This whitewater rafting trip takes you just north of Whistler Village to Green River, which provides the perfect combination of fun bouncy rapids and picturesque scenery for first-timers or for those on a family adventure. The Class 2 and 3 rapids you will encounter are sure to jostle your raft and challenge you to break through the white water. Paddling through the waves as a team will no doubt be a bonding experience you won’t soon forget!
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.
