South of Whistler Village in Paradise Valley, the Elaho-Squamish River provides thrill-seekers with the challenge they so crave from a whitewater rafting experience. The Class 3 and 4 rapids you will encounter on this TAG Whistler whitewater rafting adventure will pit the true power of nature up against your paddle crew. Enjoy both a river snack on your journey and a tasty BBQ lunch after your tour. Every aspect of this adventure, including the gorgeous drive to the river, will envelop your senses and allow you to gain even more appreciation for the wild wilderness of the Coast Mountains.
A bathing suit and towel is all that is required. Wedge Rafting BC provides complimentary farmer-john wetsuits, wetsuit jackets and
boots to keep you comfortable, rain or shine.
For the Green River, the minimum age and weight is 10 years old & 90 pounds. For the Cheakamus River, the minimum age and weight is 6 years old & 50 pounds. The Elaho-Squamish Rivers require a minimum age of
12 years old & 90 pounds.
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.
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.
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.
Only waterproof cameras should be brought on the rafts. Our highly trained photographer’s will be stationed riverside at some of the most exciting moments to capture your adventure. You’ll be able to find them for purchase at tagwhistlerphotos.ca.
A certain amount of strain and physical demands are placed on you while rafting.
The Elaho-Squamish River has a bumpy access road which could aggrevate pre-existing back injuries.
