We have been teaching Swiftwater rescue classes on every major river in Montana since 1995. While we are based near Missoula, Montana we teach classes on the Swan, Middle Fork of Flathead, Missouri, Clearwater, Gallatin, Yellowstone, Stillwater, Bitterroot, Bighole, Beaverhead, and Madison Rivers. Through the Whitewater Rescue Institute, we teach classes throughout the west and as far south as Costa Rica.
