Founded in 2009 by Ben Thackeray and Dave Pearson.
When you raft with Canadian Rafting Adventures you are rafting with Matt Clarkson, Dave Pearson and guides hand picked for their commitment to your safety and enjoyment. Matt and Dave have been rafting in Canada and around the world since 2004. In 2009 they met while rafting the the Bow Valley and decided to bring their experience together and deliver what they loved about the industry.
"Over the years i have seen the good and the bad in the rafting industry. I have worked for companies with poor standards who only care about the number of people on the river and I have worked for companies who had a great commitment to their standards. Dave and I figured it was time to create a company where the focus was 100% about the Experience." - Ben Thackeray

Several of our expeditions take you to a very special place known as the Sacred Headwaters. The sacred Headwaters is an undisturbed environment the size of England. It has great cultural, economic and environmental significance for the people that call the area home. It is under great threat of massive resource extraction that would destroy the integrity of the area.
At Canadian Rafting Adventures we are proud to support the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition. 5% of all trip sales on our Sacred Headwaters rivers will go directly to the Skeena Watershed Conservation Coalition to help their efforts in protecting the Sacred Headwaters.
