Deluxe Alaska Float Fishing Trips
Our Fishing and Camp Programs Available On Select Waters

Our Fisherman's Deluxe style trip program is available on the Alagnak River This style of trip upgrades your experience and comfort level over our Intimate Rivers and Standard style programs. It includes a Gear Boat and Extra Camp Hand - Note the Fisherman's Deluxe Style Trip is unavailable on the Kanektok, Goodnews Rivers and Togiak Rivers due to USFWS restrictions.

With three decades of experience behind them, our "Deluxe Alaska Fishing Programs" are for those of you whose days of tent camping in little tents and sleeping on the ground are behind you. They feature amenities that ensure a safe and comfortable Alaska experience, and the fishing is pretty good, too!

The "accommodations" are like no other you will find anywhere on an Alaska float trip! Each of these tents houses two anglers and is spacious enough to provide ample space for your gear and a comfortable retreat should the weather become inclement. We equip these tents with chairs and comfortable cots, a welcome luxury after a day of fishing. Just toss on "your bag" and enjoy a good night's sleep. There is also a custom-built dining tent and screened area; both can hold the entire group for dining or as a gathering area. Tents on these trips are all made in Alaska for its extreme conditions.

Two anglers and their guide float the river in custom-built drifter rafts. Each is equipped with custom frames with front and rear seating, allowing for an exceptional angling experience. The drifter rafts, being less heavily loaded, are more maneuverable, allowing access to runs you might not otherwise be able to reach.

The Fisherman's Deluxe-style trips also feature an additional gear boat on which most camp gear gets carried, a 2-1 guest-to-guide ratio, and require some participation and group effort. Anglers can rotate guides daily, enabling everyone to fish with each staff member if desired. Your involvement with unloading the rafts, moving camp gear, and setting up taking down sleep tents is greatly appreciated.

Goodnews and Kanektok Deluxe (Only style offered on the Goodnews and Kanektok Rivers as of 2024)

Similar To The Fisherman's Deluxe ~ But No Gear Boat

Where our Goodnews and Kanektok style trips differ from our Fisherman's Deluxe style, you have two anglers and their guide floating the river in custom-built rafts, each equipped with a custom frame with front and rear seating; however, they do not offer the additional gear boat to carry the camp gear. Instead, we utilize significantly larger rafts for two anglers, your guide, and all the gear to comply with USFWS regulations.

This program also upgrades your experience and comfort over our Intimate Rivers and Standard style programs. With three decades of experience behind them, and for those of you whose days of tent camping in little tents and sleeping on the ground are behind you, They feature amenities that ensure a safe and comfortable Alaska experience.

Guest accommodations are in 10x10 Alaska-made tents with 6' height, with cots and chairs.

Intimate Rivers - Offered On the Arolik River / American Creek / Talachulitna River and other select waters.

These are Minimalist Style Trips Trips

Our Intimate Rivers program encompasses a couple of ideas: travel to "smaller streams" that offer a more intimate overall experience or can be a less expensive option on some waters, typically listed as our deluxe or standard style trips. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us for availability.

On some waters, this style of trip is necessary due to the river no having direct access to a lake or just because the size of the stream is such that the larger rafts used on our deluxe trips are impractical.

These trips allow you to get up close and personal with trophy salmon, trout, char, and other species on smaller streams. You still get the same personal service and attention to detail that has long been a hallmark of an Alaska Rainbow Adventures Alaska fly fishing float trip.

This level of service is our least expensive option, utilizing smaller rafts and fewer amenities than our other trips to save weight and the required aircraft numbers. It is comparable to what most other operators offer as "standard" Alaska float trip fare. It is distinct from our upgraded Standard or Deluxe style trips. It is a roughing-it, bare-bones adventure without seats in the rafts or, in some cases, cots in the tents.

For 2024, we feature a larger Alaska-made tent for two persons with cots as an option to our Everest style expedition tents with a pad but no cot, please inquire for availability. Our Eddie Bauer expedition tents, however, are large enough that you are not cramming into one like a sardine without the oil as you might in the one or two-person tents other operations offer.
