We had a lovely morning driving up the valley and kayaking on Chilkoot Lake. We chose Rainbow due to the goid reviews and the two person kayaks versus three seaters and large groups with some other tour groups in Haines. Our guides were friendly and shared techniques as well as

The trip had everything we wanted. We chose Alaska for the wilderness and scenery (we live in Cambridge England) and we chose this particular excursion because we hoped it would give us some proper exercise after a couple of days on a cruise ship. So we were very happy to

Thanks for this great review of Preston. Preston guides both our rafting and kayak tours so he has great boating skills and also lots of local knowledge. You came from a long ways away and I'm glad you were happy with our tour. Chilkoot Lake really is great to visit and I'm glad you were able to see brown bear. Late July is a little early for reliable bear sightings so you were lucky! The kayak tour does involve a bit of exercise, so it is good to note that you have to be up for some paddling if you want to go on the kayak tour. For those who want to see the area and possibly bear but are not up for kayaking, our Chilkoot Lake Nature and Wildlife tour is the best choice. Joe

Yes you were lucky to have a day on the lake with Aly. She is an amazing person and guide with lots of great stories from her life in rural Alaska. Chilkoot Lake is perfect for kayaking and I'm glad you enjoyed your day. Please come back some time to see the other side of the valley, the beautiful Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve with our rafting excursion. Joe

We really enjoyed our experience. Our guide was amazing and very patient (boarding kayaks takes a while!). The scenery was gorgeous. We got to stop to see bears along the way, which was an incredible experience (it was the only time we saw bears on our trip). Well run tour and

We had a great time kayaking with Zephyr and Nate. Even though it was raining / misting - they made the adventure fun and fascinating. This place is quiet and bordering on magical. Not to be missed.
