Missoula Rafting and surfing with Montana River Guides

Father’s Day Surfing

Missoula Rafting and Missoula Surfing

Happy Father’s day 2016. Missoula rafting is what we do day in and day out at Montana River Guides. I think  I have been rafting, river boarding or kayaking on every Father’s day for the past 25 years. To celebrate, I just went surfing early this morning to start the day right. By surfing I mean I repeatedly jumped into the river and tried to catch a wave. Two primary challenges were; 1. The board was small, better suited for somebody much smaller and more athletic than this Dad. 2. I am a terrible surfer. Hence, there was not much standing up and I broke a fin. Can I still say I went surfing? Well it felt great to be in the river first thing in the morning, all alone at sunrise. I can’t think of a better way to start a day.

We have taken many rafting trips over the years and hands down this was one of the best ones yet!!! We took a private full day rafting tour with river side picnic and couldn’t have had a better time!! Our guide set up the best lunch spread at the waterside including fresh fruit and veggie trays, salad, sandwiches, chips/salsa, and the best homemade cookies!!! We had many stops, chances to swim, small cliff jumping, and the most beautiful scenery!!! Shout out to Amy as being the most fun guide to our crazy “Billy Goat Cyrus” group from Texas!!! Request her and you won’t be disappointed!!!
Our Montana River Guide trip down the Clark Fork was the highlight to our Montana vacation. Our guide let us paddle some while we were going thru the rapids which was an awesome experience. Weather and sun on the morning trip made for some great pictures.
We did a scenic float with our young kids. This was the absolute best thing we did our whole trip! So beautiful, so much fun. Amy was our guide and she was incredibly fun, knowledgable and kind. Cannot wait to float with them again!
There were three of us over 60 year old gals on our trip. Our guide, Jack, was outstanding. We felt safe and secure under his care the whole time while having the time of our lives. The beautiful scenery and wildlife were a bonus to the incredible river with its rapids along with calm areas to relax & enjoy the ride. Top on my list of the other incredible things we did this summer.
One of the best experience in the US was spending our Sunday with Montana River Guides! The crew was able to accommodate to over 60 of us on the YSEALI alumni tour and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our time on the river - Whitewater Rafting or Scenic Tour. Guides are 100% professionals who have fun with safety in mind. Highly recommend and must visit when you're in Montana. Thanks for the memories!
