Canadian Outback Rafting Company

The ultimate full-day adventure. Whether you’re a thrill seeking adventure junkie or just trying to get away from the stress of everyday life and back to nature, the Wet & Wild Elaho Exhilarator has everything you’ll need to recharge your batteries. Your courage will be tested as you travel through the infamous “Devil’s Elbow” section of the rapids, as seen on TV’s famous Eco-Challenge Adventure Race.

What you can expect

Check in 15-30 minutes prior to your tour departure time at the rafting base - Executive Suites Hotel & Resort in Squamish. Here you will sign release of liability waiver, meet trip leader and have an orientation talk regarding the equipment. Change into your gear and jump on the bus which takes you to the river (approx 20 min) to the 'put in' point.

The talented team of professional river guides will teach you the skills necessary to ride big waves and catch air as you navigate down the Class 3-4 Elaho and Squamish Rivers. Your courage will be tested as you travel through the infamous “Devil’s Elbow” section of the rapids, as seen on TV’s famous Eco-Challenge Adventure Race. Depending on the water levels, you’ll also be able to swim through some small rapids and enjoy a few laughs as your crewmates scramble to stay on board.

Following your exciting rafting trip you'll bus back to the fully-equipped rafting base at the Executive Suites Hotel & Resort where you’ll be able to change back into your own clothes and enjoy the facilities at the resort including a full service restaurant and awesome fully-licensed outdoor patio area. Relax, check out the photos and GoPro videos shot on the trip, and enjoy the beautiful sunshine and comfort of the resort.
