Glacier National Park Whitewater Trip Description – Sport Boat
Enjoy our exclusive Sport Half Day Glacier National Park whitewater rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the Flathead River. Why is our Sport trip special? The small number of rafters– not more than 9 — allows for a more intimate experience with the river and a lighter, uncrowded boat. Paddle and become part of the crew that maneuvers the raft through the 9 named rapids by following the simple commands of the guide. Or, if you’d rather sit back and relax on this federally protected Wild and Scenic River, that’s great, too! The trip winds about 8 miles through the John F. Stevens Canyon. The rapids are typically rated class II and III, making for a fun and splashy whitewater rafting adventure!

Be sure to wear clothes you won’t mind getting wet. See our Packing List – Day Trips page for more information about what you will need for the trip.
Arrive at 30 minutes prior to departure to meet your guide and get fitted for lifejackets, helmets, and any other necessary equipment. If you have an epi-pen or other medication, your guide can stow it safely for you in a dry bag. Next, take a short bus ride — approximately 20 minutes — to the river put in. Your guide will launch the boat there and you’ll be floating down the stunning Wild and Scenic Middle Fork of the Flathead River!
The trip starts off on a mellow section of the river, giving you plenty of time to learn to paddle and to adjust to being on the water. The rapids come towards the end of the trip, and photographs of each boat are taken in the rapid called Bonecrusher. Float under Glacier National Park’s historic Belton Bridge towards the end of the trip. Your guide will take the raft out of the water in West Glacier. From there, it’s a 5 minute bus ride back to where you started.
The length of the trip depends on the river flow. In June through early July, trips last about 2.5 hours. Mid-July through early August, about 3 hours. Mid-August through the end of season, approximately 3.5 hours.
No experience necessary.
No maximum weight, but must be able to buckle a 58″ chest life jacket.
