“Great Boat Tour! A must-do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

The Gates of the Mountains tour is an excellent chance to experience one of the best scenic stretches of river in the west. The Missouri is absolutely beautiful. The value is pretty good too, especially for what you get. You really get a great view and a ton of information on local history.

“It works”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Kyle started our tour by looking down at the controls of the boat and asking, "How does this work?" For the next two hours he regaled us with stories about the area, filling our heads with historical, biological, and geological information as he diligently scoured the river banks for signs of wildlife. Money well spent as the tours are operated by a nonprofit which uses the proceeds to preserve the area.

“Saw many bald eagles”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

An enjoyable tour in a beautiful part of Montana. We saw four bald eagles and one golden eagle.

I would recommend this tour - but bring sun screen as you could be in full sun for several hours.
