  • We have seen the attraction only from the street out, you have to take even a boat to admire the 'gate'.

  • This is a stunning boat tour of the gates of the mountain wilderness area. You get to hear some history about the area (including Lewis and Clark's thoughts, stories about various fire fighters, etc), look at some pretty awesome cliff faces, and maybe catch a glimpse of some wildlife. Definitely worth the trip. The tour is accessible to all ages, no strenuous activity involved.
  • Horrible customer service. We are visiting from Arizona and we booked a boat trip for July 10, and it was raining and very cold. The boat we were scheduled to tour in was an open wooden boat and not an option. We could not go at a later time that day, as we had other family commitments that would have had to be delayed. We asked for a refund since this was not our fault. The "gentleman" Tim who answered the phone would NOT REFUND our money because the weather conditions were not "HIS" fault. He hung up on me when I kept trying to get my money back. We called back and he said he was verbally accosted. Wow, you won't refund our money, we live in another state and can't just "reschedule". Would not even consider a refund. Unfortunately we will not be able to enjoy what should have been an awesome adventure.
  • Great Place, I will definitely Be Kayaking Down this one day. But we went for a Dinner Cruise, and it was A Great Historic Boat Cruise.
  • This is a must.On our boat ride we were fortunate to see big Horn sheep and a few Eagles. The captain of our boat was excellent very informative.I would do it again if we came back.
  • Traveling down the Missouri River on a beautiful day with picturesque scenery and wildlife couldn't be more relaxing. The boat is comfortable and the people are even better. This is a must see for people of all ages. It's like a time machine.
