Nik and Mikey guided us down the challenging white water of the Tana and did a fantastic job. They were patient, well organized and ran huge waves with safety and gusto. Well done! Can't imagine a more fun trip.

Hi John,
Thank you for the great review! Mikey and I had a great time on the Tana with you guys, a great crew to row some of this National Parks biggest rapids with. One day the Tana will be "discovered" and we can all think back to the early days on such an amazing river! I Hope all of your other Alaska travels were great as well and we see you again soon in the Wrangell Mountains!

My first time in Alaska and first time on class III water. Gabby did a wonderful job leading educating our group on safety and leading us down the river. So much fun...she has a wonderful attitude and made the trip fun! Thanks Gabby!

Our family all went rafting and had a blast. We were able to hike on glaciers and enjoy the stunning sights Alaska had to offer (including one the 2nd largest icefall in the world). Our guide was Gabby and she was postive and concerned for our safety. She gave awesome safety tips in friendly, effective, and easy to understand way. They also had an additional safety boat looking out for us. He was very knowledgable as well. This was my first rafting experience, and overall, I would strongly recommend this company based off the kind staff and once in a lifetime experience.

We had an amazing experience. We had three generations of our family ranging from 26 to 50, a 14 & a 8 year old with us. Gabby was a great guide and was like a part of our family during the trip. She was very personable and treated us more like friends and family than customers. We hiked around some glaciers, did some exploring and then had a wonderful experience rafting down the river. I highly recommend booking a trip and encourage you to ask for Gabby as your guide, she's top notch! Killian helped out as our safety boat and he was great too. The trip was a lot of fun but the staff made the experience so much more enjoyable.
