40 Years of Whitewater Thrills and Counting...
Experience the best rafting trips on the Yellowstone River
The picturesque Yellowstone River outside Gardiner, Montana flows and churns along the north boundary of Yellowstone National Park.
When you float the whitewater, you'll get a natural roller coaster ride to remember through Yellowstone country's stunning terrain.
Check in with our friendly staff at our office to gear up for your unforgettable day.
A short drive will take you to the river. There, your guide will unlock the river's fun and magic after a brief paddling and safety instruction session.
We were quite anxious. But our terrific guide took great care of us. The kids (9 and 7) loved the rapids and were begging for more. We are definitely coming back.

We had family from age 12 to almost 80 on our raft and everyone felt safe and had so much fun.
