River Guiding is one of the greatest jobs on earth with worldwide opportunity. It is a way of combining international employment with enjoyment and excitement in the outdoors. River Guiding presents challenges, requiring considerable skill and knowledge. It is an occupation that develops personal confidence, positive people skills and leadership ability.
Each year Chinook Rafting trains several new guides as a way of introducing them into the industry and lifestyle. Many of our valued staff members are prior graduates of this program and have gone on to work on rivers around the world.
Students also join the Guide’s course with no interest in becoming commercial guides, but do so for the fun, adventure and learning. Some go on to enjoy whitewater rafting as a personal hobby.
