My husband and I enjoyed the Scenic Raft tour! All of the staff was excellent and the river was great! It's a rear oar/paddle boat combo. Very cool. The guide could do everything by themselves or have the guests help. Great boat! I love anything on the water and enjoyed the relaxing experience. My husband is not a water boy, but he felt safe and comfortable on this trip and enjoyed it as well!

We took the morning half-day float. Flathead river. Relaxing and full of nature. Rafts of six, floating 6 miles down river. Short stop in a pebble island. Water was 59 degrees. Wetsuits provided.

Glacier Raft Company’s Float Tour is a fun, enjoyable, and relaxing tour. No rapids. Gentle float for about 6 miles with a stop at a pebble island midway. You get a chance to wade (or swim if you are adventurous!) in the 50 degree water. Host Emily and Guide Kenny were excellent tour guides!

I booked a half-day scenic float on a whim because I was looking for a budget friendly activity with a knowledge guide in Glacier park. I could not have had a better experience with these guys-it was by far the favorite part of my entire trip to NW Montana. The tour guides were hilarious & had so much knowledge of the park and nearby towns, and were very easy to converse with while floating the river. They kept us safe and paddled us down the river for over 2 hours. The views itself were gorgeous, we even saw a pack of 20* elk run out into the river-it was breathtaking. I would highly highly recommend this activity to anyone even slightly interested. I don’t know when I’ll be in MT again, but im 100% booking this tour if I’m ever back in the area!

Beautiful educational float trip. Glacier raft Company even had hot chocolate for us at end of the trip. Staff was kind and knowledgeable. We had our 3 and 4 year old grandsons with us and they loved the trip.

Great experience with the Glacier Raft Company - we came pretty late in the season (towards end of September) so there wasn't much available but GRC had a scenic float. The river was pretty low, so the time on the water felt slower, but the guide was funny, knowledgeable, and the views of Glacier were beautiful. All around a great, safe, and fun experience!

The water is low this time of year, so the rapids were grade 1 and 2. We had a wonderful guide who grew up in the area and therefore knew about history and geography of area. He also had lots of stories to tell and did it well. Perfect family trip with an experienced guide.

Got in on the last day of the season for water/rafting trips. Easy to make reservations on-line. Everything was well organized, the number of people on each raft evenly distributed and the guide was very knowledgeable of sites on the trip.

We went late in the season so not many/any rapids. But the float was still lovely, and our guide was fun and friendly, and made sure we all had fun.

Good time, well run, Chelsie was the BEST! Nearing the end of the season and, one with lower water flows, made for a pretty tame ride but the scenery and overall experience was great!

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback! We agree, Chelsie is pretty specular and we are glad to hear that despite low water conditions that you got to enjoy beautiful fall colors on our Wild and Scenic Middle Fork of the Flathead! Hope you will join us for higher water a little earlier in our season in the future!
