      First time rafters
      I was lukewarm to whitewater rafting with the family, but Chugach made it a great experience. It’s a lot to take in, but they stepped us through it and I really enjoyed the rapids and the scenery. James had some amazing skills as a boat captain which was MUCH appreciated!

      Most amazing whitewater adventure!
      This was the most spectacular whitewater rafting I have done! Our guide James was a rock star and a lot of fun! The views are amazing and the rapids are awesome! The canyons get progressively more technical. So glad my crew did the third canyon! It was an awesome experience! I would do it again in a heartbeat!

      A must do in Alaska if you're up for adventure in the last frontier. This is Alaska.
      Great informative team who gave clear instructions. This was the best rafting trip I've been on. All the employees were well experienced and their demeanor and ability to keep it fun and safe was reassuring. Our guide James was surgical with the rapids. Highly highly highly recommend this raft company! You cant go wrong with them.

      Great trip...even for someone with no experience.
      Amazing experience and probably, dollar for dollar, my favorite excursion yet...and I've done most. You must do the three canyon trip. Absolutely thrilling. Don't be scared. The guides are very professional and you are in good hands. I tip my hat to James, our guide. While some seem to have an attitude and almost lecture you like a child at any miststep, James was the perfect guide. He showed patience as well as knowledge, all the while showing you respect as a paying customer. Couldn't be more professional. Ok...the swim. It's tough...no doubt. You have to swim across a swift river in 40 deg water with a dry suit, then float downstream about 100 yards and then get dragged onto a raft by your collar. Then...you have to pull someone else out of the water by their collar. I'm 58 and in good shape and I was breathing very hard by the time I hit the raft. All though I completely why this test is necessary, they never mentioned this when I signed up. Even though I still would have done it, they should be clear about the difficulty of this to everyone before taking your money. Anyway...the bottom line is that it was a first class excursion and I would gladly recommend them to anyone looking for a WW trip.

      Intense Thrills!
      We had a large party of 11 people do 6 mile creek rafting through all 3 canyons. Our experience was amazing, definitely the highlight of our trip. Our guides were very experienced, fun, and made us feel very safe. There were also extensive safety instructions, helping us to feel more prepared for the class five rapids. Highly recommend for anyone seeking adventure.

      Loads of fun, not for the faint of heart
      We did the three canyon run. Not our fist time white water rafting but definately the most challenging and most difficult. Safety is a prime concern. There was just enough calm water between the rapids to make it a very pleasant trip, and always something just around the bend.

      Would do it again in a heartbeat
      Fantastic experience! We have only done a little white water rafting, but we had a fantastic guide and so many safety measures in place that we always felt safe. It was exciting and so fun. And the scenery is just gorgeous, too. I also appreciate that the shuttle rides were 15 minutes or less, both ways. Definitely wear the thermals that they recommend, and we popped into the hot tub after for a great finish.

      Intense but Lots of Fun, Terrific Company
      Well that was an experience!! We have been rafting in many places over the world and in the U.S., including doing a 7m waterfall in New Zealand. Nothing we have done matched the intensity of this tour! Both of us feel comfortable rafting and in the water. We have been trained on rafting rescue. We have never flipped, much less fallen out of a raft. I knew this tour would be different so I felt apprehension despite our experiences. The safety talk before the raft was the most comprehensive briefing we heard, but it also inspired so much confidence in the guides - they are very well trained and know what to do to keep your safe. There was a guide, Tommy, whose purpose was to row along your rafts in the canyons and rescue anyone who fell out if needed (Spoilers! He rescued my husband). They super prepare you for how to rescue yourself if you fall out and I felt perfectly safe with the guides. The swim test is a bit daunting but you are well prepared for it and is a good measure to help you know what you are capable of. For example, I was fine for the first part of the test but had to be rope rescued (which was actually quite fun) for the second part where you need to swim to the raft. Based on that I knew the third canyon was probably not a good fit. However, I had so much fun with the first two canyons which were the most intense of my life. We flipped all the way at the end of the second raft. Our guide Greg got the raft flipped back and us inside in no time. I came out smiling but had enough thrills for the day and sat out the third canyon. The option to decide to skip the last canyon and get refunded is so appreciated because you can really focus on safety / knowing your limits without feeling pressure. The company understands that the point of this tour is to have fun and stay safe and not to put yourself in a situation you are not comfortable with. My husband continued to the third canyon. He fell out two more times and came back with only one shoe. He was also beaming having had the time of his life! This was hands down one of his favorite tours. Big shout out to Dawn from the office who was wonderful to communicate with, our fearless guide Greg, and to Tommy. It was privilege rafting with this company. I would love to come back some day and tackle that third canyon!

