  • This was the first time my family and I went on the tour. We had a wonderful time. We were on the newer boat which was great as it had AC and a bathroom. There is also an area for outdoor seating. The captain was very knowledgeable about the area and had great stories. The ride was about 2 hours long and I would absolutely do it again and would recommend it.
  • Great tour of a Lewis and Clark discovery and milestone of the Corps of Discovery. Relaxing two hours with informative talk from tour guide. Senior discount available.
  • It was 92 degrees today and the place we had to wait had no air conditioner, so most went outside under a covered shelter. We were told the boat for the 2 hour ride was air conditioned, but it was not. The boat had 3 air conditioners but we're not setup to handle this heat. So, the windows were opened. I suggest that you wear a hat and if you are older and can not take the heat, choose another day.
  • Your guide was extremely knowledgeable and quite funny. Plus saw quite a bit of wildlife as well. Very beautiful. Will deffinetly visit again soon.
  • The views are spectacular! The gentleman that did our boat trip was an incredible story teller. If you're in Helena or Great Falls, Montana, this is a definite "must see"!
