There are many awesome wildlife experiences to be had out there, but snorkeling with spawning salmon-- where else are you going to do that? Destiny River Adventures rules this particular excursion and they rock it to the max. It is unique and exciting, but you are so well-outfitted and instructed that you don't have to be an extreme athlete to take part. Heck, kids and grandparents can handle it if they have just a little bit of nerve and can follow directions. My husband and I made two runs, two days apart, one morning, one afternoon and are so glad we did not make it a one-time, been there, done that thing. Both times had different features to offer due to tidal variation, light, etc., plus by the second time you really know what you are doing. ;-) We enjoyed both Jane and Jamie as guides and recommend the company wholeheartedly. It was a thrill to snorkel with the abundant (and huge) salmon, not to mention the trout, sculpin, crayfish and even, as you reach the outlet to the bay, harbor seals.

After reading through the waiver documentation and receiving the instructions about what to do and what not to do I was a little worried to what I had let myself in for. I needn't have had any concerns at all because the staff talks/briefings were so needed to make this a safe/wonderful experience. The equipment we were provided with was good and the use of it fully explained. Perhaps there could be more provision of changing facilities but nobody seemed to mind roughing it a little. The snorkelling with the salmon was a unique experience to say the least. Hundreds of them were encountered along with trout, crayfish etc. This was three hours of being with nature and highly recommended if you are in this area. I certainly would do it all over again it was that good. When will you ever get the opportunity to experience this sort of thing anywhere else?

What a fantasitc experience. We were suited up with all the gear and went out onto the river in a raft. We spent well over an hour swimming downstream with all the fish and salmon around us. It was a really amazing experience. Jane, out guide, was capable, friendly and great company. We would highly recommend this activity.

We snorkled with the salmon and trout today in the rain and it was great. Jane was an excellent guide. Floating down the river was a first for us and seeing all the fish was incredible.
