The trip begins with check-in at the rafting office in Gardiner, Montana, thirty minutes prior to departure. Once everyone is changed into wetsuits or other provided water gear, guides will shuttle you to the river where you will learn about water safety. From there, you board your raft and paddle off! You will see 18 miles of the beautiful Yellowstone River and experience Class II, III and even a Class IV depending on the time of the year. The Gallatin National Forest boarders the Yellowstone to your left and you will have plenty of scenic viewing opportunity. Your guide will even let you jump in for a swim! About 20 minutes into your trip, you can expect to be photographed by a professional photographer.
Halfway through the excursion, your party will take a break and enjoy a homemade picnic lunch. Once lunch is finished, it's off through Yankee Jim Canyon for the last leg of the adventure.
As your trip draws to a close, guides pick you up and drive 20 minutes back to Gardiner where you can change out of your river garb, view your photos and purchase other mementos from your trip.
