Absaroka River adventures is located at 113 West Grove Street ( Hwy. 420 ) in Absarokee. Just turn West off Main Street ( hwy. 78 ) between the Chrome Bar and the Stillwater Market, and look for us on the right.
We are offering two options. If you would like your own boat you will be charged for a full boat of 4 people. However, if you opt to not pay for your own boat you WILL have strangers in your boat with you.
If your group has 6+ people, standard rates apply (rates are based on age and number of people).
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 Wetsock 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.
If you have 4 or more people in your party you will have your own boat. Large groups who book under one may be mixed parties within your large group.-- ie. family reunions who book under 'Jane Doe' for 21ppl will have aproximately 3 boats for your group reguardless of group breakout. If you wish to have groups spread out more we are happy to work with you when arangements 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 (4 people) and insure your own boat. Opting out of this will mean you will be put on a boat with strangers.
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.
This is a June ONLY float! Due to water levels, and continuous excitement, we decided to limit the Full Day trips to June.
This varies due to water levels, however it is typically early to mid June when we are able to run the upper stretch of the river.
Our upper stillwater river trip is from Buffalo Jump Fishing Access to Cliff Swallow Fishing Access.
