The busses will then be loaded and the ride to the river will take about a half hour. On the ride, you will be given a safety briefing and some information on the river. At the put in, as the guides get the rafts and gear ready, the driver will help you get suited up in your safety equipment- making sure it all fits properly. From there- it's time for some fun! Cruise along the Cheakamus River enjoying the beautiful Paradise Valley from a unique vantage point. There will be tons of laughter and excitement as you bounce through the rapids and moving water.

Once you reach the end of the river, the bus will be loaded and the driver will take you back to the base to dry off and change.
