Half Day River Trip: Whitewater River Trip Missoula

Whitewater River Trip Missoula

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 and children must be 8 years and older at this time.

From July through October, the rapids are Class II–Class III and all ages are welcome. We recommend 6 years old and up.


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 8.

Any individuals requiring special needs will receive our full caring attention. We have special pricing for children (ages 6-17).

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!
