Trip of the Week – Thrillseekers

We’re getting pretty excited about the upcoming summer and want to share our excitement with you. Every week until our season starts, we’ll share one of our river trips with you. So be sure to tune into our blog each week to find out about each of our trips and find the perfect one for you and your friends or family!

Our seventh trip is our Thrillseekers:

Want to raise your pulse rate? Venture out on one of our Thrillseeker whitewater trips. We have sport rafts (4-6 people) and inflatable kayaks (1-2 people) that make the rapids a heart-pounding experience. These high adrenaline half and full-day trips are for ages 13 and up and offered in July and August only. Have no fear, get in gear!

Half and Full Day Inflatable Kayaks

Whether as a solo adventurer or with the expedition partner of your choice, individual or tandem Inflatable Kayaks are a great way to get up close and personal with some Montana whitewater. These intrepid craft can be added to any of our whitewater trips on which you’ll be assigned a raft and experienced guide to follow. Helmets, wetsuits, and neoprene booties are included.

Inflatable Kayaks are available for 1 or 2 people.
