Our goal at Montana River Tours and Adventure Guides is to provide recreational experiences and equipment to the public, in an effort to get more people outside experiencing our public lands in the most ecologically sound manner possible.


Jim Hammons and Laura Parker

Having spent a majority of their lives exploring the public lands surrounding this beautiful northwest corner of Montana, owners Jim Hammons and Laura Parker only saw it fit to share their passion for being outside with their community. They were finally able to make it happen in 2017, when they started leading their first trips on the Kootenai and Yaak Rivers. Jim has extensive experience on the water, and has helped lead many trips on the Moyie River in Idaho. In addition, he has personally guided the Middle Fork of the Salmon and the Lochsa River, which both range between Class II-IV rivers, and also on the Class I, Smith River. He has also spent ample time running the Main Salmon, the Little Salmon, the Snake, and the Spokane Rivers. Jim is a certified Swiftwater Rescue Technician, a certified Raft Guide through Montana River Guides in Alberton, Montana and is certified in First Aid and CPR.
