Rafting experience was great- we had the raft where you had to paddle with the guide and I would recommend it. Was a rainy day but ride was beautiful and fun and our guide was very knowledgable.

This excursion was the best one of the entire trip. I would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone that went to Alaska. I was a little hesitant using a third party company that was not part of the Cruise line but I am sure glad I did. Best company ever!

This was a good tour. Our guide worked hard to ensure we had a good trip. We got to see two black bear cubs playing on the river bank.

Hurry up and wait. Felt rushed to get into small van to get to the site in cold rain, put on rain gear and wait 1/2 hr for another group. Not cool. The female guide was perfect, funny and knowledgeable
Worth the wait, but hey, don't rush people to wait

Only a couple of very mild rapids. More of a float trip. But our guide Josh was fantastic and made the trip really enjoyable. My 11 year old son and 70 year old in-laws had a great time.

We loved the rafting trip around Mendenhall Lake and down the river. Our guide, Adam, was excellent: informative, knowledgeable, and always made us feel safe. Other staff members were equally as friendly and helpful. We were only disappointed that we could not see the face of the glacier.
