Whitewater River Rafting @ Chilliwack River (Chilliwack)

  • July 1, 2009 · 10:00 AM
  • Major League II
Anyone interested in a repeat of last year's fabulous Canada Day day-trip for whitewater rafting on the Chilliwack River? Cost is $109 per person (plus 10% taxes), and must be paid in advance. No refunds within 21 days prior to trip. We can arrange rides (my truck carries up to five people), and/or the rafting company will pick up at any downtown Vancouver hotel for an additional $45. PAYMENT: Hyak has set up a special web page for Social Butterflies for this trip so you can pay them directly, but still be part of our "group" for the trip (a lot simpler than last year, trust me): (email organizer for the payment link) There is no minimum number of people, and I will happily go ahead with the trip as long as there is at least one other person going. http://www.hyak.com/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ "Fed by the melting snow pack of Mount Baker, the Chilliwack River is at its best from May through July and is an exhilarating day trip. Hyak offers the longest rafting trip available, 18 km (12 miles) including the Tamahi, Sawmill and Swamp rapids. Trip includes 4 ½ hours of rafting, riverside buffet lunch, wetsuits and changing facilities with hot showers." <<<<<>>>> Things to bring: On the River: Bathing suit and/or nylon shorts (no cotton or jean shorts) Footwear for on the river that won?t come off: i.e. water sandals with heel strap, old runners (no flip-flops!) Rain jacket/windbreaker, preferably waterproof (VERY IMPORTANT!); bring it with you, if you don?t need it, leave it in your car. Polar fleece/wool sweater & wool socks (for cooler days) Medications, sunscreen (there is a small dry-bag on the raft for these items) After Rafting: Dry clothes & shoes Towel

    not too late, but definitely after dinner (we'll eat at the Major League pub where we parked - I guarantee we'll all be hungry again by then!) then drive back.

    Hi! Am wondering if you ladies have room for 2 more in your cars. We live in the downtown area, but can meet you at a Skytrain station if that makes things easier! Thanks much!

    Based on carpool comments so far, I will have Tracy, Keri & Sandi in my truck (can you all meet at Braid skytrain?) and I could take another person too. If Kathy's car also fills up and people still need rides, I can rent a minivan and we can split the cost of that, which would be about an extra $10 each. Is anyone else driving and could offer rides?

    Yes, the rafting office is located in the parking lot of the pub, so once we check in at the office they transport us for the rafting trip and bring us back there afterwards. They have an agreement with the pub to allow us to park there.

    Not quite obvious from the website/posting: the company will pick us up at the pub for free and return us there? can we leave our cars there?
    Thanks and looking forward!

    We will all meet up together at the Major League II pub in Chilliwack at 10am, for a 10:30 departure on the rafting bus. Carpooling will be arranged closer to the event date but please post rides needed/offered either in your RSVP or comments section. I will check my planner from last year, but I think we left Vancouver around 8:30am and that gave us time to stop for a quick bite of breakfast.
