George was very professional through the booking process when I made reservations 2 weeks prior to our visit. Once we arrived, we were outfitted with waterproof gear and the staff was very helpful. Our float guide, Neal, was very informative and friendly. We had absolutely perfect weather and saw several eagles (alas, no bears.:). Only wish we had more time... More

Our guide, Gary,was awesome! He worked so hard and genuinely wanted everyone to have a good time/ catch a fish. I could not get over how he rowed and maneuvered that boat. He was also very patient. I have fished only rarely in my life so I was a real novice to this. Gary showed me how to cast my... More

My buddy and I took our two sons to Alaska for their senior trip after graduating from High School. We had never been to Alaska but had always wanted to go and experience several different types of activities. George, the guides and his folks at Alaska River Adventures not only suggested great ideas, but executed our trip flawlessly. The communication... More

Owner George Heim gave me a realistic picture of my fishing options, and I appreciated that. The guide Gary however, left something to be desired. Along with his vaunted experience came much hubris, which clouded Gary’s judgment. Shortly after putting in, we witnessed a lot of action, seeing three salmon hauled in simultaneously by people fishing along the shore, as... More

It is always disappointing when you go out on a fishing trip and come home empty handed and I sympathize with Bill G and wish he'd had a better day with a bit more luck. Two of the other folks on the trip managed to get their limits of salmon so were very happy with the trip... the 4th person... More

Gary was the ideal guide. He effortlessly moved the raft through the water and we really enjoyed yarning to him about the history and wildlife of the area and his life experiences as we peacefully floated downstream. We saw lots of bird life on our afternoon float and evidence of animals but no sightings. The scenery and forest colours were... More

We were lucky and had a beautiful day for our float trip down the Kenai/Russian rivers. Our guide was great, we took lots of beautiful photos, saw lots of eagles and fishermen... only a teddy bear in the woods.

We had an absolutely wonderful time on the river with AK River Adventures. The weather was stellar, scenery stunning and Grace or guide a sweetheart. I had back surgery just a couple months earlier and hesitated about it being too rough for me. I was also afraid that being just a float trip it might seem boring. It was neither... More

After several days of intense hiking, this river float was a perfect way to unwind. Warm sunny day on beautiful river with great vistas. Our guide was a very engaging, knowledgeable young man. River offered a few small rapids to spice up the float....fun & relaxing!

Booked a last minute scenic float trip with Alaska River Adventures on our final day in Alaska. Trip was just the thing to cap off a wonderful vacation. Our guide Grace was terrific and I was extremely impressed with the way she handled the raft. We saw about 10 bald eagles on the trip. The river is just beautiful. Mild... More
