Father's Day on the Kicking Horse

Father's Day on the Kicking Horse

Stuck on what to get dad for Father’s Day (June 18th, in case you forgot) this year? If a round of golf, tie, or barbecue tongs aren’t quite Pop’s speed, you might just win bonus points for coming up with a rafting adventure. Hydra River Guides offers a wide variety of trips and packages, designed to fit families and adventurers of all shapes, sizes, and levels. There’s no better way to spend some quality time unplugged with dad than by battling the rapids together, so read on to learn more about a few of our trips as well as things to keep in mind.

First things first

If this is will be your first time rafting, welcome! Hydra is well equipped to make sure all newcomers are comfortable on the water. There are, however, a few things you’ll want to make a note of before you come:

  • Make sure you pick the right trip for your family. If you’re planning on bringing little ones between the ages of 6-11, our Mild Trip is likely your best fit. You’ll get all the wonder of being on the water, but you’ll be able to get off before we hit choppier waters.
  • While Hydra will provide most of your essential gear (wetsuit, booties, life jackets, etc.), you’ll want to suit up in your bathing suit and bring a towel to dry off afterwards. You’ll also want to bring a bag for your personal belongings since technology and water don’t mix.
  • Make sure you’re on time! While we understand that “life happens” we maintain our commitment to our rafters by departing at the scheduled time each day.

Bringing the whole FamJam? You May Be Eligible For A Discount!

At Hydra, we’re all one big, wacky, happy family, so we love it when your family gets to hang with ours. If you’re looking to bring a group of 8 or more, give us a call, and we’re happy to assist you with creating a personalized quote for your adventure.

Get Ready To Get Wet And Have Fun

The beauty of rafting is that each and every trip is unique. The Kicking Horse River changes on a daily basis, so no two runs are the same. This means that you’re guaranteed a once in a lifetime trip that you and Dad will remember forever. Our trips give you the chance to connect while enjoying the great outdoors. We have dedicated photographers that take pictures on the river, meaning you and Dad can smile wide and take your memories home to show off!

No matter how you choose to celebrate Dad this year, Hydra River Guides wishes you a Happy Father’s Day! For more information on Hydra and our trips, you can check out our FAQ section, or contact us today.
