What a great experience! Wasn't too sure what to expect - I was amazed!! Loved the water, the rapids, the air time. I thought I might be feeling cold - not in the least! Everyone was so helpful, friendly, and I want to go back with my family next year!

I wasn't sure what to expect - white water rafting sounds a bit scary - It was so awesome!!! Our guide, Clarkie, was fun loving, skillful and he put me at ease right away. We paddled together like a well oiled machine, we laughed and smiled so broadly my face hurt. We got some real air time and the maximum... More

My wife and I (70's range) went down the tat and alsek rivers with 4 other travellers and 2 wakpa guides in 2013 and it was amazing from beginning to end. The guides were excellent on the water and in the kitchen! Food was top-rate and equipment too. The trip was challenging but never strenuous and an experience never to... More

We just came back from an excellent rafting experience for our entire company. Wakpa staff guided 15 of us down the Highwood River. The staff are professional, experienced and took care of our safety. Lunch was hot and delicious. The BBQ afterwards was excellent. Almost everyone in our group was a first-time rafter, and the staff ensured we were educated... More

Whitewater Rafting has been a desire for us for a long time and having won a trip with the company offered the opportunity. The guides were friendly from the get-go and made an effort to remember to know everyone's names that toured that day. Their knowledge of rafting and rafting safety was both top notch and very re-assuring to me.... More

Wakpa Wilderness Adventures impressed our whole group, which was comprised of 2 fathers and five teenage to twenty something children. All but 2 had rafted with commercial operations before. The atmosphere was relaxed, but professional when it came to safety. The rapids were beyond our expectations to the point where 3 of 4 rafts in the flotilla passed on one... More

I am always looking for a new whitewater rafting experience and stumbled across the highwood river and Wakpa by chance on the internet. I was looking to create a trip for my fellow staff members where I work and thought I would take a chance on this small company. I was hesitant at first because they were the only company... More

We took our high school senior class rafting with Ben and Dave. I am impressed with the level of service and professionalism of this company. The river was great and the food outstanding. We will be back next year!
