Here in Alaska we have a very short window of spring, summer, and
fall float trip activity timeline. Alaska is Alaska - we have dynamic and
distinctively diverse factors that can influence keeping to a
perfect model itinerary on any prospective wilderness trips... particularly fly out destinations. Prearranged logistics
such as rental equipment availability, transport, air taxis, insurance, and permitting can be multifaceted... therefore characteristically must be
well thought-out ahead of time and organized with contingency planning well
in advance. Commitment and assurance is an essential provision to
providing the premier Alaska experience.
Rental Equipment and
Trip Pricing are non-negotiable and not for trade.
AIR ARRANGEMENTS MADE BY YOU OR THE ALASKA RAFT CONNECTION:
1.) Today, all airfares can be very restrictive (even small air
chartering services or bush flying), and carry cancellation
charges imposed ranging from 25% to 100%. Any changes or
cancellations to airfares (or related logistics) after booking are
your financial responsibility. In the event that your air schedule
requires a stay in Anchorage or in any town, ALASKA RAFT
CONNECTION will lend a helping hand to point you in the
right direction for hotel reservations. Overnights are at your
expense as are any extra overnights. This would not apply to
potentially getting stuck in the wilderness on a float trip due to
poor flying/landing weather or awfully irregular to storm/flood river
conditions... ALASKA RAFT CONNECTION will take concern of this event as
all-inclusive in the field. Most airlines are very good here in
Alaska about getting you on the next available departure should
your bush plane charter flight be delayed due to weather and or delays due to hazard mitigation. In this
untimely event, the bush flying service will generally provide you with a note on company
letterhead defining the cause for delay and you missing your
2.) ALASKA RAFT CONNECTION reserves the right to
increase any/all pricing in the event of YOUR last minute
reservation alterations. We further oblige the decision to
for an over-indulgence of excessive personal baggage requiring
extra aircraft, boats, guides, or other transportation.
