Family Friendly Cheakamus Splash

Reconnect with your family, friends and the great outdoors during a scenic Cheakamus Splash rafting trip with Canadian Outback Rafting. With fun splashy rapids and some of British Columbia’s most breathtaking scenery, everyone in your family will have a great time and make memories you’ll cherish together forever.

“Amazing family experience yesterday on the Cheakamus River with Canadian Outback Rafting! I was nervous taking my 5 and 7 year old out river rafting but my mind was quickly at ease once I saw their smiles and saw the river wasn’t as wild as I’d envisioned. Staff were great and real pros. The experience was fun for all. I can’t wait to bring my kids back and make this a new family tradition. I highly recommend!” ~ Wendy D

Rediscover your sense of adventure!

The Family-Friendly Cheakamus Splash rafting trip is a half-day fun float trip that features small splashy rapids, outstanding scenery and lots of laughs. It’s an ideal outdoor activity for families, children, seniors, and anyone looking for a gentle and fun scenic rafting adventure.

As you raft down the glacier-fed Cheakamus River between old growth forests, you’ll experience the excitement of gentle rapids and see a variety of birds, wildlife, waterfalls, and the towering peaks of the Coast Mountains in British Columbia. At the same time you’ll learn about the intriguing Squamish First Nations history, a key part of the history of the area.

Of course anytime kids get around water, you know there will be a water fight!  Perfect the art of splashing others (you never know when the Splash Monster will rise out of the river!), and get a chance to cool off with a quick dip in the pure, glacier-fed, jade-tinted water.

This summer get out on the river … the Cheakamus Splash is a ton of fun for the whole family!

“We took our 5 year old son on the family float trip down the Cheakamus Splash which was fantastic. The guides were knowledgeable, engaging and fun. It was a great day on the river and I highly recommend to anyone wanting a great kid friendly adventure in beautiful Squamish!” ~ campingCJ
