GEAR TO BRING WITH YOU & GEAR PROVIDED
The Nenana River is formed by glacial runoff. Please be aware that water temperatures will be cold – just a couple of degrees above freezing. Your clothes will keep you warm and the drysuits will keep your clothes dry, if you put the drysuit on correctly. It is easier to cool off than to warm up when rafting. Overdressing is the safest bet to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable time.
You will be given river shoes, so you will not get your shoes wet during the trip. Your hands and face are the only body parts exposed to water. After the trip, you'll return to the office, take the drysuit off, and be able to go on your next adventure. The weather is unpredictable in Alaska, so it's advisable to bring a rain jacket.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the difference between an oar boat and a paddleboat?
In an oar boat, you hold on and enjoy the ride – your river guide does all the work. In a paddleboat, you will participate in propelling the boat downstream. Both rafts run the same stretch of river and the same rapids. The paddleboat tends to be more adventurous for the customer because you are actively leaning outside the raft and paddling through waves.
What are the age restrictions for rafting?
Scenic Wave Run: Recommended 5 years and up in an oar boat, 15 years and up in a paddle boat
If I can't swim, can I still go rafting?
