Family Friendly Gallatin River Whitewater Rafting

Looking for some whitewater while avoiding white-knuckle rapids? The 3 hour Upper Half Day trip is perfect for families, first-timers who are timid, or for those who aren’t strong swimmers – especially in June when we have high water. Enjoy fun rapids such as Hilarity Hole, Screaming Left, and Killer Fang. These rapids offer plenty of splashes and relatively easy navigation without the challenge of long rapids like the Mad Mile. This trip is packed with splashes and smiles!

Ziplining across the Beautiful Gallatin River

Our Gallatin River ZipLine is located on Highway 191 between Bozeman and Big Sky, Montana, just over an hour drive from West Yellowstone. The dramatic scenery includes towering limestone cliffs, pine forests, and a rushing river. Tours start by ascending sky bridges to a tree platform 55 ft in the air, as well as including two zips across the beautiful Gallatin River.

Our guide was great, straightforward, informative and allowed us to fly fish in the river quite awhile! I feel like it was a private lesson as my husband and I were her only participants! No complaints! I would have liked to catch a fish, but I did have one on my hook! Its beautiful scenery and now I am hooked on fly fishing! I am less intimidated now to attempt this new sport!

First time whitewater rafters. Concerned about the trip’s description being a class 3 or 4 but we went in Sept with the lower water levels. They say that it is really just a 2 or 3 that time of year. It was one of the funniest things done on the trip for my 15 year old son. He and my wife both had a blast and Montana Whitewater were friendly and very organized. Would definitely recommend to also get the photo package (an additional $40 to $50 for the full package for all the action photos).

We did a 2 person kayak; I recommend doing a single person kayak as it is easier to maneuver. They supplied the necessary gear: helmet, life vest, wet suit, and boots. The office will hold on to your keys so they don't get wet; keep everything else you don't want to get wet in your car. Our guides we very helpful with giving us safety tips and how to maneuver at certain points of the river. I recommend doing the kayak over the boat if you want more of a hand off experience. The only kayaking experience we had was from kayaking in Bozeman on a lazy river a few days prior. We went on 9/19/20; the river wasn't flowing too fast but there were parts of the river where the water sped up and there were a lot of waves. The water was very cold as well, as I was knocked out of the kayak when we hit a wave going sideways. Not a big deal, just grabbed on to the kayak, floated on my back with my feet up until we could get to the bank and I hopped back in (shows how important to listen to your guides and read all the safety sheet).
