Our guide, James, was so professional and patient. We felt completely safe at all times but had plenty of really strong rapids to contend with because of the spring meltoff. All guides were really enthusiastic. My husband and I were sorry when it was over. Worth every penny. Will do it again next time we visit, without a doubt.

This was the highlight of trip to West Glacier. We took the dinner trip and had about as much fun as I think you can possibly have. The rafting trip was just a blast and to finish it off with dinner on the banks of the river was incredible. We will do this again.

I am an experienced whitewater kayaker and was very impressed with the river knowledge and experience of our guide. Earlier season there was probably a little more flow and therefore higher grade rapids however the number of rapids and the way Nate had us paddle through the rapids lent itself to a very exciting time. My kids (10-11) were thrilled... More

My brother got married and Glacier Raft Company handled the logistics flawlessly. We stayed onsite, had the rehearsal dinner/ float trip and wedding at at the property. They managed to keep everything in line for 50 people. Would highly recommend using them!

I was camping in Glacier for the week in mid-August and saw the Rafting Office and the buses pulling out frequently so walked in and booked a noon trip the next day, Friday. We filled the bus up and headed out with the 4 or 5 guides standing at the front. Blake, who turned out to be my guide, introduced... More

My wife and I fished two days with Glacier Guides. We had a great guide named Tate Hopkins. One day was a very tough weather day where river was blown out. But next day we had a very good day fishing. NOW as any reasonable fisherman knows guides can not guarantee fish or good weather. But our guide made even... More

We had Andrew as a guide and he was excellent! What a fun time and a nice break from bicycling for morning!

We had a wonder experience this summer with a family of 50. We were able to set off between the regularly scheduled floats in late July. With the lower water levels at that time of the year it was a great adventure even for the 5 year older children but still enough rapids for us all to enjoy. Wonderful guides--we... More

Amy was our guide, she was great and made the trip a blast! She was very knowledgable about the animals, rivers, and the park itself. You will get wet but thats the fun part. We were the first boat to go through the rapids, since we were first we were able to watch the other boats go through the rapids.... More
