I took a trip down the Matanuska River with you when I lived in Anchorage in the early 80’s. After moving back last year and taking a trip with you that summer, I’ve since made four more with NOVA this year. I find your trips to be an excellent way to initiate my visitors to the wonders and joys of Alaska. I want to reiterate my thanks and appreciation to everyone on your staff, from those in the office at Chickaloon to the professional and personable guides insuring a bitchin’ time on the river. I can assure I will be going again.
Sincerely, Dale Hoffman, Alaska
The four of us want to thank NOVA for its professional management of our Talkeetna trip. Your guides are a credit to your organization. I will continue to recommend NOVA. It is refreshing to see such professionalism and enthusiasm from these people who do the job every day.

It’s hard to believe that your people can put in 18 hour days and still be very pleasant and gracious to your guests. Their ability to interact with various personalities of guests on the trip made everyone relaxed. Food was super! We had an excellent experience with your company from trip registration through trip completion.
Phyllis Bennett, Georgia
The trip that you put together on the Chickaloon was a blast. Just wanted to let you know that your guides worked hard to make sure that the run was both memorable and carefree for us clients. I know that the other folks on the trip were equally satisfied with the level of service and attention to detail that NOVA provided. I plan to recommend your outfit to friends.
Cheers! Lynn Carpenter, Illinois
Our NOVA Talkeetna trip was perfect!!! We have told and re-told our stories a hundred times this week and bragging to people returning from the beach that we had the best vacation of all. Please accept our thanks, and our congratulations for being the best of the best.

We can't say enough about your staff and guides. Your guides were friendly, responcible and very professional. I know that everyone on the trip was more than satisfied with every aspect of the trip. It was an experience we will never forget.

I have lived in Alaska for over 20 years and have wanted to do a whitewater run for a long time. On July 10, 2004, I was on your Six Mile Creek trip; what fun and excitement!! It was an awesome experience! I have recommended your company to friends. Thank you!

We would like to thank you again for the 2 day Matanuska rafting trip. You gave us a great time in Alaska. Keep us on your mailing list for a longer trip next year.

I want to take this opportunity to tell you what a great time we had on your Talkeetna River trip. Your guides were superbly skilled in maneuvering through the canyon rapids which immediately allowed us to enjoy the excitement of the whitewater. Having participated in numerous commercial and private river trips, we were most impressed with your guide’s skills and the quality of your equipment.
Kevin Dickson, Flor
Our group of seven did the Six Mile Creek trip and we all had a great time, and we can’t say enough about the people you had to work with us. Very professional and FUN; we had an experience we will remember forever! Thank You!
