Hey, I just got off the phone with Nik Merlino of McCarthy River Tours — and he’s offering a 25 percent discount on an EPIC Copper River float trip, departing Chitina on Aug. 9, 2024 (only one departure date).

“This trip is the quintessential scenic Alaska rafting trip,” said Nik.

Raft into the Chugach mountains, down the remote Copper River, past bears, eagles, swans, bears and seals that all feast on the famed Copper River Sockeye salmon. The regular price for this trip is $4,175 per person. With discount applied, cost is $3,130 per person. That includes all meals, tent accommodations along the river, g-r-e-a-t food and more (see below).
