MONTANA WHITEWATER is a family owned business in Bozeman MT, near Yellowstone National Park. It was started in 1992 by Bill Zell, after he abandoned his PhD studies in Computer Science.

We started by running the Gallatin River, and gradually added the Yellowstone River operation. The exclusive Madison River permit became ours in 2006. We added Fly-Fishing instruction to our Gallatin River activities in 2009. We are truly passionate about creating experiences that our clients treasure forever.

Bill still enjoys guiding trips and enjoying what brought us here in the first place! Sharing our amazing rivers with our clients is a privilege and a blast!

The rivers we run flow out of Yellowstone National Park. They are among the most beautiful and pristine waters in the lower 48 states. We believe that quality outdoor experiences lead to a greater sense of health and well being. Boating is a passion that we are honored to share with you!
