We had a great experience! Because of my husband's physical limitations we did the float rather than the white water rafting. It was a lovely day and our guide was so accommodating. I enjoyed it so much that white water rafting is now on my bucket list. Thanks for a great day on the river!

This was our first rafting experience, and Yellowstone Raft Company made it a great one. Making reservations was easy, and we received several pre-trip emails with details about what to expect and bring. All of the staff were knowledgeable and helpful. We especially enjoyed our guide Jack. He taught us the ins and outs of rafting, and also pointed out... More

Our family of 6 (ages of kids 7-14) enjoyed Jack our guide! He had so much information about rafting and spotted 3 bald eagles for us. The YRC is very organized and efficient. Very professional. I would totally recommend this river for your rafting in the area and this company. We did the full day rafting and had a great... More

River Guide Casey took us out on a full day raft trip and it was AWESOME!!! Ours was an older and bit quieter group of family members than River Guide John's raft, but we had a really great time! Lunch was sandwiches and chips on the shore which was great for us. Casey had us in the water, in the... More
