We did a river float trip with ARC and had a great time. We were outfitted in rain gear & rubber boots and headed off for an 11mile float down the Kenai river. Our guide was informative and very friendly

Chris, our guide, made our trip a family favorite. The Kenai River made it amazing. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Alaska. With 4 kids from 9-14, this is a great way to invest your time.

Our tour guide was fun and informative. We saw so many bald eagles on our 3 hour river float, I used a coupon, so it was a very affordable activity for two people.
