What To Bring
Wear shoes you won’t mind getting wet- or borrow booties from us. See our packing list for more information about what you’ll need.
Safety is always our #1 priority. Guides train in river rescue techniques, first aid, and more. Many guides return year after year. If conditions call for wetsuits and river shoes, or if you would prefer to wear splash gear, it is always available at no extra cost. Minimum age for our Scenic Float Trip is 3 years old.
Please note that during spring runoff, i.e. in May and early-mid June, wetsuits may be required on scenic floats. It’s always a good idea to bring a bathing suit with you to wear under a wetsuit.

Let’s Go Rafting!
If you are not interested in exploring the whitewater section but would like to enjoy the river, this mellow Glacier Park dinner float is for you!
First, float the scenic section of the Middle Fork of the Flathead, from West Glacier to Blankenship Bridge. Next, pass through a steep, walled canyon. Finally, you’ll see where the Middle and North Forks of the Flathead come together to form the southern tip of Glacier National Park. This is a relaxing trip for almost all age groups, 3 years and up. The float time is approximately 2 hours long. After your Glacier Park dinner float trip, return to our campus. Then, it’s time for dinner!
