Departure Point

We are super easy to find – we are on the northeast side of the bridge at Milepost 238, Parks Highway. Plenty of parking. If you are arriving by train or motorcoach, we will contact you to arrange a meeting place and time.
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • Minimum numbers apply. There is a possibility of cancellation after confirmation if there are not enough passengers to meet requirements. In the event of this occurring, you will be offered an alternative or full refund.
  • Minimum age of 10 years old
  • All minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian
  • Everyone must sign a participant agreement, release, and acknowledgement of risk form. This is available on our website
  • What to Wear:
  • You should dress for the weather. Remember to wear long pants, long sleeves, at least 2 layers on the top, and socks.
  • Bring an extra pair of socks with you when you check in. When you take off your shoes to get dressed into your drysuit, you can put the extra pair of socks into your shoes, which will meet you at the end of the trip.
  • Remember, also, that everything you wear will go inside the drysuit, so it’s best not to wear a top layer that has a hood because hoods can be uncomfortable inside the drysuit. If it’s chilly, you may want to bring a hat. We launch our trips rain or shine; in fact, there’s nothing better to do at the Park when it’s raining than go rafting.

Wonderful White water Rafting
, Jul 2019
Our guide was very experienced and knew all about the river and the surrounding areas made the experience exciting and fun. The water was flowing fast with lots of waves to get splashed thanks for the memorable time in this beautiful Alaskan territory!!
Great Trip!

Great trip. The group of guides were great, funny, and interactive but making sure we all understood the safety brief. There were kids to people who had not even come close to this type of activity before and they were patient and made sure all were going to have a good time. Our guide Pat was professional and engaging and insured we hit all the right spots on the river. A good trip after a long day of sitting on a bus. They have a great bus driver who has his way about story telling. Worth the time and money.
