Super fun trip. We floated the upper Kenai River, and were able to catch and release over a 100 rainbows and dollies. We also caught a few silvers along the way. The second day turned out to be the best day. We took a 45 minute float plane ride over to Silver Salmon Creek. We were fishing salmon with the... More

Had a good time. Our kids caught a few Dollies and Rainbows. Always good floating the Kenai and taking in the views from the river. Has been a family tradition for the past 35 years.

Great float down the Kenai River. Kids and adults both loved it. Saw a young brown bear along the way. Was the star of the show for kids from London.

we did a full day red (sockeye) trip on the kenai river. Guide advised us that it was between runs on the salmon but he worked hard and my wife and I both caught our limit and then we were treated to some rainbow trout and dolly varden float fishing and that was fun and successful too. We were catchin... More

It was a nice peaceful ride down the river, but if you are looking for exciting, this is not the trip. This is for a pleasant trip with your young children or older parents. The guide was very nice and knowledgeable

Staff at Alaska Adventures was great except our guide. In the five hours we spent on the river our poles were in the river for maybe 2 hours of it. We were supposed to be fishing for salmon (it was booked as salmon fishing) but the guide insisted on trout fishing. We stopped once to fish for salmon for 20... More

The trip for Kalie S did not go well and we wish there had been a different outcome. But her party was booked for a full day of salmon fishing with us and our guide Gary arrived at 7 AM since we expected Kalie’s group to check in at 7:30 and to be on the water fishing by 8 AM... More

My dad, sister and I had a really nice time during our float down the Kenai River. The water was so gorgeous- it was baby blue! Our guide was very nice and did a great job of navigating us down the river. We saw a bald eagle catch a salmon and eat it- a true Alaskan sight! We also saw... More
