a guided trip from Carter to Fort Benton is the perfect way to spend your time learning about all the local history of the area. You will learn about old fur trading posts, steamboat traffic, Lewis and Clark history, early pioneers and progression in the area. While relaxing on the river, you will see plenty of wildlife, stunning scenery of the river landscape and lush tree groves. This is a great trip for all ages and skill sets. If you don’t feel comfortable floating the river on your own, join one of our guided trips. Enjoy a river side lunch, refreshing beverages, swimming, rock hounding, local stories, floating, and bird watching.
We meet you at the cement boat ramp across from the Old Fort. From there you load up in vans and shuttle 30-40 minutes to Carter Ferry.
From Carter Ferry, you will start your river trip. It is one of three old operating cable ferries on the Missouri River. Carter Ferry is equipped with bathrooms and a well used boat ramp. While at the ferry, we will give you a quick river talk with safety procedures and paddling instructions.
