Please call our reservations office at 406-722-7238. We run trips daily and can accommodate you if you're on your own or organizing an adventure for a large group. 50% deposit is required for all reservations. Deposits may be made with a credit card or must be received in our office within 10 days of reservation. We accept all major credit cards. For trips of under 10 people, guests can change their reservation up until 48 hours before the trip without risking their deposit or trip fee. Cancellations within 48 hours of trip departure forfeit the deposit. Cancellations the day of the trip are charged the full cost of the trip. We reserve the right to cancel trips with full refund due to weather, water levels (too high or low) or insufficient participants.

WEATHER: We run our trips and classes rain or shine.  During our summer raft trips the weather is usually beautiful. Rain showers if the do occur usually pass quickly, so don't get discouraged if the weather looks over cast the day of your trip. If it does happen to be overcast or raining the day of your trip we have complimentary splash jackets and wetsuits available at our shop. Consider bringing along a fleece, wool or non-cotton layer to wear.

ONLINE RESERVATIONS: For your convenience we offer online booking. When you reserve online you are charged the full amount of the trip. Please check in by phone or email if you do not recieve a confirmation call/note from us. 

Your deposit will confirm your reservation for your trip and date. Groups of 10 or more must pay the balance of their trip fee two weeks prior to departure. Groups also have 14 days prior to their trip to cancel with no charge. Cancellations within 14 days of departure forfeit the trip fee. Cancellations within two weeks of the trip date or no shows the day of the trip will be charged the full price of the trip. We realize your group size may change. Please let us know final group numbers at least 48 hours before trip departure.

Trip organizers for groups of over 15 people go for free. 
Normal daily trip departure times are 9am for morning half day and full day trips, and 2pm for afternoon trips. We regularly adjust the departure times to better accommodate a group's schedule.

Montana River Guides will not share your personal contact information with a third party. All information entered into our website for online booking is secure.

Although every precaution is taken to safeguard you and your belongings, river trips by their nature involve a certain amount of risk. Montana River Guides and its personnel shall assume no responsibility whatsoever for injuries, damages, losses or delays to person or property. We require that you acknowledge these risks by reading and signing a liability release prior to departure. We are not responsible for items lost or left on premises.

Let Bernice and our office staff help you decide which river trip will be most appropriate for your group. At normal flows the Alberton Gorge is a perfect family whitewater trip. We take ages five and up. Younger kids and older folks or families wanting a more civilized ride can go in bigger rafts for a milder float while people who want a wilder ride will go in smaller paddle rafts. We monitor flows daily and during highwater conditions in May and early June, we sometimes restrict trips to guests ages 16 and up. Call 406-722-7238 or 406-240-8060.

The Montana River Guides Shop is a 30 minute drive west of Missoula,
just off I-90.

Drive West on I-90 past Alberton. Take the Cyr Exit (Exit 70). After exiting you'll cross the river on the Cyr Bridge. You'll see the Cyr Bridge Fishing Access sign. Take an immediate hair pin left turn onto Sawmill Gulch Rd. after crossing the bridge (don't go across the railroad tracks), and you'll see the parking lot and river access and our sturdy shop, at the south end of the parking lot. Look for our yellow rafts

*Remember to factor in the time change! We operate on mountain time in Montana, one hour later than Washington and Idaho.

Drive East on I-90 approximately 2 hours from Coeur d'Alene. Continue past the Superior and Tarkio Exits (you're getting close). Take the Fish Creek Exit (Exit 66) off I-90. Turn left at the stop sign off the Exit Ramp. Drive a few hundred yards, cross the railroad tracks and turn right at the stop sign. Continue eastbound about 3 miles along the frontage road, Old State Hwy 10 until you see a sign for the Cyr Bridge Fishing Access. Veer right off the frontage road (onto Sawmill Gulch Rd) and you'll see the parking lot and river access. Our shop is the brick building, the only building, at the far end (south) of the parking lot. Look for our yellow rafts!
If you somehow miss the sign to the Cyr Fishing Access, the eastbound frontage road crosses the river. This is the Cyr Bridge from which you can look down and see the river access on your right. If you miss this too you'll end up back on I-90 eastbound—so turn it around!
