CHILLIWACK RIVER RAFTING IS OPEN YEAR-ROUND. If you have a rafting group of at least four, or a kayaking group of at least two, we have a trip for you! Call now and our friendly sales staff help you get the trip you’re looking for.
WHITEWATER IS AVAILABLE YEAR ROUND. Which trips are available is water level dependent, and predicting water levels is tricky business. We will give you our best prediction of what mother nature has in store for us this season. Call us for real-time information on our trips.

During the summer we feature daily departures, making it easy for smaller numbers to add on to existing trips. July and August weekends are in high demand, so groups should book their seats early to make sure they get the trip they’re looking for!
