Expect nothing less than "COLD" water and you will be delightfully surprised by the efficiency of the dry suits. Every body gets to wear the dry suits, otherwise you would die in the 2 hours it take to ride down the river. Silt filled glacier...More

You need only wear socks. The drysuits have latex socks and Denali Raft Adventures provides neoprene booties that you wear over the latex socks. You will leave your shoes at the office while rafting

The McKinley Run or the 4 Hour Scenic would be the best options! These two trips are our mildwater trips with class I, II and one class III rapid. These are both great options for familes with less adventurous members.
