Let Zoo Town Surfers show you the best whitewater rafting Missoula, Montana and Idaho have to offer. We offer a “come as you are” family type atmosphere at Zoo Town Surfers. This is facilitated by professional and passionate guides who love spending time on the river.  Whether we’re rowing, floating, kayaking, SUP-ing, or surfing, our affection for water is contagious! We invite you to join us on a Missoula rafting trip river where you can disconnect, slow things down a bit, and focus on what is important: meaningful experiences with friends and family that we love and care about!

I would have to say that one of my favorite things about Zoo Town Surfers is how well the guides compliment the rivers, and vice versa. They enjoy the trip just as much as you and get just as excited (if not more in some cases!).  It’s all around a great vibe that you cannot find with just any old company. You come for the white water and go home with new friends and family.

Since 2013 The MORE Program has partnered with ZTS to provide camps and programs getting youth on the water. Sense of stoke, passion for the river, and promoting river sports in the next generation, this is what ZTS brings to our participants. A commitment to risk management, river advocacy, and fun are all at the center of ZTS.

Our family had a fabulous time on the Gorge with Clay. A magician on the oars! He took the time to let the kids jump off the cliffs, engaged them in conversation, made sure they had a thrilling ride, took photos, great lunch, just a great guy all around. Jason the owner is also fantastic. You can’t go wrong with Zoo Town Surfers!!
