  • Raft Guide

    Gardiner, Montana

    We run 8 and 18 mile whitewater trips and Scenic Floats 7 days a week. Starting wage for Guides is $40 per trip plus tips, if you do the 18 mile it is $80 + lunch. If you have guiding experience or a CDL please be sure to elaborate on that in your resume. You can expect to take 1-3 trips daily. Staff is paid bi-weekly and there a Pro Deals available through NRS and Chaco.

    All Guides must have Swiftwater Rescue and First Aid/CPR Certification. If you do not have this or need to renew, you can do so here. We use oars on Scenic Floats, The 18 Mile and for high water, otherwise we do use Guide Sticks. At the least, Guides should have their own river shoes, helmet, knife and PFD. You can borrow neoprene for training when the water is cold.

    We typically work 7 days a week because our season is so short and most staff want to make as much money as possible. Days off are of course allowed but unless they are already scheduled you must request them. No multi day vacations are allowed.

    This is a really fun job in a very beautiful place meeting people from all around The World! Guiding on The Yellowstone River is something that you can look back on as some of the best days of your life AND it's a great workout!
