We had guests from Sweden who had just a single day to spend in Idaho. So we decided we would treat them to a full-day jet boat trip with Snake River Adventures. What a great decision that turned out to be. Justin (company owner and our boat pilot on the day) was such an outstanding professional, not only in his... More

Family of four, with 13 and 17 year old. This was a fabulous and enjoyable tour - to see remote wilderness unavailable any other way except by boat. Pristine beauty, steep canyon river, lush and deep with raging rapids, rushing narrows, and tranquil, deep eddies and pools. The Snake River is an awesome river with incredible scenery. The jet boat... More

We took a 1/2 day trip & it was more than we expected. Lots of wildlife along the shore, beautiful canyon walls and lots of photo opportunities. Loved the rapids we went thru. We had a very knowledgeable boat caption who manavured the river with lots of experience and history of the area. Would do it again with grandkids if... More

I opted for the full day (9 hour) tour and anger regretted it. Drinks,boxed lunch and stops were great and lots of information was given over... More

What a nice outfit. Super friendly when you call and when you arrive. Eric our captain was fun, shared alot of history and made it interesting. You could hear him! Bob was the hardest worker making our trip fun. He must have been a waiter in a previous life! Lance, you have some big shoes to fill to keep up... More

Went as far as Kirkland. The rapids were not as bad as my wife feared. Beautiful scenery, captain gave great explanations of sites. Made enough stops so we could stretch. Return trip downstream was exciting.

We were part of a group on a jet boat tour of Hell's Canyon. The boat was comfortable, the driver skilled and gave interesting narration throughout the day. The stop for lunch was at Garden Creek Ranch which was a treat. A lovely day on the river.

I have to give a shout out about Snake River Adventures. Took the tour to the dam. It was the smaller boat which was really nice not to be packed in like sardines. Captain and crew were great, a lot of interaction going on with each of the guest. There were 4 children on board under 5. They kept them... More
