“By far the best choice!”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

Fraser River Raft was our first choice as they were recommended to us by both friends and family. If you are looking for a professional, safe, welcoming experience than look no further. The guides were professional and engaging, the trip down the river was life changing and everyone left more than satisfied. Missing my time on the river already!

“Thanks to Fraser River Rafting, white water rafting is my new favorite sport!"”
Reviewed 22 September 2011

Our group of three adults took the 1 day Thompson River tour on the powered raft. The guides were friendly and knowledgeable, giving us a thorough safety orientation before handing out gear all around and helping us into the raft. The shore lunch was excellent. One of their staff took pictures of us on the river and we were very happy to purchase them already loaded onto a stick at the end of the day (and the pictures were great -- you can see that we were enjoying ourselves from the smiles on our faces!). The scenery from the river was stunning and the rapids were a blast. I look forward to trying some of their other rafting trips. We stayed at Teague House bed and breakfast for two nights and rafted the day inbetween which was a perfect combination. Great breakfast and beautifully furnished with antiques. The whole experience, from start to finish, was a highlight of our summer and one that we will always remember!

“Multi-Day River Trip with the BEST company!”
Reviewed 7 September 2011

We went on a 3 day, 2 night trip on the Thompson and Fraser rivers, and our raft guides were Lisa and Simon (both from New Zealand). Owners, Sue & Darwin, scheduled this trip after receiving my inquiry about a 3 day trip in September (since I didn't see any listed on their website). If the other 2 people hadn't booked at the last minute, the 3 of us would have been the only ones on the trip. This tells you how accommodating they are! Lisa & Simon cooked fabulous meals and regaled us with hilarious stories and local history. We felt safe at all times, but also were thrilled with the power of the river & its whitewater. The last day, on the Fraser, we switched to motorized rafts and were joined by a group of 30+ who were only doing the 1-day Fraser River trip. Motorized rafts are the way to go on the Fraser, as one would never be able to paddle a raft through all those swirlies. Big thank you's to Lisa, Simon, Sue and Darwin.

“River Rafting in Canada”
Reviewed 21 July 2007

What a rush! What scenery! What a fantastic thing to do, even for a scaredy cat like me. My husband and I went on a Fraser River Rafting Expedition, up the Nahatlatch River. The river was high and we were nervous. Quite a few of our fellow rafters seemed a bit too keen for some exciting action - we were hoping for something quite sedate. We have never rafted before but the guides spent a lot of time going through the safety procedures and we spent some time in a lake practicing before we headed out down the river. Well, this rafting trip turned out to be one of the highlights of our month long trip. We went down the section of the river twice, with a fantastic lunch inbetween the runs. The second time, everyone was really confident and we were taken through some bigger rapid options. We all managed to stay on board our rafts and we would now definately go again! The guides were great and the photographer captured some wicked action shots of us, which we were able to purchase on CD after the trip. A huge thumbs up for Fraser River Rafting!
