There is nothing like the feeling of swirling water beneath and refreshing breezes all around as you float quietly past local wildlife in its natural habitat.

Float trip reservations are suggested to ensure your spot on this unique excursion. Call the number below for costs and available times. Departure times and trip lengths vary depending on the weather. Passengers depart from the park's main office at the specified times. Be sure to come prepared for the elements. Bring sun block, sunglasses, a hat and perhaps a lightweight long-sleeve shirt and trousers. If rain or other inclement weather is expected, proper protective clothing is a necessity. Be prepared to do some easy paddling, then settle into "The Little Pearl" and enjoy your Upper Missouri River Float Trip adventure.

The U.S. Coast Guard inspected craft that will transport you along the beautiful Upper Missouri River is a Zodiac inflatable workboat with a Honda 75 h.p. engine. This modern day explorer's vessel holds 10 passengers and is operated by a licensed Missouri River pilot. It was named "The Little Pearl" after a ferryboat that ran on the Missouri around the turn of the century.

Special trips can be arranged upon request.
