Canada paddling

Forums: 

Has anyone been paddling in British Columbia? Any advice on planning a season out there? Where's a good kayaking town? Where can I find work raft guiding or safety kayaking? Any help would be much appreciated, cheers

Different rivers come in at different times but generally july, august and sept are good months once flows have come down a bit. all depends on the snowpack. whistler/squamish region is a pretty good place to start and also has a few raft companies. If your into playboating, not much of that around whistler but definitely lots of creeking. Otherwise terrace region up north or somewhere central near the rockies although i havent paddled either of those so cant really comment. Here's a list of raft companies for each area http://www.bcadventure.com/adventure/rafting/adventures.htm
