Oyster River White Water Rafting Trips
River Oyster serves as a great introduction to the world of adventures for rafters, especially starters, of every age. For school children or young groups who plan to spend one half of the day in rafting, River Oyster is absolutely the best option. The river is merely 20 minutes away from the town and can be explored by novice rafters as well.
Providing Class II waters, River Oyster makes space for all paddle-trip enthusiasts. A small stream flowing northwest from Pearl Lake, Oyster River crosses the famous Highway 19 in its source. As it passes Highway 19 halfway, it travels between Campbell and Courtenay River. These rivers pass from the Oyster Bay, or else the Duncan Bay taking down the mainline from Courtney. In the lower side of the river, up to 9 km the river can be accessed through a car via the Highway 19. Certain associated roads such as Glenmore, Saratoga and McCaulay roads pass over the river.
To reach the upper end of the river, you can opt for the Iron and York River roads. For beginner rafters, the river remains in its best conditions during May and June and at times, even during early July. Other than providing exceptional rapids for novice rafters; the river acts as a haven for interested fishers as well. It is quite notable for its fishery at the lower end of the river. The most popular catches are winter steelhead and salmon, especially in the spring. During August, Pink salmon is found in abundance alongside the beach. An adventure on a River Oyster is sure to surprise you with its abundant scenic beauty and especially, with the vast quantity of varied fishes.
