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.
