  • Kumsheen’s River Navigation Courses have been designed to enhance the knowledge of river safety & dynamics in anglers of all skill levels. Some of the topics you will learn are: river features & terminology, hazards, and navigating. We have selected the Thompson River for Level 1, and the Nicola River for Level 2.

    Your hosts will be Braden Fandrich & Darren Wagner. Both have been rafting & kayaking for their entire lives, bringing over 25 years of commercial rafting experience with them. They have taught a variety of white water skills to numerous groups over the past 15 years, making them the perfect fit for this course.
