Catch A Wave ~ Family Rafting

Finally …. A BC Family Rafting Adventure designed for kids as young as 7 years old.

With 37 years of rafting experience in Wells Gray Park, Interior Whitewater offers you our always popular "Catch A Wave" trip. A trip that children as young as 7 can enjoy, "Catch A Wave" is much more than just another family outing.  We’ve been told time and time again from parents that this trip was one of the most rewarding experiences their kids have ever had.

Gone are electronic gadgets, chores, and schedules. Our "Catch A Wave" trip makes everyone feel like they are part of a team, all working together to achieve a common goal.  Our safety conscious and informative guides will do their utmost to teach a little bit about the natural history and geology of the area as well as find time to go for a hike to a breathtaking waterfall or explore some old growth forest. The splashy whitewater we raft is at the perfect level of excitement to satisfy those more adventurous while bringing even the most hesitant young rafters into the fun!

Family Rafting on the Clearwater River, BC   On our "Catch a Wave" trip, your family will get a taste of whitewater action on the Clearwater River.  You will raft through plenty of exciting Class II rapids, perfect for younger kids looking for an adventure. A higlight of the trip is the short hike up to kid-sized waterfall where parents and children alike have a blast jumping through the falls and into the natural pool below. 

"Catch A Wave" is a unique experience whether you’re 8 years old, a teen, or an adult. It is a way to bond for parents and children, brothers and sisters, grandparents and grandchildren. But don’t just take our word for it, come and experience a family outing like no other from the best seat in the house—aboard one of our rafts on the "Catch A Wave" trip this summer.

IWE has strong safety policies regarding all trips. We have a minimum of two guides on every "Catch A Wave" even with as few as four guests. We stay away from the big rapids of the Clearwater River and operate the "Catch A Wave" trip on a section of river that is class two only. We start in late July when the levels have receded and the water and air temperatures have warmed up.  All participants are outfitted with a 3mm wetsuit for warmth as well as a fleece pullover, splash jacket, lifejacket, and helmet.
