2018 Dinner Cruises

The Gates of the Mountains Gift Shop has been involved in catering meals for the chartered boat tour customers for many years. After getting lots of request for a dinner open to the public we decided to have Friday night dinner cruises open to the general public by reservation only.Sunset

Every Friday night from July 6, 2018 through July 27th, 2018  we will have a special evening tour after dinner. We will offer two entrées (see schedule for entrée) each night served buffet style in our pavilion with a view of the marina on Upper Holter Lake. All the dinners include tossed salad, potatoes, corn on the cob, fruit, rolls, home baked beans, ice tea, lemonade and dessert. If you like you can bring your own bottle of wine or cooler of beverages.

After dinner we will go out on the Missouri River for an unforgettable evening tour of the area. The tour generally lasts two hours and is a great way to see the canyon in evening light. The limestone cliffs are colored orange and pink by the setting sun. The added benefit of the evening tour is that the animals come out to feed after resting in the shade most of the day. Instead of looking for the sheep high on the vertical cliffs you might see them right at the rivers edge drinking from the river. Also the animals that are more nocturnal come out like river otters, raccoon, mountain lions and night hawks.

This tour is perfect as a birthday present for your mother or father. What could be nicer than an intimate meal with close friends and family at the Gates of the Mountains?
