rafting out of Gardiner??

My wife and I want to take a full-day scenic raft ride out of Gardiner. Our research has us looking at Big Sky Whitewater which seems to offer what we want at a fair price. Unfortunately the phone numbers on their website won't get me through to them. Does anyone have a phone number for them that works? Can anyone recommend a different company that offers all-day scenic raft rides? thanks

I prefer the raft trips on the Snake River in the GT. I think you get superior wildlife and scenery. I think Flying Pig does that out of Gardiner. If you are in the Jackson area then do a trip there. I think you will be glad that you did.

We have a half day trip booked with Wild West Rafting out of Gardiner: http://www.wildwestrafting.com/whitewater.htm

They also have full day trips.

I had found them through a favorable recommendation on this site from a forum posting a year or two ago. Rafting out of Jackson seems to be favored but going from Gardiner better meshed with our plans for this year.

I don't have any personal experience with the rafting companies in Gardiner, but I have heard good things about Big Sky. I would suggest emailing them if you can't get through on the phone numbers they list.

Here is a link to some other companies in the Gardiner area: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&um=1&ie=UTF-8&q=river+rafting+gardiner+montana&fb=1&split=1&gl=us&view=text&ei=Y7IvSqmaIJP6tAPz4cC0CA&sa=X&oi=local_group&ct=more-results&cd=2&resnum=1

Well, that didn't work - Sorry!

If you haven't done it already, Google "river rafting Gardiner Montana" and there will be links to several companies.

Here's the one for Flying Pig: http://flyingpigrafting.com/

Good Luck!

Just wanted to report back that we did our 1/2 day trip last Sunday with Wild West and it was awesome! Super nice owners and staff. Well organized and very professional. One of the highlights of our entire vacation.
