This was a great adventure. Glacier Raft Company is a professional, well run organization as everything from the office to the guide was handled to perfection and it was obvious everyone enjoys working there. The rafting trip had just enough challenges to make it exciting yet a family can also enjoy it. The guide, Tate, was exceptional with great safety... More

We've been to Glacier on more than one occasion but this was our first trip to Glacier Raft Company. We discovered this place because one of their guides is from my neighborhood and we have a mutual friend raves about both his guiding ability and the Glacier Raft Company. Persuaded, we spent a weekend staying in one of their two-bedroom... More

My kids and husband had a blast and cannot wait to go back. Their only complaint was that their guide was from North Carolina or something like. It would be nice to have someone local but maybe that is too much to ask for.

I had never rafted before and admit I was a little nervous. Our boat included four children under 15, so I was put at ease before we left. Our guide "Dundee" was knowledgeable, polite and funny. My group had five adults, but we were paired with a father with four misbehaved and insolent children. "Dundee" was still great and professional... More

I have done plenty of kayaking over the past 15 years. This was one of the best paddling experiences I have known. I chose to run the river in a Duckie (inflatable kayak). The guides gave me specific instructions for each rapid so I could have the best chance for success. The cameraman captured some great shots. Some of those... More

This is the second time our family has used Glacier Raft Company. We had quite a large number of people (11 adults, 1 child) for the half day trip. On the bus ride to the launch site they asked if we could split up 10 + 2 with another group, to which we responded not unless we have to (family... More

My wife, two boys (8 and 6) did the half day outing this summer. We could not have had a better time. Although I have been on rougher whitewater before, the setting was beautiful and our guide was fantastic. Best of all, it was the first time our kids had been whitewater rafting, and they loved it. The guide did... More

Sam, our tour guide was very insightful and fun to sit with. The organization was organized and I would recommend them to anyone in Glacier.

Great guide and overall good value. The river just does not offer much excitement so it seems like an expensive float. Seems better for families with kids

I have taken quite a few raft trips, and this was one of the busiest I have ever seen. I thought it would be discouraging because of all of the people, but the program is very well designed to get rafters organized, safely onto the water, safely down the river, and back out again. The water was low, but Travis,... More
