The river float is a pleasant enough excursion although nothing exceptional. After 15 minutes you have seen about all that the scenery is going to offer. Wildlife was virtually non-existent - few ducks, a couple of bald eagles and a seagull. That was about it....More

Took a raft trip with Talkeetna River Guides. They made us feel like extended family telling us not only about the river and surroundings, but the happenings behind the scenes in Talkeetna. Made you want to spend more time with them.

I wish I could remember our river guide's name. She was amazing. Beautiful view all around. We stopped the raft on the side and stopped to pick wild berries. I ate a ton of strange berries. They were yummy and I was pleased. Beautiful view...More

Do the seats on the rafts have backs? I'm concerned that after several hours sitting on the raft that my back will really be hurting. Also, we're considering bringing along our mother, who is 83 years old.
