This Whitewater Rafting Half Day River Trip is a 12 mile river trip providing 15 rapids and breath taking scenery down the Alberton Gorge on the Clark Fork River. The whitewater rafting trips start at 9AM, 1pm, and 4:30PM. A great three hour river adventure with no stop for lunch. This trip is considered world class family friendly and we’ve been rafting it for over 15 years!
You will meet at the Adventure Missoula shop located in Cyr, Montana (exit 70 off of I-90). Your friendly guides who will be taking you whitewater rafting will greet you with the adequate gear needed for the raft trip. Once you are outfitted, you will walk down to the put in and the river trip will begin! The river will greet you with class I and II rapids. Here you will practice paddle strokes, laugh with peers, and look upon the beautiful wildlife that frequent the Upper Gorge.
When the purple cliffs come into vision, you will be entering the Alberton Gorge, and the whitewater will turn into class III rapids! As the raft trip passes under triple bridges, you will start to approach our favorite rapid: Tumbleweed! Make sure to paddle hard and smile large as you go through this rapid. At the end of the raft trip you will be able to purchase pictures of your whitewater rafting experience and can find them on our website through Montana River Photography.
After paddling through our second favorite rapid, Fang, you will enter into the lower gorge. This holds the opportunity to take in the beautiful scenery around you, float through some whitewater rapids, and play games on the raft! The raft trip comes to an end at Tarkio. When we reach the takeout, the guides will take you back to the Adventure Missoula shop in our van, and your trip with Adventure Missoula will come to a close!
