Owner description: Big Sky and Yellowstone Whitewater Rafting Trips! Experience Montana’s most wild and scenic rivers. We adventure on the Gallatin, Madison and Yellowstone Rivers. Come hang on for the thrill, or relax on a scenic float. We specialize in rafting, zipline, fishing and tubing trips suitable for families, first-timers, and fun-seekers. Montana Whitewater is locally owned and operated adventure company that can proudly say we do everything to make each trip the best possible experience. Getting to know our guests is one of the most important and enjoyable aspects of our profession. Our Yellowstone Zipline adventure park is also located here at our Gallatin River office near Big Sky Montana. You can choose to do a Classic 2-Hour Zip with 3 Lines or a Super 3.5-Hour Zip with 6 lines and more adventure elements. Introductory Fly Fishing Classes. If its rafting, fishing, ziplining, or Horseback Riding... we'd love to be your adventure outfitter in the Big Sky, Bozeman and Yellowstone Area.

Simply a BLAST. We were visiting Big Sky, Montana (My Wife, Cousin, and her husband.) When we happened upon Montana Whitewater Rafting. I had always wanted to W.W.R. I discussed this with my cousin (My Wife does NOT swim.) We talked about crossing another item off our Bucket List.
The " More Challenging Course " is a twelve (12) mile course that includes a mile & half Category IV section of the Gallatin River. Montana W.W. actually call this the " Mad Mile "
It was assume. Our guide Raleigh was EXCELLENT. None of the five (5) rafters had every been on a White Water Trip (5 Rookies). The trip went w/o incident. Everyone had a GREAT time.
During the trip we were priveledged to see a Bald Eagle. It swooped ot of the trees toward our rafts then back into a tree near the water's edge. The wing span must have been close to five (5) foot. I would not take the trip trying to see the eagle (s). Our guide said this was extremely rare.
Montana Whitewater has a professional photographer and they take excellent pctures. I ordered all the pictures.
I highly recommend Montana Whitewater Rafting to anyone in and around the Big Sky/Bozeman, Montana area.

We had such a fun time. Our guide was incredibly fun and knowledgeable, and the mad mile was a blast. Would definitely recommend.

We did a rafting trip this afternoon, geared toward a lower skill level. Everything from the reservation process through getting photos at the end was done well and in a friendly manner. We had a very good guide (Martina) who did a great job and kept us inside the raft and going forward! We would highly recommend this company for your rafting trip in this beautiful part of the country!

We did the Zip and Dip (zip line plus white water rafting) in Gallatin, and we were really impressed with both events. You do one activity in the morning, grab lunch at the on site restaurant, and then head out for your second event. It was a great way to rest between activities. Both trips were very well organized, and we were impressed with the knowledge and safety consciousness of all the guide. Tom was our white-water rafting guide, and he was super experienced. Tom always made us always feel safe, but also guided us into thrilling spots.
