This was the highlight of our Montana vacation with two teenage grandsons. I felt safe with our guide Matt,(even with a couple of adrenaline rushes). Our grandsons texted, tweeted and snap chatted their friends about the "most awesome and exciting trip ever"! Thank you Matt...More

Best time ever! We've never been whitewater rafting before, but our guide James L.P. made this adventure fun and safe for our family. We went through quite a few rapids, which were a blast. We also spotted a black bear up on the mountain.More

Great rafting company!! Everything was excellent; from the initial arrival, getting wet suits, the bus ride to drop off location, and the actual rafting was superb!

My wife and I are going to be vacationing in Glacier National Park the last week of June and would like to go on a float trip with our young (6, 10 and 12) sometime during that week. Our schedule is flexible except for one day, do we need to schedule this in advance or can we wait until that week to see what the weather looks like? Thanks and looking forward to rafting with you.

We booked ours well in advance but I think we could have just went and paid that day. They have lots of rafts and add more as needed. I know people were just showing up and paying for their trips when we were there. Your... More

So...we are on our way in just a couple of weeks. We will be there from 6/14-6/16. How cold is the water then? Will there be wet suits? We are not sure whether we should do the scenic calm one or the sporty fun one. How prevalent is the wildlife on the scenic one at this time of year? Can you see any wildlife on the one with rapids? And how rapid-y is the rapids at this time of year? We are in reasonably good shape--but I feel stuck about which one to do. Suggestions would help. Thank you!
