Alpacka Raft Gnarwhal Packraft

There’s little out there that can compete with the adrenaline rush of a whitewater rafting expedition. Feeling the rush as you plummet through standing waves, across boils, eddy lines or even over the falls is unlike any other water sport around. There is, however, the imperative need for a quality packraft that can withstand this type of abuse.

Enter the newest iteration of the well-known Gnarwhal from Alpacka Raft. Made entirely in the USA, each one is outfitted with their all-new patent pending 12-inch high volume stern and hull and to maximize stability, predictability, and forgiveness in even the most challenging whitewater rapids. Each Gnarwhal also comes standard with Alpacka’s custom foam backband mounted to lightweight d-rings, their whitewater seating system with a 3/4 length inflatable seat and footrest, along with their patent-pending 4-point thigh strap system to keep you in the raft and out of the river. It’s also now equipped with a higher volume hull to transport additional gear and is available in several configurations and color ways as well.

Purchase: $1,500+
