Founded in 2009 by Ben Thackeray and Dave Pearson with help from friend Matt Clarkson, and taken under the umbrella of Canadian Outback Rafting Company by Graham Young in 2017, Canadian Rafting Adventures puts the guest experience as its top priority and maintains its solid foundation and core values.
When you join a trip with Canadian Rafting Adventures, you are rafting with guides hand picked for their commitment to your safety and enjoyment. Graham and Matt have been rafting in Canada and around the world since 2004. Friends with Ben and Matt since 2007 while rafting on the Tully River, Graham shares the same core values and ideals upon which Canadian Rafting Adventures was built.
"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
At Canadian Rafting Adventures we know you have many choices when it comes to river trips and tour operators. So why should you choose Canadian Rafting Adventures?
Canadian Rafting Adventures is a small locally owned rafting company, this means 3 important things:
- The owners still guide on the rivers, and are involved in the daily operations. That's how you know you are getting the best customer service.
- You wont get lost in the crowd. Our expedition trip sizes are small and we plan on keeping them that way.
- Our guides are everything to our business. We look after our guides, so that they look after you (which they do exceptionally well)!
At Canadian Rafting Adventures we meet or exceed industry standard. We are fully insured and certified to lead your trip. Our gear is in top shape, that's not just the rafts but the rafting gear you receive as well. Our gear is washed and disinfected every time it is used, you will never get dirty gear at Canadian Rafting Adventures.
