Our family of 5, including a 4 year old, all took the Scenic River rafting trip. Everyone had so much fun! When granddaughter gets old enough, we will go back and do the wild water trip! I have rafted with many of the countries best rafting companies, and I would rate the Yellowstone Rafting Company amoung the best. Really impressed... More

I had never been Whitewater Rafting before and was a little apprehensive during the safety brief. However this all added to the sense of anticipation. There were 11 of us and Captain Jack and it was a thrill from start to finish. THe whole thing lasted about 2 hours but it flew by. The guides were fun and enthusiastic and... More

We decided to try rafting with young children (ages 4-8) and seniors and couldn't be more pleased with Yellowstone Raft Company. I can't compare them to other local rafting companies, but we were satisfied. Do your homework to get the best rates and experience! Don't expect class 4 or 5 rapids. Even the class 3 rapids are quite mild and... More

Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids ages 5 & 6) did the 2 hour scenic trip. We had a great time. Our guide, Ben, did a great job. It was a fun trip down the river and the kids loved swimming in the river. I would recommend this trip to families with young children.

I was impressed with this company. We had met a young lady the previous evening and were talking about going on one of the raft excursions. Found out she worked for this company and would be happy to be our guide the next day if we so wished. We liked her and were very happy we did so. This was... More

Ask for Carter and you'll have a great time on the River. My family had a blast. The staff was excellent, highly recommend this outfit.

Our Scout Troop traveled to Yellowstone and spent 2 days doing whitewater with Yellowstone Raft. They were extremely helpful and accommodating to our large group (26 scouts, 14 adults). The guides were fun for the boys, and informative for the adults. It was a wonderful day on the river, and we saw several bald eagles. Ask for Jack the guide... More

My family couldn't have been happier with our experience with the Yellowstone Raft company. Not only did we always feel safe in our gear, equipment and knowledgeable guides, but we were entertained by their humor and happy personalities. Monica was our guide and was a particular pleasure, although it didn't seem there was a bad choice in the bunch. Couldn't... More

We had a blast! Took kayaks down the rapids the first half and then jumped in a raft for the second half. Guides were fun, knowledgable of the area, and went out of their way to make sure we had a great (and safe) time. Very patient with our complete lack of knowledge of kayaks. We'd definitely use this company... More
