River rafting first timers

Hi, We are all booked now for a week in Vancouver at the beginning of June - crossing the days off now - can hardly wait! I´m trying now to plan our days out and activities. Has anyone got any tips/ advice/recommendations for river rafting day trips? We are not hiring a vehicle so would like to choose somewhere fairly close to vancouver that is accessable by public transport. Never done this before so not quite sure what to expect (and a little nervous!) I´ve looked at several BC websites operate this activity but not sure which trip would be most suited to someone that has no experience. Any tips or advice please?

Or look at combining with a day trip to Whistler. I did a rafting trip there years ago and it was great fun. btw I am a complete chicken so it wasn't very " wild" but a good time was had by all..;)

Thanks everyone for all the info, I´ve been looking at several websites. The idea of power rafting is a firm favourite at the moment.
