Had a wonderful River Rafting Trip with my daughter and a friend. Got soaked but stayed warm with all the wet suit protection. Great hot chocolate on the boat.

If you're a group of guys, go with Pinche. I've done white watering before but this has been the most memorable one for sure. He not only was entertaining but we certainly did a more challenging route which made it all the better. Thanks Pinche....More

Response from SquamishRafter | Property representative |
Hi Jordan, You do not need a license to join one of our tours. Our guide staff are licensed by the British Columbia Raft Outfitters Association. Yes groups from as small as 1 and up to 100 can book a tour. Hope that helps!
