Gary Galbraith – Founder and fearless leader of Alaska Rivers Company. Having been a hard working river guide for over 35 years, he has pretty much seen it all. Don’t for a minute let Gary’s grey scruff make you think he’s slowing down. He knows the Kenai River inside and out, still gets on the oars and practices safety before fun, catches fish in all the hot fishing spots, and runs Class V whitewater like a pro. (How many rafters can wear a blown-up star on their heads going down Class V whitewater and look good while making it look so easy?) In the winter time, Gary is often found skijoring, snowboarding or running the fat skis on powder days. Lately, though, he’s been kind of getting bored with playing on the ground or in and on the water. Now on sunny days, Gary can often be sighted in the air flying around. Adrenaline junkies never quit, they just find new thrills!
