We’re locals who are passionate about sharing all that we love about Alaska.
That’s why we create great adventures that show off her beauty and thrills with enthusiastic and knowledgeable guides. We hire and train our staff for exceptional customer service and keep our state-of-the-art equipment up to the highest standards for safety. So you get authentic Alaska, guided by those who love her.
From the sky, you can see the grandeur of the fjords. From the zip line, you can feel the adrenaline as you soar through the treetops. From behind the wheel of your kart, you experience the landscape as a living thing. From the ground, you’ll see bears, eagles and other wildlife. No matter if you’re at elevation 0’ or 3,000’, you’ll experience the adventure that is Alaska. There’s a tour for every age, interest and fitness level. From an informative walk in the rainforest to a stunning flight over a fjord, there’s an awesome, must-have experience waiting for you.
We are local and have a deep Alaskan legacy. We have been serving the local community for more than 40 years, first through Taquan Air and then later, through ground tours. Owner Brien Salazar is deeply committed to the region, supplying scheduled and charter service to remote towns, providing year-round and seasonal job opportunities and sharing his love for the world’s largest temperate forest with locals and tourists alike. We support our community with volunteer time, donations and more.
Kawanti Adventures has been certified under the Adventure Green Alaska program. This is a voluntary program for Alaska tourism businesses that meet economic, environmental and social sustainability criteria. We are committed to preserving our great State and are conscientious of our footprint, not just on the memories of our guests experience, but also to the impacts we have on our environment.

Collin and Anthony were terrific!
The day was worth it from start to finish. Our guides were first and foremost concerned with safety, so I never felt any unease. Anthony and Collin are very funny and creative which made it even better. They work together as a great team. I'm sorry I didn't get the name of our photographer, he was very fun as well. This was one of the best excursions during our visit to Alaska.
It was a great time..... Don't miss it!
So much fun!!!
Our guides were Ben and Court, they were fantastic. Ben is like the Kurt Vonegut of zip lining. He gives excellent inspirational speeches as you go along, (mostly to kill time while waiting for your turn). We were pleasantly surprised to find an animal sanctuary at the end of our tour, plus hot chocolate! All in all, and amazing experience!
We saw a momma bear and her cub below us!
This is great fun! Not hard and even though I am not a fan of heights or speed I enjoyed the tour thoroughly. Collin and Kelly kept us (a family of 6) in the know and ready to go. We all loved it. Don't miss it!
