What you can expect

DAY 1
Meeting time is at 12:00 PM at the Executive Suites Hotel & Resort rafting base where free overnight parking is available for all rafters. Pre-departure time will be spent packing and receiving gear and instructions and signing release of liability waiver. You will meet your trip leader and have an orientation talk regarding the equipment and safety. Transportation to the river is provided so once the group is ready you will pile into the bus and begin your adventure!

Take the route conquered by the Wet & Wild Elaho Exhilarator rafters where your courage will be tested as you travel through the infamous “Devil’s Elbow” section, followed by the mighty Cheeseball rapids. Showcase your sense of balance in some amusing challenges and games before facing the crashing waves of the Steamroller and a one-two punch combination from the Mike Tyson rapids. Your journey will then continue for a few more kilometers down river until you reach a remote wilderness camp area. Feel the magic as you step off your boat and take in the majestic setting where snacks and refreshments await. Spend the evening at the campsite, complete with a sandy beach, a scrumptious salmon dinner, fresh made dessert and stunning views around the campfire.

DAY 2
Awake to the sound of the river, the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and a delicious breakfast. Marvel at nature’s powers and many wonders which help you disconnect from the city which lies only an hour away! Back on board, enjoy a serene and gentler float down the calm waters of the Squamish River while admiring the spectacular sights the river valley has to offer. At the end of your trip, you will have the option to capture lasting memories of your adventure by purchasing a photo or video media package to show your friends and family!
