We really enjoyed the 2 hour boat trip. The scenery was very nice and we saw eagles, osprey, herons and other wildlife. The guide was knowledgeable and provided an informative commentary. WE brought a picnic and enjoyed it during the ride.

Enjoyable boat ride with very informative commentary...not a recording. We saw deer and eagles and many people fly fishing. It was a sunny day and a good excursion from Helena.

A beautiful day, wonderful scenery, knowledgeable and fun skipper, and a chance to take a break from the highway to the river.

As it says on the tin, a wonderful opportunity to follow a short way in the footsteps of Lewis and Clark. Informative commentary from the crew on a comfortable and inexpensive boar trip. Easy to find launch location just 20 minutese or so from Helena.

History, majestic mountain scenery, wildlife, comfortable boats, and a well-informed captain. If you come to Montana, you have to visit this area.

I doubt you can bring dogs except service dogs in the boats. Please don't bring them or leave them in your car.

Denise sorry for the delay. They have two boats. They each probably hold 50-75 people. They do take reservations which I would recommend. You can do it on line. When we went a tour bus arrived right after us so we were... More
