Our family of four (kids 13 and 15) was in the Denali area on July 24 and took a thrilling ride in very chilly water with DOC. We had an awesome guide--"Flood" who showed us a very fun time. We did the canyon run in a oar raft. In hindsight, I think we would have really enjoyed the paddle raft, but the age requirement for that is 14. The scenery is so beautiful, and a view that you can't get from anywhere else! The only other whitewater experience we have is in Pigeon Forge, TN on the Pigeon River. I would say the whitewater was very similar on the day we visited except that the Pigeon River is dam controlled so more predictable! DOC provides everything you need to stay dry...just wear very warm socks! Although the water didn't reach our skin, it is still very cold.
