12 Mile Float/ Kenai National Wildlife Refuge

Mon., Tue., Wed., Thu., Fri., Sat.
3 hours

This trip generally takes between 2 hours and 40 minutes- 3 hours. It is dependent on water level and wind. My van will be shuttled to the end where I will load up the boat and we will drive back together. The last five mile stretch of this river travels through the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. There are generally more fishermen here but that can also translate to more eagles and bears, depending on the season. Please keep in mind bears and moose are hit or miss on this river, but the probability is higher in this stretch. Moose are more likely in the spring along the river and bears are more likely from mid June on.

Other considerations

*Please take note that it is very rare for us to cancel trips due to weather. Alaska’s weather is always unpredictable, so try to dress for it. We will not refund trips due to rain. It is Alaska after all! Please bring your own thick rain gear if possible. Rain boots that we suggest are rubber boots. Hiking books are sometimes ok for for those sitting in the back seats, but the people sitting in the front often get their feet splashed. I have extra rain gear and boots as well, but sometimes the sizes may not be exact.
