The Twenty-Mile River flows from snowfields high above Prince William Sound through stunning lakes to Turnagain Arm near Portage. Carmen Lake is the ultimate up river destination surrounded by mountains, water falls and distant glaciers. Twenty Mile Lake floats sparkling blue icebergs calved from the glacier’s dramatic face. Taking highly maneuverable jet boats, the trip heads out on challenging river sections and allows guests to get off the beaten path into a spectacular glaciated area. With skilled guides and special Chugach National Forest permits, this trip provides nearly exclusive access to this wilderness area. The exhilarating jet boat ride is truly an Alaskan experience. See wildlife like eagles, salmon and moose frequent the river corridor. Plus, a nature walk ashore adds to the experience and remarkable views.
Jet boat access allows remote lake kayaking for plenty of opportunities to look for wildlife. Plus, it's quite an experience just being out there. Skipping rocks, gazing at waterfalls and glacier viewing are popular activities as the guides prepare a beachside barbeque. The exciting jet boat ride journeys through twists, turns and rapids to Twenty-Mile Glacier’s massive ice bergs to complete the day.
