3 hours - $125 adult, $115 youth, taxes included.
This 3 hour tour is unique to the Campbell River. Each year thousands of salmon return to the river from which they started. The crystal clear water allows for easy viewing of the salmon in the river environment from the raft - or you can don a wetsuit and participate in one of the most unique experiences by snorkeling in the river pools teeming with thousands of salmon.
All five species of Pacific salmon can be found here over the course of the run, starting with pinks in late July. Then chinook, coho, and sockeye arrive through August and September with the chum salmon the last arrivals of the season. If you are lucky you may even see a steelhead or cutthroat trout holding in one of the pools. Rafters have also seen black bear, deer, beaver, weasel, eagles, mergansers, kingfishers, seals and other wildlife on this family tour.
Times: DAILY 9 AM, 1 PM, and with a GROUP OF 6 OR MORE PEOPLE YOU CAN CHOOSE A 5PM TOUR. RESERVATIONS REQUIRED.
Season: July 19, 2014 until end of September. Prime salmon snorkeling season begins in August.
