5-Star Dinner on the Banks

Of the Yellowstone River

 

Our Scenic Dinner Floats are a wonderful way to enjoy the Yellowstone River and a 5-star dinner at the acclaimed Yellowstone Valley Grill in Paradise Valley.

You will meet your guide at Yellowstone Valley Lodge at your arranged time, and then be shuttled to the river to begin your 2-hour flatwater float back to the Grill for dinner.

Seated overlooking the Yellowstone River and Absaroka Beartooth Mountains, your dinner includes one alcoholic beverage, an appetizer, entree, and dessert.

We do encourage making your reservation as soon as you know your desired date. This restaurant is very popular and we want to be sure we can reserve your table.

What to Bring

Scenic floats are dry inside the boat… you simply float down the river and relax!

However, it may become chilly in the evening so we encourage you to bring a light jacket or fleece.

Your shoes are the only thing that may get wet (getting in and out of the raft), so sandals, water shoes, etc. are recommended.

Sunglasses, a hat, and sunblock are recommended.

Notes:

  • The Scenic Dinner Float is available from June 15 through August 15.
  • The Scenic Dinner Float is NOT available on Mondays.
  • Gratuity for guides and servers is not included.
  • Private Dinner Floats are available, please call for availability.

Scenic Float & Ride Deluxe

Imagine flowing down the Yellowstone river, eyes filled with wonder as your guide gently rows you through a flat water section of the river, the fresh river scent filling your lungs as you view awe-inspiring scenery.

Now imagine you're gently swaying in the saddle far above the river. Watching rafts pass far below you, the scent of wildflowers puts a tang in the fresh air of the Absaroka Mountains. The clip-clop of hooves and burbling streams provides a soundtrack for the stunning panoramas around you.

Now imagine both of these amazing experiences happening in one day!

Answer the call of serenity — all day long!
