Want a ride out to the start of you next river adventure? One of the advantages of our helicopter is its ability to land in hard-to-access locations, making it an ideal form of transport for rafters and pack rafters. Points of access are numerous but include: Clear Creek, the Talkeetna Canyon, Sheep River, Disappointment Creek, and Sheep Creek.
Talkeetna River access.
Due to the bulk that is usually associated with this raft trip we offer flights with our fixed wing aircraft to get all your gear in with as few loads as possible. We are excited to offer this service and look forward to getting you on the river. Please call in advance to reserve your flight date.
Talkeetna Air Taxi's De-Havilland Beaver, "Nine-Zero-Yankee", will be available for raft and kayak drop-offs in the Talkeetna area. 90Y can haul 1,200 pounds per load, typically four passengers plus gear. Drop-offs will be early morning due to favorable weather patterns at that time in the Talkeetna Mountains. 7 a.m. is the desired departure time.
$850 per load to the Upper Talkeetna River. Contact us for rates to other locations. Recommended guiding services: NOVA River RunnersContact us
