Our family took the one-day raft/flightsee trip with Copper Oar. The guides and pilot were excellent and the scenery outstanding. On our lunch break our guides set up a buffet table (with tablecloth, dishes, napkins, great food) and camp stools for each guest. We felt safe on the plane that picked us up on the river bank. The "flightsee" was short but the scenery (river, canyon, glacier, icefall, mountains, former Kennicott mining town) is one-of-a-kind. The only disappointment was that we did not see much wildlife on the raft trip, but Copper Oar can't help that.
We actually did a package that included an all-day glacier hike (which, for us, was even better than the raft trip) and a tour of the main old mining building (which was also excellent).
After we had arranged the package, Copper Oar sent us detailed information about what to wear and what to bring.
All highly recommended.
(There are some other options for the flightseeing. We ended up in a van with three people who had done a longer flightsee tour of the glaciers, mountains and icefall. Based on their reaction, we will be adding that to our list when we go back.)
