We have just returned from our Alaskan vacation and wanted to share our experience with Alaska River Adventures (ARA). The first portion of our trip, was a cruise of the inside passage that originated in Vancouver. While fishing excursions were available, we opted to wait until the cruise was over to allow us to put together a land package. After... More

All of the Alaska River Adventures (ARA) Team treated us well from the moment we arrived. We opted for this ride because it left at 2pm (there is also a 3 hr float tour before and after this time slot). It was a cloudy-ish day but we actually got hot on the river with all of the rain gear supplied... More

This 3 hour float trip down the awesome Kenai River is a must for Alaska visitors. You get to see up close the magnificent scenery, wildlife (saw 2 bears and 4 eagles) and many, many fishermen trying to hook the elusive Alaska Salmon. Our tour guide and pilot "Nutty" was wonderful

We did the 3-hour upper kenai scenic float trip, using a Tour Saver Coupon. After getting thoroughly suited up in case of a disaster (which apparently never happens, thank goodness), we headed out for a calm float trip on the Kenai River. The guide pointed out birds and buildings or river features of local significance while he paddled and the... More

Our family went fishing with Gary in early July. We started at their office and were outfitted with nice waders for all and floatation vests for our girls (10 and 12yrs old). We drove to a lake that connected to the Kenai River where the fish were. It was early in the Sockeye run. We are not experienced at fishing.... More

I've taken at least a half a dozen or more trips with Alaska River Adventures over the past four years. In many cases I have brought friends along because I am confident that there is a high probability that they will enjoy an excellent day of salmon and trout fishing. Although on one trip I didn't get to keep any... More

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
