Meet the Guides
Copper Oar’s Alaska rafting guides and adventure experts know and love Alaska. We also love sharing this great place with an Alaska outfitter’s style and approach that is founded in safety and your absolute enjoyment. We invite you to meet a few of our alaska rafting guides here. We also suggest that you get to know them in their natural evironment: on a river or trail in the heart of the Alaskan wilderness!
