About Kenai RiverDog
KRD is a small company based out of Cooper Landing, Alaska. We specialize in personalized rafting trips with smaller group sizes.

So, what's the plan, Stan?

We offer a unique experience. We want you to see rafting on the river as we see it..... as an intrinsically rewarding way to spend your time while you are visiting.

Who Can Go?

The section of river that we raft contains no more than Class 1 rapids. All you just have to do is sit back and take in the scenery while the guide rows. For safety purposes, if you or someone in your party has health issues, please check with us ahead of time so we can talk about if the trip is right for you. Our customers have ranged in age from 3-95.

What kind of group size can we accommodate?

We are downsizing a little this year. We have a 16' cataraft that can fit up to 6 people. If you have a bigger group size, and would still like to float with us, please call and check. We might be able to line up another friendly company to float with us.

What’s the weather like?

The weather changes constantly! One day it can be sunny and warm, the next day it can be cold and windy. We go in most weather conditions, unless it poses a risk to the safety of guides and customers.

A note from the Kayce regarding Porter

Many people ask if Porter can come of floats. Trust me, I LOVE to spend time on the river with my dog, but I have to make sure that he is comfortable and not put at risk of exposure. Upon request, I have been allowing him to go on refuge floats on a nice days. He will often be dropped off for the last 5 miles of the refuge float. The river is more mellow at this section and it doesn’t splash him. He was displaying anxiety on the 2 hour floats due to the splashing of Princess Rapids and the occasional shots from the gun range on the nearby mountainside. I know that many of you are dog lovers, and I want to make sure that you meet the star of the company if you desire, but I do put my dog’s mental and physical well being before my desire to accommodate every trip request. Please understand. This is my “child” and I want what is best for him. If you are interested in bringing your own pup, please ask. We have taken a number of dogs on the river, and it makes for a lot of fun if your dog doesn’t mind the water.

7 mile float trip

This float is 7 miles long and takes approximately 2 hours. It begins at the headwaters of the Kenai River, and ends at Sportsman's boat launch. The scenery is stunning along the way, and there is a good opportunity to see wildlife.

Refuge Float/12 mile float (approximately 3 hours)

Add an extra hour onto your trip and bring some binoculars as you float through a section of the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. Watch the fishermen attempt to catch their limit of sockeye salmon at the confluence of the Russian and Kenai River. Sometimes you will even catch a glimpse of bears trying their paws at fishing or trying to find a yummy fish carcass to munch on.

Refuge trips fill up fast due to the limited amount of starts that our refuge permit allows. Distance is 12 miles and approximate time is 3 hours
