Our scenic wildlife river float on the mighty Yellowstone River follows parts of Capt.Clark's historic return route to St. Louis.
About the Safari
William Clark and his segment of the group, including the Shoshone woman Sacagawea and her young son "Pomp", descended the Jefferson River, ascended the Gallatin River, and crossed a drainage divide to intercept the Yellowstone River in the vicinity of today's Livingston, Montana. Using our custom-built boat, "Discovery", we follow part of their route.
This trip has lots of "Big Sky"scenery and big water to match. As usual, we'll read the actual words of Captain Clark from his own journals, explore his maps, and also discuss other exciting historic endeavors like the "Bozeman Trail." We watch wildlife such as deer on shore, sometimes a moose, and possibly a stately bald eagle perched in a tree above us looking for a tasty fish. We also often see pelicans and shorebirds as well as beaver and river otter. In season, there is also the opportunity for great tubing and swimming fun! This tour is suitable for children. Scrumptious picnic lunch, snacks and beverages included.
