Has anyone here ever gone up (or attempted to go up) the Drift River on the other side of the Inlet? A friend bought 12 acres over there and we want to go from Kenai to the land, which is about 8 miles up river. I have a 24' jet boat BUT I cannot tell from his aerial photos if the river is navigable for a jet boat of this size (or any size). We do have a Zodiac we could use to go up river too if necessary. It looks like Cannery Creek is navigable up the falls but we would like to go up the Drift.....any experience out there?
maybe you could ride up the road from cannery creek at the falls....it likely connects to the terminal road nearby.
