Do I need to be able to swim to raft?
Although the ability to swim is an asset it’s not essential on the Green and Cheakamus rivers. Your rafting guide will go over all the safety information and teach you everything you need to know about your rafting adventure . However, if you would like to raft the Elaho-Squamish Rivers they would prefer you to be able to swim.

Do I have to be fit to go rafting?
The white water rafting tour provider takes people rafting of all sizes, shapes, and fitness levels. The Green River and Cheakamus Green Rivers are appropriate for everyone of all abilities. The Elaho-Squamish is a bigger river which requires  higher levels of exertion.
