Great fun for even the average middle age Mum.

My husband and 2 boys took this trip this summer in august and had a great time. Having only rafted a mild river in jasper previously, we were not expecting the intense prep prior to departure. The dry suits were a new experience for us and the second hand barely there sneakers and helmets were quite the accessories. We were transported to the launch site in a shuttle and then received a stern tutorial as to how to survive falling overboard. We then had to demonstrate our skills by swimming across the river, floating downstream on our back, swimming to the raft, getting pulled in by a fellow rafter and then pulling in the next swimmer. After that we were divided into our groups and set off following the guides paddle instructions. Took us a few minutes to get coordinated but it was fun to work together and feel that we were contributing to the control of the raft. Was happy for the helmet after smacking into my sons head on the first rapid and very grateful for his quick thinking when he saved me from going over on the next rapid. (Damn that lack of core strength 😊). We opted out Of the last canyon since that was a class 5 and I felt sure I would be going for a swim. It was great fun overall and an exciting way to start our Alaska trip.

Aunt (barely) Lives Through Sibling Reunion
Aug 2021 • Family
We rafted the first two canions, and it was, not only the best part of this vacation, but may actually be the best time I have ever had on vacation. The canions are exciting and dangerous, and exactly what we were looking for. My three siblings and I rafted along with our aunt. The four of us siblings hadn’t been together since our dad’s funeral 13 years ago. We chose this activity as a family team building exercise, and we haven’t stopped talking about it since. That was over a week ago. In addition to the canions, the guides were experienced and personable. I can’t say enough good things about them. We were half an hour late, holding up the entire group, and our guides only nicely encouraged us to “move like we’re half an hour late” when we were dawdling. Our aunt fell overboard twice and our guide, Greg, was able to pull her back in the raft each time, single handedly, while simultaneously giving us commands and keeping the raft under control. To top all that, Chugach Outdoor takes pictures of the rafters while they’re going downstream and sells the pictures at the end of the trip. Our mother was on shore taking photos the entire time, and the Chugach photographer actually showed her where the best spots were to take pictures! The trip was absolutely amazing. We will do this every time we’re in Alaska.

Rafting The Two Canyons
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.

What a blast!
May 2021
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.

"the most swiming i did in alaska"
Jul 2020
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.

Great time in AK for any skill level
Aug 2020 • Couples
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.

A must do!!!
Jul 2020 • Family
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!

This was a riot!
Jun 2020
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.

Incredible Adrenaline Pumping Experience
Jun 2020
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!
