If you are going to go rafting when visiting Glacier National Park, 1000% choose Glacier Raft Co. While the whole experience was wonderful with them, #1 was our guide, Trevor T. He is so knowledgeable, skilled, kind, and overall incredible! He deserves 6/5 stars, no joke. He really went above and beyond for us, and I wholeheartedly trust him, even when the rapids were a little more intense due to the melting snow and rain. We appreciated him so much that we went AGAIN with him later that week, so we got to have him twice.

Then as a whole, the rest of the staff was also great. (Also shoutout to Erik the manager for also being extra awesome!) Everyone was nice and helpful from checking us in, getting wetsuits (we got complementary wet suits because it was a cold day), providing funny commentary, and more.

This was such a fun and exciting experience that I loved getting to share with my mom. Highly recommend!

Excellent trip down river. Our guide was amazing and had us on different routes than the boat in front of us. The experience was amazing. Dinner afterwards was really good and the view was great.

This was definitely worth it. Our guide was so fun and had a lot of knowledge of our surroundings. It was so beautiful and a little challenging at times. We will def do this again.

MUST DO! We had McClure for our trip and he was funny, personable and knowledgeable. We felt completely safe with him as our guide. Our trip was September 20th and the weather was perfect because the sun was out. It was chilly when we went through shady parts of the river. I highly suggest renting their wetsuit booties for 5.00. Those that wore their own water shoes were wet and cold the entire time. The facility also provides rain jackets which we opted into. The bus ride from the rafting company was only a 15 minute drive. When we returned, it was a short walk back to the facility. Everyone in the boat was friendly and we had a great conversation.

Really great experience. Highly recommend. Our guide, Kenny, was wonderful, exceptionally experienced and skilled. Reservations were easy to make online. We actually had to change our date 24 hours out, which we did by text-a seamless experience. The company, arrival, brief, equipment distribution, shuttle loading, etc. is all very well organized. They have ample water shoes, life jackets, and helmets. Photos are terrific too. Eight people had registered for the Monday morning run. The company ran two boats with four guests and a guide for each, so the experience was more intimate, which was great. Some other outfitters might have skimped and put all eight in one boat. The water level was fairly low in mid-September, which we’d expected, so while there was some whitewater, it was largely smooth and very scenic. I can imagine it would be a wild ride in the summer with high water levels. Do this as a 1/2 day to give your hiking legs a break. If/when I come back to Glacier, I will seriously consider a multi-day/overnight trip with this company.

My husband booked this trip in advance of our trip because I love water activities!
This was a fun float & our guide (Matt Robb) was friendly & knowledgeable.
Dinner afterward was good & the guides serving us were cool & accomodating.
I recommended they install overhead shade for dinner, as the sun really blares in late afternoon August.

Beautiful Scenery, fun ride down the river. Water was crystal clear with a slight emerald tint. Supposedly one of the cleanest rivers in the US.

Our guide Tim was awesome!

We went on a 2-day float fishing trip on the Fladhead River - great experience - top notch service. The guides were outstanding - professional, knowledgeable, and safe. I will definitely recommend Glacier Raft Company to my friends and family.
