Rainbow Glacier Adventures has openings for seasonal River Rafting Guides in Haines, Alaska.
Our rafting tours take place on the Chilkat River and highlight the natural wonders of the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve. This 1.5 hour float trip provides an opportunity for our guests to experience wild Alaska in a safe and enjoyable way. There is no whitewater but the river is fed by a glacier; the water is swift, cold, and silty. The river is shallow, braided and there are driftwood obstacles throughout. Bald eagles nest in the cottonwood trees along the river, and brown bears and moose can be seen at various times throughout the summer season. The ideal candidate has experience running rivers in an oar-powered rubber raft, is committed to guest safety, and possesses a love of nature and an enthusiastic desire to share this love with others.
We specialize in small-group tours and we provide in-depth training on guiding, natural history and safety throughout the tour season.
The season runs from late April through late September 2023.
