Amazing kayaking and standing paddle board trip. Friendly guides and amazing setting. Snack not much fun to eat between the mosquitoes. Would rather eat in the train and have some extra time in the water.

I highly recommend doing at least a half-day fishing excursion. The fishing venue the Kenai Princess Lodge used was Alaska Rivers Company. Our fishing guide (Kyle) was outstanding! All three of us in our boat caught fish at different times for the over 4 hours...More

After a few days of adrenaline-filled activities, it was nice to take a relaxing raft tour down the Kenai. It was a rainy morning/afternoon, but that just meant we had the river mostly to ourselves. Saw about 100 eagles, which was awesome. The river is...More
