What a Snowpack!

We are looking forward to rafting on the great water that will result from the amazing Vancouver Island snowpack this season! The season is fast approaching and some of the key weekends are already filling up. Check out the website for tour availability or e-mail us for a special tour for your group.

Puntledge Paddlefest Weekend

The 2010 Puntledge Paddlefest is scheduled for May 29 and 30. This is a once per year opportunity to raft the Puntledge River during flows of up to 130 cms (normal flows are in the 3 – 10 cms range). Controlled water flows that ramp up from Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon, lots of kayakers and a quick run down some big water close to home. Only $65 per person, no youth on this tour (14 years and 90 pounds minimum).

Government tax changes = Early booking savings!

The government is proceeding with the HST, a new combined federal and provincial tax that comes into effect for the 2010 season. We have been informed that if guests pay in full for their 2010 tours prior to May 1 they will not be subject to this tax increase, even if their tour is after July 1. All post July 1 tours paid for after May 1 will be subject to this additional 7% government tax. We would like to pass this saving along to our rafting friends – so if you are planning a tour in 2010 contact us to book before May 1!
