Family Reunion & BBQ July 15 - Montana River Guides

Missoula Rafting

Family Reunion Whitewater Raft Trip and BBQ
Date: July 15, 2018
Meet Time: 3 pm
Meet Place: Montana River Guides

The Alberton Gorge is known for it’s fun family whitewater and incredible canyon scenery. We will float the river with Montana River Guides and have a BBQ afterwards. The Gorge is one of Montana’s best kept secrets with stunning canyon scenery and the best summer whitewater Montana has to offer. There are great swimming opportunities along the way.  Dress ready to get wet and have a great day on the river.

***Where to Meet: *****The Montana River Guides Office at the Alberton Gorge (Near I-90, Exit 70, 30 minutes west of Missoula)
We’ll meet at our shop to check in and gear up. So park in the parking lot and walk over to check in. Our guides will ask everyone to sign acknowledgment of risk forms. When all guests have arrived we’ll get geared up, provide some basic rafting instruction and a safety talk, then walk down to the river to get started.

-Our rafting headquarters 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.

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.

WHAT TO WEAR:: Summer Rafting–Hot Days in July and August. Bring swimwear or shorts and t-shirt you don’t mind getting wet. For footwear old tennis shoes or sports sandals work best because they won’t come off if you take a swim. For smaller kids –or if you get chilled easily– bring along a windbreaker, rain coat or fleece layer to put on if the sun goes behind the clouds.
We always have wetsuits and splash gear at our shop which are complimentary for our rafting guests in cool conditions.

YOUR RESPONSIBILITY: 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 10,000 Waves 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.

Thanks and we’ll see you on the river!

Happy kids and family whitewater rafting with Montana River Guides

138 Big Bend Ln, Alberton
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!
