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

This was our first white water rafting experience, and our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 boys ages 11 and 7) had a blast! The weather wasn't great, but our guide, Hannah, made the best of it and got us through with no issues. She was knowledgeable not only about the safety procedures on the raft but also about the...

Yellowstone Raft Company was perfect from start to finish. The friendly staff was top notch! Our guide, John, was professional yet fun. He kept our kids (18, 15, and 12) laughing and engaged throughout the entire trip. He was very knowledgable about the area and conversation was easy. We would definitely book with Yellowstone Raft Company again!

Patient too with my not so great cell service! The end of July weather didn't cooperate, so we had a cold... More

Yellowstone Raft Company was perfect for our 1st family rafting adventure. The staff was knowledgeable (about safety and the river), friendly and kept us laughing. Our kids (12 & 9) said it was their favorite part of our Yellowstone vacation. We will definitely be back!

For several years I have taken students to Yellowstone NP as part of a summer field course. Part of the course includes some down time to raft the Yellowstone River. After researching rafting providers in the area I chose Yellowstone Raft Company and this decision has proven to be a good one. YRC has consistently provided an excellent rafting experience... More

In the second trip there were 10 of us ranging in age 7 to 60 and we had a blast! Both times were full day trips -- our guide Clancy was fantastic! Sharing stories of... More

A perfect afternoon hosted by a company that cares about customer service. Our guide, Casey, was awesome--funny, knowledgeable, and safety-minded. The trip was just perfect for our family. The rapids were enough to be exciting for our 13-year-old, but not too worrisome for our seven-year-old. This excursion will remain a highlight of our Yellowstone vacation.