      A highlight of our family, Alaska trip!
      My family had a great time. There were six off us, with our kids ranging from 18yoa to 24yoa. They focused on safety, and it was appreciated. There is a swim test, and this might give you an idea of whether or not you should do this. We’ve rafted before, and this was probably the most intense (canyon 3!). James was my guide. Two other passengers named Hannah and Vroon were awesome!

      A dynamic experience
      This was a very dynamic experience. The rapids were beautiful (all three canyons) and had more thrill than a Japanese pachinko parlor. The guides were extremely skilled, professional, and very high in the vibes department. They made sure we had a great time while also keeping us safe. The dry suits are quality and kept me warm the whole time. As for the hands, I learned those can be kept warm by paddling harder and distracting yourself with thoughts of your impending baptism in the holy river. As a closing thought, here is a one word review: dynamic.

      Worth the 35-year wait
      I have lived in Alaska for 35 years, and this has been on my must-do list for at least 30. I finally went with my daughter and her friends, and it was worth the wait! The river is beautiful, so just from a scenery standpoint, it would be worth doing, but of course, Sixmile Creek is all about the whitewater. I have done quite a bit of whitewater rafting through the years, and this beats everything else I have done hands down. So intense and so fun. Our guide was professional and courteous. I can't say enough good about this. One of the best things I have done.

      I've rafted with Chucach Outdoor Center 3 times before and just reserved this summer's trip. Whenever someone new is with us we want to have them experience this adventure of Alaska!

      Best Rafting Trip I've Ever Done
      This was hands down the best rafting trip I've ever been on. These trips are really well run and the location is absolutely beautiful! If you sign up for the 2 Canyon trip and decide that you want to do the 3rd, you can just keep going. The guides were very experienced and friendly. They have you do a quick swim test before you go, which can be intimidating at first. But it's designed to prepare you if people do fall out of the water and it really did make things easier when people did fall out (which they did, a lot, on my trip). This definitely isn't just an easy float down the river, but if you're looking for a fun adventure, I can't recommend the Chugach Outdoor Center enough!

      Fun White Water Rafting with great guides
      Fun times. Not super insane/crazy but not for weaklings. If you want an adrenaline rush then do this! Neil, Archie , Popcorn and the others were great and thorough. Did the class V with my 78 year old dad and felt like we were in safe hands.

    Our guide Tommy took us through canyon 1 & 2 and we could not have had more fun! The water was cold, but it was a sunny day and I had so much adrenaline that I never felt cold (even after getting bounced into the water!)
    The water is crystal clear and the scenery is beautiful, but the real excitement is the rapids! Make no mistake-this is NOT a float trip!
    My husband and I both had a good time, as did our 16 year old grandson. He would have liked going down the last canyon, but my husband and I had enjoyed all of the excitement we could handle for the day.
    This canyon is a MUST for whitewater lovers! One of the top 5 in the world and I believe it!

    What.A.RUSH! 2 adults and a teen loved our experience! This was our first time to whitewater raft and we truly enjoyed it. Six Mile Creek is beautiful so that alone is nice. But then the rapids are an adrenaline pumping rush! My wife and daughter fell out but were quickly rescued and were fine. Cold? Only if your hands or face are wet. The dry suits they provide kept us dry and warm from our toes to our neck. The guides were professional and also funny. The swim test at the beginning seems a bit daunting at first, but once you do it, it really isn't. While this was our first time to go whitewater rafting, it most certainly won't be our last!

