Ever wonder what the guides do for fun? This is the ultimate rush, traveling down the Kicking Horse, one of North America’s most exciting whitewater rivers. The 13ft “Maravia Spider” gives us the ability to maximize every river feature. With a minimum of 1 and a maximum of 5 people at a time the Extreme Whitewater will give you the challenges you’ve been waiting for. The trip starts off in the calmer, slower sections of the upper canyon giving you a chance to learn and practice safety and self-rescue techniques. Rafters must demonstrate they can mentally and physically meet the demands of the rapids to come.
- Offensive/Defensive Swimming Techniques
- Entering/Exiting Raft
- Throw Bags
- Recognizing river features
- Flip drills and scenarios
- Rescue and self-rescue techniques.
Extreme Rafters must be fit, able to swim and have prior rafting experience on the Kicking Horse River. Trips may include all or some of the above. Some of these exercises are dependent upon water levels, weather, guides discretion and other situational factors.
