Whitewater rafting with Chugach Outdoor Center reveals an Alaskan outdoor paradise located just 112 km (70 mi) from Anchorage. With this operator, you'll get a big adrenaline kick navigating the Six Mile Creek, which cuts its way through three canyons and features Class IV and V rapids. You can choose between several different trips, with all the necessary rafting equipment provided by the operator. The company offers excursions to other destinations and other activities, including sea kayaking in Prince William Sound and scenic floating trips. Plan my Anchorage trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • We are a family of 5 with 3 teens and no whitewater rafting experience. The staff of Chugach picked us up at the cruise terminal in Seward and after rafting dropped us at the airport after rafting. Th...  more »

  • The rafting experience here was AMAZING! We had the best guide named Tommy. Pick him as a guide if you are able- he shared a lot of great information about the area and shared some funny stories, as well! We felt safe leaving our things at the center while we rafted. We had only signed up for the class III rapids but stayed for the VI and Vs because we had such a great time! They provide all equipment and other trips, if you're not the super adventurous type. Check this place out. You won't regret it!
  • This place is awesome! All of the staff are easy-going and very well-experienced. Sadly, I was not able to make the trip due to illness, even after getting dressed and paying up front, they still refunded my money .they truly care about their customers and want the best experience for them. My fiance, her father, sister and cousin had an absolute blast! We are still talking about specifics of their trip! The memories we were able to make with Chugach will last a life time! Thank you!
  • Adventurous and simply amazing. Our guide Archie seem very experienced and was very friendly. He managed to keep us all on the boat through both canyon rapids. The water was freezing but we had a blast. This is truly a must do for the adventurous out there. The swim test was very challenging for me and they had to throw the rope for rescue but I kept going afterwards. This was so exciting and I must say the trip was quite long, longer than expected. You can buy pictures at the end and you may bring a Go Pro for your helmet if you are into that, I was hoping to rent it there but that was not the case. Our guide Archie was wearing one but he did not offer or give us any info to view the video. I meant to ask but I forgot. Great awesome trip!
  • What a phenomenal trip! Our guide, James, was highly experienced, knowledgeable, and fun! They prepped us well with a pre-rafting offensive swim-defensive float-offensive swim exercise, which was smart given the rapids we were about to get into. The class IVs and Vs were out of this world, but I would recommend that if you haven't been rafting before in IIIs etc that you don't start with this trip. Use this team/company - their guides and safety precautions are exceptional and exactly what you want for such an adventure!
  • These guys are the real deal. Rafting experience of a lifetime. Tommy was great!
