We love outdoor activities and we chose to do this rafting trip it was my wife's first time rafting and this was perfect. They had class III rapids in some areas, rolling water in others and smooth water where you can actually just jump in the water and ride next to the raft. If you're adventurous you can ride the...

Canadians rafting the Yellowstone river!! Booked online, very easy. Guides were phenomenal, felt safe the entire day! Do not have enough good things to say about our trip! The one thing I might change is that we did a lot of calm-water floating between rapids, but our guide (Clancy) was very knowledgeable about the area and the mountains, which made... More

From the time we first booked the trip to getting to the take out on the river, it was the highlight of our trip to the area. I've no doubt all the guides are great, but EMILY was truly amazing! The trip down the river and running the rapids was fun for all of us and she made it spectacular.... More

Our guide Emily was informative, skilled and really fun. While there is so much to do in Yellowstone, it would be a huge miss to not raft with these guys. It was the best part of our trip.

This was the first time rafting with our two teenagers who loved it. Our 17 year old wanted to do it again the next day. Kyle was a superb guide who was casual yet professional . He was friendly and very capable. Robin helped us plan our day well by communicating how long it would take from west yellowstone to... More

A great day on the water and our guide Jason was awesome. It was especially meaningful since he had some grasp of ASL for one of our group who was deaf. Each one of our family of 13 from age 4-69 had a great trip!

So glad we decided to stay an extra day and do this raft trip. We had such a great time. They were very accommodating to our 9 person group. Kayla and Jason were great guides. Worth every penny!

Booked the paddle and saddle through Yellowstone Raft Company. Had a group of 13. Marley at Specimen Creek Horseback riding was phenomenal. The views were gorgeous and my family loved the experience. We had 2 boats:guides for our group. My families guide was very knowledgeable about the region/river. We asked lots of questions about the area. The river was cloudy... More

We had 6 in our family ages 17-72 and everyone had a great time. Something we will talk about for years! The staff was very welcoming and knowledgable. From all the questions we had over the phone to the end of the trip, they were great. Our guide, Kyle (who was awesome) went over safety precautions and what to do... More

The guides and the crew were awesome. We did get caught in a hail storm but it passed quickly. The rapids were pretty tame for my taste but was still a great time for a fair price.
