Experience the rivers of Alaska in a technologically advanced environmentally controlled jet boat, created to safely local navigate rivers. This gentle ride takes you 20 miles up and back on the Susitna River enjoying the splendor of Alaskan river beauty and nature. Your naturalist and Captain will talk about the local glacial fed rivers & explain their Alaskan names, as well as offer a panoramic view of Denali. Also discussed will be the life cycle of our local salmon and various wildlife that consider our area home. Step ashore and take a leisurely ¼-mile stroll and visit an authentic trapper’s cabin, and a recreated encampment of the Dena’ina Indians, the area’s original inhabitants.
