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.

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

Every step of the experience was genuinely cared after under ARA. We were received and guided as guests and felt the entire time the outfitters were always willing to go out of process to help accommodate any request we had. The guides were extremely knowledgable of good spots, best bait, tangles, gear fixes and always ready to put in the... More

Booked a rafting trip down the Kenai River with this outfit. Basically a rubber bottom boat with seats. This river runs pretty quick and everyone had to be covered up due to the temperature of the water. We looked like Sumo wrestlers when all was said and done. Our guide was pretty quiet but did answer any questions we had... More

My B&B guest chose "ARA" for a quiet day We had an amazing river ride with Kenny. Tops in service, tops in safety, tops in great customer focus. He had enough local factoids to punctuate the conversation without being too chatty. Josie (our contact) made it easy to accommodate our needs, and the day yielded innumerable photos to capture the... More
