Rafted with Tommy down the Kenai. He was great. Loved his passion for the water and outdoors. He was so knowledgeable, from the history, to the water, to the plants and animals. Thanks, Tommy for a trip we'll always remember!

In addition to all the wild adv... read more

We had a great guide on our river rafting trip. The smoke from the Swan Lake fire couldn’t be helped. The raft trip was very enjoyable.

It was the best time I've had on the kenai peninsula so far. I would definitely go again. I wanted the ride to last longer. And Aaron was the best captain. I'll be back next year. I love Alaska! 

Business response:

Thank you for your kind response. We look forward to seeing you again this coming year. We LOVE Alaska as well. Look forward to hearing from you again.
