If adrenaline is the name of your game then this is the adventure package for you. A couple days of action packed fishing is complimented by heart pounding adventures. Paddle your way down class IV and V white water rapids, rappel down an active ice-blue glacier crevasse, and ride a 55 MPH jet ski out to a tide water glacier in a dry suit. No need to worry though – all these adventures are done under the care and instruction of experienced guides.

Kenai River Salmon Fishing
We often like to begin our adventure packages with a Kenai River Salmon trip. From May 15 – Oct 15, depending upon the time of year we can target king salmon, sockeye salmon, silver salmon and pink salmon. We provide all the equipment you need including waders/boots, rods/reels and any bait we might be using on the trip. You only need to bring your fishing license, warm clothes, and any snacks and drinks you might like to have with you. You’ll definitely be amazed at the power and speed of the mighty Kenai River and even more so of the salmon fighting up to 82 miles of it to make it to their spawning grounds.
Alaska halibut fishing in the halibut capital of the world is definitely one of the top adventures of the Essentials Adventure Package. There are several reasons why Alaska halibut fishing is such a great adventure. The first is that halibut fishing is extremely productive and limits of halibut are very common. The second is that these fish can get so big that even the average halibut is likely to be the biggets fish most people will catch in their lifetime. Finally, due to productive fishing and very large fish, halibut fishing is one of the fastest ways to fill fish boxes for the trip home. And at an average market price of $25.00 per pound, what other trips can you take that can put hundreds and hundreds of dollars of fish in the freezer?
White Water Rafting
Sixmile creek is one of the greatest whitewater runs in North America. In addition to amazing whitewater, Sixmile creek is a pristine natural waterway. Four of the five species of pacific salmon call Sixmile home. Bears, moose, eagles and other wildlife rear their young and live their lives in the Sixmile drainage. Carving its way through the Chugach national forest, Sixmile creek is an amazing trip even without the whitewater, but don’t forget to bring your “A game” because this is a true whitewater adventure!
One thing to keep in mind is that this adventure is big water.
Exit Glacier Hike & Climbing
You know those moments in your life where you see something so amazing you rush to get your camera out, snap the picture, only to be disappointed that the photo didn’t even come close to recreating the moment in that photograph? Well that’s what you should think about when you see pictures of Exit Glacier. Photos of Exit Glacier don’t even come close to capturing the magnificence of the glacier.
Upper Kenai River Scenic Float Trip
We offer 3 different scenic float trips down the upper Kenai River:
- 7 Mile, 2 hour float from Cooper Landing to Sportsman’s Landing (Russian River Ferry)
- 12 Mile, 3 hour float from Cooper Landing to Jim’s Landing
- 20 Mile, 6 hour float from Cooper Landing to Upper Skilak Lake Boat Launch
The 2 hour float trip departs twice a day and travels between Cooper Landing and the famous Russian River Ferry. The 3 hour float trip continues past Sportman’s Landing and pulls out just above the Kenai River Canyon and Jim’s Landing. Finally our full day, 6 hour float, continues past Jim’s landing and goes through the Kenai Wildlife Refuge before crossing the upper 7 miles of Skilak Lake. These trips are suitable for all ages.
Jet Ski Glacier
If you want a relaxing day watching the fjords, wildlife and landscape pass by while enjoying lunch and a beverage then check out our Fjords Marine Tours. If you want to feel Alaska on your skin and pilot your own watercraft to a tidewater glacier then you want our Jet Ski Glacier Adventure.
Originating in the deep water port of Whittier, you’ll pilot your personal water craft at 50 miles per hour as we head for Blackstone Bay. There are 10 glaciers in the area and 2 tidewater glaciers to get upclose and personal.
