My extended family of 10 had originally signed up months in advance with a large rafting company in the Gardiner area. The company called the morning of our scheduled trip to cancel and referred us to River Source. We consider ourselves so fortunate for the switch. River Source is a smaller company and offers more personalized service. The owners are... More

We really enjoyed our rafting trip on the Gardiner River. The staff was very professional and made sure everything was done with safety in mind. This was our first rafting trip and they made us feel very comfortable and safe. We loved they way we were treated and we had so much fun. What a great experience. I can highly... More

We took a delightful trip down the Yellowstone river with Jimmy our guide. We weren't with tons of other rafts as we had seen further down the river which made it nice! Jimmy was great, telling us stories of the river and giving us a scenic ride with awesome bouts through the Rapids. Highly recommend this company.

We really enjoyed our experience with Jimmy, our guide, on the fun and beautiful blue raft floating and paddling and some adventures on Yellowstone River. Jimmy educated us on safety, how to paddle, as well as telling us some stories about the river at various points and some historic events about the river and the canyon. Then he took us... More

Great crew of people all around. Guide was great and did a wonderful job entertaining on the float, owner was friendly and welcoming, and reservation/shot/shuttle driver was helpful and very nice. All the gear, safety equipment, life jackets, raft, shuttle van, wet suit, and rafting clothing was top quality and clean, no nasty "not sure and don't want to know... More

Jimmy and Orion were great! They took me and my friend out for a private, guided trip. They were both attentive, helpful, positive and encouraging. I was on my paddleboard and was a little out of my comfort zone on the stretch we did but felt totally and completely safe with them. I fell off once and they were both... More

In the past 20 years, I've spent a lot of time on the river, but not much of that time has been spent paddling whitewater. Jimmy and Orion (spelling?) took my friend and I down the town stretch on the Yellowstone, with class 3 Rapids. It was perfect. They pointed out lines, took me through the big waves I wanted...

I chose this company for our rafting excursion on June 20th because of the price & location. Unlike their competitors who are in the town of Gardiner, they are located 9 miles north & are much closer to the whitewater of Yankee Jim Canyon. They launch right from their facility & bring you back in a large van. Six of... More
