We booked our trip 9 months in advance on the Fraser River. Jim and his crew plus the TripAdvisor reviews made us feel that this is a stellar group to raft with. My mistake not looking at how long the Fraser River is (longest in British Columbia). When I touched base with Jim at Stellar Descents a month before our... More

Been rafting at Stellar many time and many more to come! The river is a ton of fun and the guides are great. Can't wait to book my trip this summer!

We booked to take our family on a white water rafting ride down the Fraser for the first time. After a bit of a mix up and rocky start, Stellar Descents went above and beyond to make up for any inconvenience we experienced and went on to give us an amazing trip down the Fraser River. Our ages ranged from... More

We did the white water rafting trip (grade 3) with our two teenage sons on Aug 12. We were on a two week road trip through the Rockies before going to the States. The team of Jimmy,Tyler and Christina were excellent instructors and their safety procedures and ensuring that we understood them were exemplary. Separate changing tents are provided for... More

Just got back from Fraser river rafting trip. Thunder storm added to the intensity. The preparation and instruction were great. Nice breaks between the white water to look at the landscape. And some fine team work paddling. Really enjoyed the chance for a brief swim. Was grateful for warm clothes when we got back. Thanks Jimmy, Tye and Christina.

Ten of us (with three guides (Tyler, Ben and Simon)) just finished Stellar’s multiday descent down the Babine River, finishing in the Skeena. This was a five day, on the water, adventure of absolute amazement. Stellar Descents fully lived up their name providing an absolutely stellar descent down. The trip was well thought out and planned. Meals were campsite gourmet... More

Amazing river and countryside. The staff here are very confident, competent professionals full of knowledge and spunk that made this fun for families and individuals. Highly recommend stellar descents for their staff and the safe enjoyable service they provide.

This is a great organisation with enthusiastic, friendly staff. We had a wonderful time on the Fraser. The short-ish, three-hour trip which we chose to do was perfect for us (and there's a great buffet restaurant next door for winding down afterwards). Really lots of fun.

We made a scenic floating trip in the evening, because we wanted to see the wildlife. It was nice and slow, so we could do a lot of great photos. Christina, our guide, had a great sense of humour and knowledge about the nature. She also cared very well about our safety and comfort the whole time. It was a... More
