The Family-Friendly Cheakamus Splash. Beware of the Splash Monster!

If you’re looking for a unique outing with your kids that will have everyone smiling (including you!), our family-friendly Cheakamus Splash near Vancouver has it all. It’s classic enviro-friendly activity in the great outdoors for families, children, seniors, and anyone looking for a gentle and fun scenic daytime adventure.

Your guide will ensure your family has everything you need for an amazing day together on the river. We’ll greet you when you first arrive, explaining how the day will work and answering any questions. Our guides are the most complimented part of our company. They all take great pride in ensuring your experience is everything you wanted and more.

Our rafts, equipment and gear are top-of-the-line and rigorously maintained. Rest assured knowing that we use only the best and most reliable equipment.

Once riverside, tighten your lifejacket, fasten your helmet and allow the fun to begin. Whether you enjoy quiet moments of floating on a calm stretch of river or bouncing through splashy Class 2 rapids, true family time has arrived!

Soak in lots of small splashy rapids, then marvel at your surroundings with a variety of birds, wildlife, waterfalls, and the towering peaks of the Coast Mountains in British Columbia.

But don’t stare at the scenery for too long. Keep an eye out for the infamous Cheakamus Splash Monster! It’ll strike when you least expect it, and often kick starts an epic water fight. And on a hot summer’s day there’s nothing more refreshing. Want to cool off even more? Take a quick dip in the purest, cleanest, jade-tinted water anywhere on the planet.

After your river adventure we’ll take you to our breathtaking rafting resort where you’ll be able to change out of our rafting gear and into your own clothes. Relax by the fire, play a game of volleyball and share a few laughs watching the great photos out photographer captured of you on the river. Want to take home the photos from the day or hi-def GoPro video footage? We’ve got that too.

Put away the phones and reconnect as a family. The Cheakamus Splash is a ton of fun for the whole family!

Did the Cheakamus Splash this past weekend with 3 small kids and was blown away! Our guide Andraz was very professional and kept us laughing the whole time. We all enjoyed a few exciting rapids, a nice swim and breathtaking scenery. It’s an awesome family adventure! – expatmom2015
