Keeping Rafting Safe

River travel in BC is often thought of as a high risk activity. BCROA companies ensure that all guides employed by them are trained and certified to BCROA standards to make your rafting experience safe and enjoyable.

Most outdoor adventure activities have some level of risk associated when participating in them. BCROA members will ensure you are made aware of these prior to your departure and provide basic orientation and training to make your rafting experience safe and enjoyable.

This way your experience is memorable and you’ll have peace of mind while out on the water. However, we understand that there are a few misconceptions about the activity.
