Located on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, Sixmile Creek is a Whitewater Rafting paradise less than 90 minutes from Anchorage.
For Whitewater Enthusiasts
Rising over 300 feet in places, towering canyon walls are draped in a lush carpet of old growth rain-forest with cascading waterfalls pouring in from the sides. Crystal clear water with healthy salmon runs make this a river runner’s dream. Safely running Sixmile’s narrowly constricted passageways takes a coordinated team effort with technical and precise paddling. Working closely with your guide, you’ll be paddling while (s)he handles the oars. This oar paddling combination gives you power when you need it, as well as precise maneuvering capability.
For those who want the most excitement we offer paddle rafting, everyone paddles with the guide sitting in the back giving paddle commands. Sixmile has such an abundance of whitewater that one rapid will quickly fade from memory as you anxiously look down river preparing for the next. Precipitous drops, thundering hydraulics and powerful waves follow one after the other in quick succession. With each succeeding canyon, we’ll encounter whitewater of increasing difficulty. With rapids known as “Staircase,” “Suckhole,” “Merry-Go-Round” and “Jaws,” the third and most difficult canyon has six rapids rated at Class IV+ and Class V. We offer two choices on Six Mile Creek. You can do the Class IV Two Canyon Run or the Class IV and V Three Canyon Run.
FOR THOSE UP TO THE CHALLENGE, SIXMILE IS THE RIDE OF A LIFETIME!
