Smith River Rentals

Boats

MRO offers rentals of rafts, canoes, kayaks, inflatable kayaks and canoes, personal pontoon boats, stand up paddle boards and drift boats. While we do rent all the above boats, we have found that due to carrying capacity and versatility, most Smith River floaters choose to use rafts. MRO uses only high quality boats that are late models, tough and in excellent condition. Our rafts are self-bailing rafts that are new to one year old. Raft brands rented are NRS, AIRE, Rocky Mountain Raft, SOTAR, and Maxxon. Our frame package includes the highest quality adjustable NRS aluminum frames, designed by our 37 years of experience renting and using boats on the Smith. Included in our frame package are front seat, oars, straps, cargo deck, cargo net, manual air pump, life jackets and repair kit. Options to our standard frame package include: front and rear swivel seats, anchor frames and anchors, dry boxes, and Yeti bear proof coolers and electric bear proof fences.

For prices and a complete list of our rental boats and accessories, please see our rentals below.

Accessories

A full line of accessories are available to rent including: tents, folding tables, camp stools and chairs, cots, dry bags, screen house, Kelty tarp with poles, stoves, coolers, dry boxes, and more. For a complete list see our rental list below.

Trailers

If you prefer to pick up and deliver your own rafts inflated we can provide you with a trailer, with your rafts inflated strapped down and ready to go, for $25 per day.

Deluxe Rentals

Deluxe rentals are for those who choose to do their own trip, but want the convenience and time savings of having MRO provide not only boats, but also ice chests filled with delicious fresh foods, and all the cooking and camping gear. From boats to food to shuttles to drop off / pick up of people and gear, MRO is the choice for the most convenient and experienced Smith River rental company.

Shuttles and Delivery

Smith River shuttles for vehicles from put in to take out are $120 per vehicle.

Drop off of boats and gear at the put in is $225 and pick up at take out is $100. If we do both drop off and pick up it is $295 for up to 2 boats and an additional $50 per boat up for up to 4 total boats. When MRO delivers rafts they are inflated and river ready at the put in. All you will need to do is load your boat and head down the river.

Van shuttles for up to 8 people and gear from Great Falls to the put-in and from the take out back to Great Falls is $439.
