Hell’s Gate Rafting Trip Details and Registration
Hell’s Gate 1-day raft trip: Boston Bar to Yale

Hold on to your hats! This day of heart-racing adventure is sure to get you soaked even on the sunniest of days. Take this one-day adventure to experience the mighty Fraser River and some of the largest commercially rafted white water in North America. Ride through the scenic Fraser Canyon in comfort and safety on large power rafts.
Enjoy the majestic views, wildlife and cultural history on this diverse and incredible waterway. Challenge the rapids at Scuzzy Rock, China Bar and more. Pause midway for a well-deserved rest after conquering the unforgettable rapids at Hell’s Gate. Enjoy a buffet lunch served on a secluded riverside beach where you can swim, hike or just relax in the sunshine. The grand finale is the roller coaster action of Sailor Bar Rapids, a chain of huge standing waves that we rerun several times.
What to expect: The trip is a power rafting trip, the rafts are large, stable and comfortable. The rapids splash, so you may get wet. The trip is suitable for ages 8 to 80 but it can be a long day for some.
