We had a great time on our 1/2 day trip! Our guide, Doc was knowledgeable about the area and a really nice guy. Also, Andy, our guide-in-training, was really great to talk to. The check-in staff was friendly.

My wife and I are going to be vacationing in Glacier National Park the last week of June and would like to go on a float trip with our young (6, 10 and 12) sometime during that week. Our schedule is flexible except for one day, do we need to schedule this in advance or can we wait until that week to see what the weather looks like? Thanks and looking forward to rafting with you.

We booked ours well in advance but I think we could have just went and paid that day. They have lots of rafts and add more as needed. I know people were just showing up and paying for their trips when we were there. Your... More

So...we are on our way in just a couple of weeks. We will be there from 6/14-6/16. How cold is the water then? Will there be wet suits? We are not sure whether we should do the scenic calm one or the sporty fun one. How prevalent is the wildlife on the scenic one at this time of year? Can you see any wildlife on the one with rapids? And how rapid-y is the rapids at this time of year? We are in reasonably good shape--but I feel stuck about which one to do. Suggestions would help. Thank you!
