    Nova River Runners in Chickaloon...runs the Matanuska River as well as some Kenai Peninsule rivers like six-mile. They have a great safety record.
    Chugach Outdoor Center does some Kenai Peninsula rivers, again with great safety records.

    determine how big of a thrill you want...each company has gentle class II as well as thrilling Class lV trips...
    other forum members will probably have other suggestions, like raft trips originating out of Denali...

    I will second NOVA. I would not recomend 6 mile unless you and the wife have been down a few rivers. Even though NOVA does a great job and has an outstanding safety record, the 6 mile might scare a person to the point you never get back in a raft. The Mat is a very nice float. Scenery and a little splashy water. Best off it is right at home for you.
