For family rafting, the West is the best. The West Glacial River is classed 2-3. All of our trips start and end from our onsite boathouse. Our friendly and professional guides will provide you with all of the equipment needed for tackling our famous glacial rivers. We provide wetsuits, dry tops, helmets, buoyancy aids /life jackets, and rafting booties. All you need to bring is your swimsuit, a warm long sleeve fleece, and a towel. Optional extras are a sense of humor and adventure!
