Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Your trip begins with check-in at the rafting office thirty minutes prior to departure. It's best to bring a swimsuit or clothes you might not mind getting wet in, if you and your party so choose. Changing rooms are available to anyone who needs them. After check-in, you are shuttled to the river, where you will receive a life jacket, pose for a family photo and then be on your way!

    This scenic trip is the perfect rafting option for those families who have members that may be too young for whitewater rafting. A guide will expertly row your raft down the river, avoiding major rapids but hitting a few fun splashes, and allow you to swim, if you'd like. Bring your waterproof cameras along to ensure you capture every moment. It is not uncommon to see wildlife such as Osprey birds, geese, deer and maybe even an eagle. Plus, the beautiful Gallatin and Absaroka mountains sit to the east of the Yellowstone River and provide a spectacular view. At the end of your float you will get picked up and brought back to the office where you checked in.

    We were recently in Yellowstone and were looking for a fun adventure for our family of five (kids 11, 7 and 3) and it seemed our three-year-old was too young for almost everything. I came across this and thought our oldest might be a bit bored but figured at least it was
