Great for a short family adventure. I took my 12 year old daughter, who was a little scared, but she had fun and said she would do it again.

The most memorable part of the experience was seeing a family of otters swimming nearby. It was a fun time had by all, which included 4 kids between 8 and 14, 2 adults 38 and 64 (plus 3 other unrelated adults and the guide). Michael made the experience extra special with fun facts and joking. It can be a little chilly toward the end of 2 hrs, but, we warmed up on the bus.

Our guide Jake was awesome!! He was very patient and encouraging with us first timers. We had an 2, 8 and 9 yr old with us and he couldn't have treated them better, always willing to lift them back into the raft after swimming. Next time we re in the area we're doing the all day trip!!

Everyone was great to work with. Michael our guide, was a lot of fun. This was a great introduction to rafting. We went at very comfortable pace. Hit some rapids and smooth water. I will definitely be doing this again when I’m back in Montana.

First Timers Had a Blast

Pat was our guide & he was awesome helping our two families navigate white water rafting down the Yellowstone River (1/2 day trip) for the first time. For all, this was the best adventure of our vacation. 4 adults (age 42-46) & 4 kids (10-13) all loved this. Pat told stories & jokes & answered our many questions about rafting and sights on the trip, but most of all he made us feel like he put our safety first while having us enjoy lots of big splashes, swimming, and fun paddling down the river. Totally would do it again with this company in a heart beat. Great group & guide.

Our two families had a wonderful experience with the two hour, rafting tour as it was our first time river rafting. Krista was a great guide that gave us great confidence in the safety of our younger children while also having an enjoyable and exciting time doing the rapids of the Yellowstone River. We highly recommend her and her crew for your future adventures in Gardiner, MT.

Loved the Class II and III rapids and our guide, Joe, was wonderful. It was over WAY too soon, tho. We booked the 2-hour raft ride, but we were on the water a total of 1 hr, 20 min. That was disappointing. The safety instruction was thorough, the staff was friendly, plenty of parking and they loaned us water shoes; hence the high rating. Wish it had been longer! The 3 teens LOVED IT and so did we (Grandma and Grandpa).

Great experience. And our guide made it even better! Our kids (ages 10, 9, 7 and 5) all LOVED it and asked if we could do it again immediately!
