Do I need to be able to swim to raft?
Although the ability to swim is an asset it’s not essential on the Cheakamus and Green rivers. The BC rafting guides will go over all the safety info and will teach you everything you need to know about rafting with them. 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 Adventure Group takes people rafting of all shapes and sizes and of all fitness levels. The Cheakamus and Green River’s are appropriate for everyone of all abilities and the Elaho-Squamish is a bigger river which requires higher levels of exertion.
