I have done whitewater rafting trips before but nothing like this. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Our guide Brent was super knowledgeable and made for a great time. The rafting adventure lasted more than a hour and you never wanted it to end. These are lvl 4 rapids we are talking about here! The only place... More

We did the regular zip-lining up in the hills, quite high up and was lengthy. Got our money's worth for sure! The two young guys who were our guides were hysterical! They made it so much fun for those of us who were a bit nervous. Youngest was 9 and he did great. Lots of laughs, beautiful scenery and just... More

Our family of five went white water rafting on the last day of our road trip out West. We did the last trip of the day on the Gallatin River. We hadn't done this before and had some safety concerns. Our guide (Hatter) was awesome, and we felt very safe while having a fantastic time! Would definitely recommend.

My daughter and I went on a half day rafting. It was our first time. We were fortunate to have Merv as our guide. He taught us how to synchronize our rowing and the timing as we hit the rapids. We had a blast!

Afternoon raft on Gallatin River in early September still exciting despite low water levels vs early June. Guides very capable and fully certified. Gallatin River canyon is one of best scenic raft trips in USA. Cost moderate; all essential gear provided. Anyone who visits Bozeman area should consider this delightful trip down a famous River.

Great guides, great rapids, that do depend on the season, and beautiful Montana at your disposal. Even when the water isn't rushing you'll be glad you took the time to enjoy!

Our morning rafting trip down the Galletin was the highlight of our time in Montana. The experience was way different from our two advance calls for information. The guides insisted on wet suits for all.....ugh......but time proved that they were so needed. Water levels were low and we understood it was to be an easy outing. We found the level... More
