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. Trips run in June, July, August and early September. High water is usually in late June and early July, so book then for the wildest rides. The water gets lower, and time on the river gets longer as the summer goes by.
Do I have to book in advance? Many groups book just a day or two in advance. We can take last minute bookings, but book ahead to guarantee your seat. Full payment is required when booking. If a trip has open spots online, and you have a credit card, 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? There's no minimum number required to book a trip! We will join you up with other adventure-seekers to get you out on the river! We can only take 16 people at once, though, so book in advance if you can!
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 water levels! The Illecillewaet River is usually suitable for ages 10+, but depending on your experience, we can be flexible. Please call us to ask! toll free 1-877-945-3786
