Ocean Raft Wildlife Adventure: Had an amazing time! My friend and I splurged on this excursion - and boy, did we choose right! Such a fun experience. Short bus ride to where you suit up in warm waterproof outfits (many sizes offered), then you hop in the boat and ride around the fjord! Took on big waves, did doughnuts, and spotted plenty of wildlife. The staff was incredibly friendly and knowledgable. Pictures don't do the scenery justice - so beautiful! We were in awe while still having a blast bouncing over the waves. And we had plenty of time to check out the town and shop around afterwards. Absolutely recommend! Read Less

This was the highlight excursion of the trip. High speed ocean rafting in a Coast Guard type boat. Lots of great scenery and wildlife along the way for stops in the water. Highly recommend.

We went on the ocean rafting adventure. It met at the base of the pier and they drove us to the small boat harbor. I'm not sure why they bothered with the ride as it was maybe 200 yards. Once there, we put on orange exposure suites so we would look like orange smurfs! It was fun but they were pretty hot given the sunny, 80 degree day. Once we boarded the boat, the exposure suits felt very good. The boat was better described as a motor boat than a raft, but it moved right along and our captain enjoyed doing donuts in the water to add to the fun. Otherwise, the calm seas made for a very smooth ride. We stopped at several spectacular waterfalls and more that a few Eagles. Most of them were just sitting on branches soaking up the exceptionally bright sunshine. A few would take off after a few minutes and we got to see them in flight. It was a great excursion and I'd recommend it to anyone. Read Less

Ocean Raft Adventure booked through NCL. This adventure far exceeded my expectations and was an incredibly fun way to see nature at its finest! Our guide got us deep into coves with beautiful waterfalls that would not have been otherwise experienced! This truly felt like what you would imagine Alaska to be - - water, mountains, waterfalls, eagles, and other wildlife! There was just something extra special about being on the water in a small Zodiak boat and getting that close to nature. Read Less

The river is basically flat and again, we were required to wait on the banks so that we didn't run into the group ahead of us. This whole trip could have taken 1 1/2 hours, instead it was over 3.
