Rafter Comments

"We had the BEST time ever on your Cheakamus Splash rafting adventure. The weather was perfect, and the guides were awesome. Nobody wanted the adventure to end!"

"The girls had an experience they will always remember and us leaders will highly recommend your company to all friends, family and other Girl Guide units."

"I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful rafting trip! It would seem that everyone, myself included, walked away VERY satisfied. There's talk that they want to do this again. I think you'll be seeing us again. One of my co-workers told me that this was the most fun he'd ever had on a company outing. That pretty much says it all."
