring a camera?

Only waterproof cameras should be brought on the rafts. We photograph all rafts as they head through the rapids for your convenience and enjoyment. Photo packages are offered for FREE for all guests, you just need to supply an email address for them to be emailed to you.
 
 
 
 

 
 

Rafting is not recommended to anyone with back injuries

 

A certain amount of strain and physical demands are placed on you while rafting.
