We took the scenic float out of Chico Hot Springs. The people were profoundly nice and our guide, Abram, was amazing. Due to an injury, one of us could not paddle in a white water boat, so we opted for the scenic float. Abram had a wealth of knowledge about the area and was a delight to be with for the ride. My family really likes to swim, so , when possible, we all jumped in the water and floated next to the boat. We felt safe the whole time - Abram pulled us back into the boat each time the water was about to get too shallow or rocky to swim. He was so kind to my two children (16 and 13) in addition to being a skilled boat guide. Unlike the previous reviewer, our trip was extended a few minutes so that we would have plenty of time to enjoy the river. This was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this company.

The folks at Paradise Rafting are as nice as I have met in my travels. Happy and full of fun. Vincent, Dan, Sarah, and Joe are great. The Yellowstone River in mid-August isn't an overwhelming challenge, but a good mix of class 2 and 3's rapids spread down a 7 mile stretch. Worth the 3 hour investment.

We took the ride out of Gardiner, great guides and safe for 6 and 8 yr old. Our only complaint was the ride was advertised as 2or3 hours; half day trip. It was about an hour; because they said the water was high? Regardless, we had a good time.

While vacationing in Montana, we wanted to really experience the Yellowstone River and decided to take a 2 hr float trip with Paradise Adventure Co. Little did we realize it would become the highlight of our vacation. Our guide, Patrik, did all of the work and narrated as we took in the breathtaking scenery. As much as I thought I could experience the river from the banks of various parks, there is nothing like riding it. We saw wildlife (deer, bald eagle, ospreys) it would have been difficult to view from any shore, and we saw them in action, fishing, perching, and caring for their young. Feeling the curves and currents of the river, seeing the clear waters, breathing the fresh air, and consuming the magnificent mountains is a rush like no other. And all the while, we felt perfectly safe under Patrik's masterful steering. It was like our own personal, National Geographic special. Patrik is an interesting guide with a lot of wildlife experience and information about the area. Our trip would not have been the same had we not taken this tour. We will remember it for a lifetime, but intend to return for a rafting adventure soon. After seeing the softer side of the Yellowstone, we're ready for some rapids! Note: the float trip is calm enough for nearly anyone who can remain seated without back support. You can find them at Chico Hot Springs Resort in Pray, MT, about 45 minutes south of Bozeman. You don't have to be guest at Chico to use them. It's also convenient to the North Yellowstone Park area. paradiserafting.com
