Beautiful Tour! Alex, our guide, was very professional, knew the river very well, and obviously enjoyed his job! We were pleased to find it was not a true whitewater rafting type tour with heavy rapids. It was more of a float tour. All water gear was provided. Shoes and items were collected prior to departing on the tour and ready for us at the end of the tour.

Organized shuttle to the rafting area. Tanner (our tour guide) was very informative and made our trip very enjoyable! We appreciated the rain gear provided.

The raft ride across the lake and down the river was very interesting and fun. the guide was a student from Minnesota and really enjoyed his job. The post rafting snacks are pretty lame. It rained during most of our ride which made it pretty cold.

We didn't know there were only 4 rafts where everyone paddles. I'd recommend you include a note to the vendor if that is what you desire. Our raft as most had a guide controlling his set of oars, and the passengers were along for the ride. Still a very enjoyable trip down a glacial river - great views of Mendenhall Glacier, there was a bald eagle sitting on a branch about 15 feet away from our raft at one point. You may be disappointed if your expecting a full on whitewater rafting experience, but it is a very beautiful, interesting, and enjoyable way to see part of Juneau. Well coordinated with bus shuttle from port to river and return. Bus driver gave narration along the trip, both directions. Many eagle and salmon sightings!
