This is an awesome place to do. They have professionals taking you on a boat ride that you will never forget! They have knowledge of the area and the fish. You can take a rod and fish along or they provide you with one. The people are friendly and provide a safe boat ride

John and his family are awesome! Had some friends in from the lowers and used Float-n-Fish b/c we randomly found it online and they had openings. Turns out it was meant to be. From the 1st time I spoke with Heather on the phone, I knew we were going to be treated well. They were awesome in accommodating and being... More

Kenai Float-n-Fish is a small, family-owned and operated guide service on the Upper Kenai River. We took a half-day fishing trip with John in late August and came away with memories to last a lifetime! My husband, our daughter and I were definitely beginners, and we found John patient and encouraging. He provided excellent fishing instruction as well as lots... More

Cooper Landing is full of fishing guides, this one is different from all the others. We (family with 2 small children) were complete novices and had a wonderful experience. No need to bring any gear. We released all our fish except one huge salmon (caught by my son) who served as dinner for the next 2 days.

I lived in Alaska for 20 years and brought my family back this summer. This was one of the best parts of the trip. John is incredibly passionate about fishing and was a great teacher to all of us. The gear was top-of-the-line (kept us dry even though it was POURING rain!) and his expert guidance caused us to catch... More

Our family of five, including three boys ages 9, 12 and 15, all had a blast on our half-day fishing trip with John on the beautiful Kenai River. He provided all the necessary equipment, waders, etc. and a GREAT sense of humor and patient instruction for all of us, even the most novice. I booked with him because of the... More

John was both an experienced guide and cheerful guy who is doing what he loves. We caught Dolly Vardens, Rainbows, and then waded in for Sockeyes (3 caught, 2 fileted, by John, and eaten). Expect a great time, they provide all equipment.

If you find yourself in the Cooper Landing/Seward AK area and want a fun and productive day (or half-day) fishing on the Kenai River, call John and Heather 1-855-595-3505. They operate Float & Fish out of Cooper Landing. John is an excellent guide and you will have the opportunity to fish from the boat as well as fishing by wading.... More

John and family, you are the best! We had such a great time floating down the beautiful Kenai and actually catching fish! Loved John's contagious enthusiasm for both fishing and the Kenai! These folks are the real deal, they won't let you down, you'll have a GREAT time! Thanks for the memories!

John, I can't thank you enough for talking my wife into fishing.She had told me that she only wanted to take pictures of me while I fished with you for those monster trout in the Kenai. I don't know everything you said but you convinced her to give it a try since I had bought her a license just in... More
