Half Day River Trip: Whitewater River Trip Missoula

Looking to spend a few hours in the great outdoors away from it all? This is your Whitewater River Trip Missoula! World class, family friendly, this trip is the best one in the state due to the volume, wildlife, location, and diversity of watershed and river features.

During the spring runoff in May and early June this river offers Class III– IV whitewater rafting and rafters must be at least 16 years old. This is the best in whitewater rafting Missoula Valley and the surrounding area. We have few guides that we feel comfortable bringing our families down in May and June and children must be 8 years and older at this time.

From July through October, the rapids are Class II–Class III and most ages are welcome! We recommend 6 years old and up and all of our staff are well suited to take your family down the river.

Listed below are a few items to bring on the river trip. We use top-of-the-line, self-bailing rafts that can be propelled by a team of paddlers or a single guide with oars. Family members of most ages and skill levels are welcome. Most of our rafts hold 6 people, some hold 7 or 8. We do not pack our rafts and this is our absolute threshold for a good quality time without tons of people around you on a raft.

Any individuals requiring special needs will receive our full caring attention.

We can provide fully catered lunches (featuring fresh natural foods and creative cooking) for your raft trip if you’d like to do the full day adventure. Otherwise, pack a snack and your lunch in your car to eat after your trip!
