Wildwater is a family-owned and operated company.  We treat our guides and guests like our family!  No previous experience is required but we do want to hire team players that are ready to learn and constantly striving to be better.

Raft Guide: 
You have the largest impact on our Guest’s experience down the river.  While this job is both fun and rewarding, it is also physically demanding—Guides must be in decent physical condition.  Training is unpaid but provided at no cost.  Discounts are available for the required gear.  Must be at least 18 years old to guide.

The season starts in late March and runs through late November, with our peak season from June-August. 

Team housing is available at all locations. 

We successfully implemented COVID-19 safety protocols last summer and plan to continue with those protocols in 2021.
