School Trips

SAFETY IS #1

Safety is the #1 priority when planning our adventures. Hyak operates to the highest degree of safety standards. We employ the finest river guides in the world, all licensed and certified. Hyak is a member of the BC River Outfitter's Association. This combination gives us the most experience in safety and knowledge on the rivers we run.

All participants are required to wear helmets and lifejackets as well as undergo a 30 minute safety briefing. Wetsuits are supplied at no charge.

On the Chilliwack River and the Upper Thompson River, Hyak's paddle rafts are equipped with a rowing frame which allows the guide ultimate control while the students paddle and participate by helping to maneuver the raft down the river.

*Safety kayakers accompany all trips on the Chilliwack River.

On the Canyon section of the Lower Thompson River, we utilize our Power Rafts. These rafts are larger and more stable allowing the guide control of the raft with the power and security of an outboard motor. Our Power Rafts are the ultimate in safety while still allowing for the fun and exciting adventures of rafting!

CHAPERONES RAFT FOR FREE!

For every 10 paying students, chaperones will receive one free trip. School groups of 24 or more qualify for these great school package rates.

PICK YOUR DATE

To avoid disappointment reserve you date early. A $10 deposit per person will reserve that all important date for your group.
