Due to low water levels, our operations on the Chilliwack River have now closed for the season. We would like to thank everyone who came out to enjoy the thrills of the Chilliwack River. HYAK rafting trips on the Chilliwack River will start up again in May of 2015. But even though the Chilliwack levels have dropped too low, let us remind you that we will continue running trips on the Thompson River up until the end of September. The Thompson has never been better, as its water levels are currently proving to be some of the best white water in the entire Pacific Northwest! AND it just keeps getting better, for August and Sept it looks like water levels will be the best they have in years. Come out and challenge "The Frog", "The Cutting Board" and the famous "Jaws of Death"! See you on the Thompson River!


Located in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, the fast paced Chilliwack River offers exciting rafting from May through July.

Considered to be one of the best rivers near Vancouver, the Chilliwack is the perfect day trip. Nestled amongst the mountains of the North Cascades, the Chilliwack drops 10 meters per kilometer, creating numerous long and continuous rapids. Easily accessible and only one hour from the city, the Chilliwack is highlighted by the Tamahi rapids, where training takes place for the Canadian national kayak team.

Fed by the melting snow pack of Mount Baker, the Chilliwack River is at its best from May through July and is an exhilarating day trip.
