We, the founders of New Wave Adventures – Thomas "Chicago" Concannon, Michael "Peacock" Ferrero, and Sheila "She-ra" Concannon – have worked in the rafting industry all over the world. For the last 15 years, we have spent summers in Denali National Park, Alaska. Our goal for New Wave Adventures is to immerse ourselves in outdoor adventure, all the while exposing individuals to the awesome beauty of the world. To make this happen, our team has combined all that we learned during our time in the industry to create this company. We offer you, exceptional adventures that will leave you with unforgettable experiences.

I've gone rafting with Chicago and Peacock on the Nenana and I've gone with other companies to experience how they differ. They truly create a unique adventure for each of their guests. I highly recommend!

Mike Peacock is a world-class guide and human. Myself and my family have had some of our most memorable adventures while in a boat with Peacock. I am happy to see one of the best start his own program and I look forward to being on the water with any of his team in the future.

Rafting has become one of my favorite summer activities, and Wookie from New Wave is THE BEST! I have gone on multiple rafting trips in Alaska and he is by far the most entertaining and knowledgeable raft guide I've had. I take everyone that visits us rafting and now request him every time. Thanks Wookie!
