My adventurous water-loving boys, ages 6 and 8 (both 60 lbs), LOVED rafting on our half-day whitewater trip with Patrick recently. They had huge smiles the whole time, and could not wait for more. After the trip, they said, "Can we go 5 more times?!?" Definitely would recommend this company...family friendly, kids can wear wetsuits to keep a bit warmer, the kids sit in middle so I felt better :), and the pics they take for us at one of the rapids locations are PRICELESS. :) The boys are STILL talking about that day!

We had a great family rafting trip! Our guide Peter was awesome. If you are looking for an adventure in an amazing setting don't skip this. We did a half day trip and dinner. Kudos to both Peter and Liz for cooking up an amazing dinner in a thunderstorm!

I and six other family members took the 2 hour rafting excursion with Glacier Raft Co. It was one of the highlights of our Glacier Park visit. The Glacier Raft Co. was very well organized. They did a superb job of managing numerous customers that were taking three different raft rides with no confusion. They also did a great job getting parties of different sizes assigned to the same raft. The rafts, vests, equipment, etc. were first class. But, overwhelmingly the talent of the operation were the Raft Guides. There was no doubt that they were professionally trained, highly qualified, and enthusiastic. Their conduct, I am certain, quieted the fears of even the most anxious tourists. We were very fortunate to have had Dave Walter as our guide; he was impressive! His instructions were easy to understand, his briefing regarding possible unintended mishaps (eg. leaving the raft) were thorough - leaving no doubt that we were in capable hands. While guiding the raft and delivering instructions, he also talked about the history of the river, the flood of '64, the forest fires, kayaking and trout fishing. He also kept a close eye on the three rafts that followed us. Dave was friendly and personable throughout the trip, all while maintaining the safety of our raft ride. To Dave and the Glacier Raft Co. - well done. I highly recommend anyone visiting Glacier National Park to include this adventure in your itinerary.
