Do you provide wetsuits? Yes, and all of the gear is included in the price! Besides wetsuits, we also have wetsuit jackets, wind-resistant shells and wetsuit socks. All you need is a swimsuit or similar for under the wetsuit, and a pair of shoes that can get wet. For more details, see What You'll Be Wearing.
Will you have a wetsuit big (or small) enough? Almost certainly! The children's suits start at size 8. Adult suits go as large as 4XLarge in a extra-wide style. We haven't met anyone yet we couldn't fit in a wetsuit.
When is the best time to go? All the seasons bring their own special magic. High water is usually in late June and early July, so book this for the wildest rides. In Revelstoke, trips are offered in late June, July, August and early September. The water gets lower, and the time on the river gets longer as the summer goes by.
Do I have to book in advance? In Revelstoke many of our groups book just a day or two in advance. We can also take last minute bookings, but if you want to guarantee your seat, book in advance. Full payment is required to book seats. If a trips shows it's available online, you can book it!
Do you have to know how to swim? No. The PFD's (lifejackets) are designed to keep you head-up in a river. We teach you what to do if you fall out of the raft, how to get back in, and how to swim safely in the river - which is completely different than swimming in a pool or lake!
What are the minimum numbers for trips? For the 2016 season in Revelstoke, there will be no minimum number required. We will be on the river every day starting mid-July!
Do you have group rates? Yes. If you have a group of 6 or more, you get 5% off. If you have a group of 12 or more it's 10%. And, for a group of 18 or more it's 15%.
How old do you have to be? It depends on the trip, and the time of year. Most of our age guidelines are flexible.
Illecillewaet Rivers: ages 10+ (depending on water levels).
