  • We took some friends from out of state on this wonderful boat ride. They very much enjoyed as well as we did. This was our second time and will go again as you never know what wildlife you might see. ...  more »

  • If you're like me, you can be a bit skeptical of reviews on line. But this one seemed to be overwhelmingly positive. So we bit the bullet and booked way ahead on line to be sure we could do it on the ...  more »

  • Great way to see this lake. Friendly knowledgeable staff.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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"!
