About Us

Welcome to the Squamish Rafting Company!

Squamish Rafting Co. was established in 2016 with the aim of sharing our passion for rafting and nature with as many people as possible. We have rafted all around the world, but Squamish is our home and we love helping people experience its magnificent rivers and wild beauty.

We make sure everyone who joins us has a really fun, safe, and memorable trip. All of our guides have years of experience and are licensed and certified, and each trip is accompanied by guides trained in swift water rescue and first aid. We provide all the safety gear and instruction you will need to feel comfortable and have fun.

We look forward to seeing you out on the river!
