We are offering two options. If you would like your own boat you will be charged for a full boat of 4 people please make arrangements ahead of time (72 hours). However, if you opt to not pay for your own boat you WILL have others in your boat with you.
If your group has 6+ people, standard rates apply (rates are based on age and number of people).
If your group has 7+ people, standard rates apply (rates are based on age and number of people). A non-Refundable deposit is required for large groups. If your group size changes by more than 1 person we need to know 72 hours in advance so that we can accomidate for your group.
If you have a large group and you know 72 hours in advance your group size will be smaller we are happy to work with you. Within 48 hours and you may be charged the full rate for everyone on the reservation.
We suggest wearing comfortable quick drying clothing such as swimsuits, shorts and quick-dry rash guard type shirts. Soft-soled shoes or water sandals, hat, sunglasses and sunscreen are also recommended. On cooler days, synthetic layers for during or after the trip are a great idea.
We provide top quality, self-bailing rafts, round trip transportation from Absarokee, a cooler for your beverages (if you ask), splash jackets and pants, U.S. coast guard approved life jackets which must be worn at all times and helmets for the Class III section. Wetsuits and Wet sock Booties are available to rent for chilly days. We also have a number of changing rooms on site for your convenience before and after your trip.
It doesn't matter! We take many non-swimmers down the river each year. All passengers are required to wear life jackets. In addition, our guides are trained and well versed in river safety.
Children, as well as Seniors, are very welcome. Minimum age will vary with water conditions. Children's rates apply to those 12 and under. Seniors 65 and over save $5 off on our standard half day raft trip.
The time on the river lasts around 2 hours for a Half Day Trip, depending on the water level and the section of the river we are floating that day.
A Full Day Trip usually takes about 5 hours, including a lunch stop.
Credit Cards are taken to book your reservation. If you cancel or change your reservation numbers prior to 48 hours in advance of your trip, the card on file will not be charged. Between 48 and 24 hours some refund may be issued. Day of cancelations or No Shows are subject to full charges.
If you have 4 or more people in your party you are likely to have your own boat, however it is not guaranteed. If you want your own boat be sure to inquire prior to your trip (at least 72 Hours in advance).
Large groups who book under one may be mixed parties within your large group. -- i.e... family reunions who book under 'Jane Doe' for 21ppl will have approximately 3 boats for your group regardless of group breakout. If you wish to have your group spread out more, we are happy to work with you when arrangements are made ahead of time (at least 72 Hours in advance).
Groups of less than 4 people have the option to pay for an entire boat if arranged ahead of time (4 people) and insure your own boat. Opting out of this will mean you will be put on a boat with others.
If you enjoy your river ride, please tip your guide! They sure appreciate it...
We can provide a soft-sided cooler for any snacks/beverages you want on the water. We do allow alcohol, but have a set of strict guidlines. For your safety and the safety of our guides, no glass bottles, no hard liquor, and please enjoy alcohol in moderation.