    My family’s Six Mike Creek rafting trip was fun and exciting. We’ve rafted many places across the US (Glacier NP MT, Browns Canyon CO, Deschutes River OR, Snake River WY, Yellowstone WY) and this was the best River we’ve done yet. The two canyons are rough, but manageable and fun. Of the 5 rafts that went down the creek, only one dumped its occupants, but the recovery was quick and everyone aboard was laughing at the experience.
    Our guide, Christoph was quiet, but extremely skilled. He hit every rapids cleanly which resulted in a very safe trip. Yes, we got wet, but never did I feel endangered. Kudos to Christoph!
    Also, a lot of reviews talk about the swim test. It nothing difficult except committing yourself to swim and float in the cold water. All thumbs up for this rafting adventure.

    We went rafting for a wedding party and it was a lot of fun! The experience is kind of terrifying, they have you do a swim test across the river since there is high chance of falling off the raft and going for a swim. Some of our party fell off the rafts, but everyone made it to the end safely! Our raft guide Steven with his paw patrol sun glasses made the experience even better! The trip is not for the faint hearted, and I will say I appreciated the adventure more after I made it safely to the end 😂

    Took my wife rafting for her first time here and she had a blast. The big stuff is in canyon 3 so be sure to do the whole thing if you want the class fives. They give you the option if you decide during the trip. Creek rafting was a cool change for me and the scenery was amazing. Great way to spend a morning in AK.

    We (husband, 12-year old son and I) did the 2-canyon trip in mid June 2020. I was dreading the swim test in the frigid water but it really did make me more relaxed once we faced the rapids. Gumby was our guide. He was fun and EXTREMELY SKILLED. We had total confidence in him. Dawn in the office was a big help when I called from Atlanta to do our trip planning. And Dana, the photographer, helped me after I returned home in locating the picture of my son grinning ear-to-ear after I foolishly left the shop without buying it. For a guaranteed great time, this is a must do.

    Two canyon whitewater trip - not for the faint hearted (or those not in good physical condition). We rafted the end of May, about a week after they opened for the season. There were four of us and the guide in the raft.

    The swim test was brutal - I'm a decent swimmer but 36 degree water with a dry suit and 'river shoes' (aka old sneakers) made it hard to get across the river. I didn't come out of the "float" part of the swim test early enough and the current was taking me downstream. I had to be 'rope rescued' and trust me, when they tell you if you have to grab a rope put it over your shoulder and turn on your back (as per the safety briefing) that is what you need to do -- I didn't think to do it immediately and was being dragged face first up river. But the guide pulled me to shore and I recovered after swallowing only a smart part of the river.

    Our guide, Neil (Neal?) was excellent - he provided instructions before each rapids including what to do if we got thrown out of the raft (e.g, swim to the left bank, swim to the right bank, grab the raft). All of us went out of the raft at one time or another (some of us more than once).

    No one in our boat chose to do the third canyon. You can make the decision on the third canyon after you get out of the last of the 2nd canyon rapids - they will adjust what you paid after the trip is over. I have rafted the Gauley river in WV and this was much more intense. I was glad to have the option to not do the third canyon!

    It was a great trip, quite professional company and safety is their priority.

    I've gone on probaly 15 rafting trips across the country. This and the gauley river in west virgina were the 2 best. This is definitly not a float trip. everybody from the office staff to guides were first rate. The pre raft safety talk was one of the best ever. The eagle flying around behind him was pretty cool. Dress very warm, the wetsuit keeps you mostly dry. If you make it halfway you can make the second canyon. I fell in twice, that was the most swiming i did over the summer in alaska. I'm from ct and didn't know they had fantastic rafting in alaska.

    This raft company was recommended to us by our VRBO host. It was an excellent suggestion. Our guide Ara was amazing. It was a very fun adrenaline filled experience but we still felt safe and in competent hands. The canyon you raft through is very scenic. The cat at headquarters was very cute. One member of our family (me) was a bit apprehensive before the trip but ended up thoroughly enjoying it.
