EXCURSION: Gates of the Mountains Boat Tour

EXCURSION: Gates of the Mountains Boat Tour

September 6, 2023 @ 8:15 am 3:00 pm

For over 125 years guests have been following in the path of Lewis and Clark exploring the “Gates of the Mountains”. Located 20 miles north of Helena, the 2-hour boat tour is operated by the Gates of the Mountains Inc, whose goal is to protect, educate, and allow visitors to explore one of the last best places.

Great towering walls of limestone still stand guard over the river. From the vessel you can see Mann Gulch, the site of the raging forest fire that killed 13 smokejumpers, August 5, 1949.

Near Mann Gulch the pilot will hug the shoreline to give you a look at Indian pictographs painted on the rock wall. The tour’s main attraction, though, is the inexhaustible scenery.
