“Best Trip Ever!”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Beautiful scenery, knowledgeable guides, and wildlife sightings all combined into one amazing day of adventure! The flightsee on the way back was the perfect end to the day. The food was great, and the guides kept us riding in comfort. I was very impressed with their skill in maneuvering the rafts. I would recommend this trip to anyone who wants the true Alaska wilderness experience. A must do!

“Day Rafting Trip”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

We had a fantastic family adventure rafting trip in 2010! Rafting, hiking, lunch on the "beach," and a return to base by plane! No way to top that! Every member of the crew was fantastic and made sure our adventure was pure fun! I would highly recommend Copper Oar Rafting to anyone looking for this kind of adventure!

“Close you eyes and see the beauty of the Copper River!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

When I feel stressed out I close my eyes and relive the serenity of our family rafting trip on the Copper River with Copper Oar Rafting. Such peaceful memories with 3 teenage boys are rare but so wonderful to hold! JFS
