Terrific experience with my 8 year old granddaughter - you put in at the lake close to Mendenhall, not right in front of it, but you still get gorgeous views. The short time on white water rapids was very fun. Our guide was terrific and knew a lot about the geography of the area. Customer service was outstanding - we accidentally got on the kayaking tour and missed our rafting tour. A rep from the company came to the rafting site, took us back to the ship, showed us exactly where to be to pick up the rafting tour and got us on the next one. I was so impressed that they were so accommodating and kind. Highly recommend.
The trip was great. the Tour guide was young, energetic, and was having fun with us. He made sure the group had a good experience individually and collectively. One really good aspect was while the ship's large tour buses were being loaded and everyone herded, we had a small group that bussed together and did the tour together. The trip itself - lake, glacier, and river were just terrific. We would highly recommend this tour
Absolutely stunning scenery. I would have enjoyed a little more white water, but my eight year-old said it was perfect!
My husband and two boys, 18 and 13, absolutely loved it. It was raining most of the time but our guide, Sam, was so energetic and fun that we could have cared less about the rain. Super fun. Do not miss this!
We all suited up from head to tow got into the raft and away we went. We had enough rowers to make it easy for our guide as a result we took the long way. the non rowers sat in the middle and the trip was just as enjoyable for them. The water temp. was 38* and the rapids were tamable. Hot cider and snacks at the end. The guides were and enthusiast and knowledgeable. A fun outing.
This trip was fun, exciting and a little frightening, all rolled into one! The price for the photo was extortionate, but we had to have it because it was utterly brilliant!

Bus driver very funny and friendly. Paddler/guide very informative and skillful. Not enough white water runs - not your fault !!!
The scenery in Alaska is always wonderful. This was my second trip to Alaska in 12 months. The group in my raft made the trip so much fun. I was a little disapppointed in the lack of white water, but that is out of your hands.
