“I am a 53 year old bank manager, with two artificial hips, who had never been rafting before going out with Skeena Valley Expeditions. I quickly got over my apprehension because safety was obviously number one. I was so confident with the expertise of the guides that I even jumped into the river on purpose. The guides were hilarious. This trip and the subsequent one I took a few weeks later were the highlights of my summer.” - Rich Toomey
