Myth: Rafting is dangerous
While there is inherent risk in doing anything in a wilderness settings, there is nowhere on Earth with a safer rafting industry than here in B.C. Members of the BCROA adhere to industry leading standards that surpass government regulations. Ask any guide: they’re more concerned about their safety driving in city traffic than rafting on the river.
Myth: Rafting is expensive
There aren’t many guided outdoor activities that are as affordable as rafting – trips start at $99 for a half day. And the value is unmatched: excellent food, gear included, professional guides, shuttles and sometimes free photos from your adventure. Even multi-day expeditions are good value when you include the costs of charter flights and how much you save by not being able to spend a cent for two weeks.
The staff at Destiny River Adventures would like to wish you and yours all the best of the season. We hope that you have a happy, healthy and prosperous new year and look forward to seeing you again on the river!

The Destiny crew are growing moustaches as part of the Movember Canada prostate cancer awareness and fundraising campaign this month. If you purchase a gift certificate prior to November 30, 2011 we will donate 50% of the value to cancer research and you will get a charitable donation tax receipt in your name. If you would rather donate directly to the cause, please visit our Movember page at http://mobro.co/JimDeHart where you can donate on-line.
We had a great opportunity to host the Rick Mercer Report on our tour this past August. To view the official show from this visit please view http://youtu.be/_PX-H4Uid3w
With the La Nina forecasted again for this winter we expect a big snowpack – which will mean another excellent whitewater season for 2012. We will be offering tours again on the Puntledge River for Paddlefest weekend and Nimpkish tours from May to the end of July! Don’t forget – even if it is a cool spring we will have amazing water levels!
