The 6 hour Wild River Tour through Hells Canyon on the Snake River should be on your "Bucket List" and Killgore Adventures would be our recommendation for the trip. Killgore is a first class family owned and operated business. They are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The boat was top notch. We stayed in the RV facilities but they also have... More

If you want a chance to see a wild river safely and comfortably, take this tour. We took the Hell's canyon tour and were not disappointed. At $175.00, it is a lot for a family of four, but is worth the once in a lifetime experience. The tour starts you out in the canyon and not through farmland. The people... More

We spent 3 days with the atv group from Killgore Adventures. We had 2 great rides. We saw a lot of area and had some great rides. The staff are all very pleasent to deal with. The BBQ/potluck was great at the end of the ride. The only reason this isn't a 5 is because we were at the tail... More

The tour was absolutely fabulous. It takes up the entire day, though - but a complete cold lunch is included and served at Hells Canyon Dam, the destination. You go by car (or their shuttle) 17 mi of hair-rising gravel road to park at Pittsburg Landing, where the boat tour starts. Kurt navigated the rapids perfectly, one of them category... More

The jet boat tour was absolutely amazing and definitely the highlight of our trip. We experienced some pretty great rapids the day we went and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable - it's unfortunate that other reviews didn't have a similar experience. We stayed at their 6-unit motel for 2 nights and found it to be clean, quiet and comfortable.... More

The folks at Kilgore Tours earned every penny of their fee. The Captain, Kurt, navigated the Snake River exceptionally well when you consider the River's water level was clearly below average for August. The Lunch they provided was complete and done with care. All of us had a chance to take as many photos as we wished and included a... More

We hired Kilgore Adventures for a jetback for a large group of rafters. We expected to load all our own gear, which we did. We were aware that the boat was on a schedule and did not expect a tour of the canyon. We did however, expect basic greetings and some shared knowledge when asked about specific landmarks (creeks, cabins),... More

My son and I drove up from Boise to White Bird, Idaho to take Killgore's river trip to the Hell's Canyon Dam. We stayed 2 nights at their comfortable, clean motel in Whitebird where the accommodations were secure, nicely decorated, and located on the beautiful grounds near White Bird Creek. The jet boat tour did not disappoint!! After first driving... More

My sons and I did a Snake River jet boat tour with KillGore Adventures in August of 2012. I would highly recommend that others do not do this tour. It is not worth the high cost of the tour. It really isn't any more than a boat trip up and then down the river between their dock and Hell's Canyon... More

Had an amazing ride through Hells Canyon in a jet boat with Killgore Adventures. The guys (captain and crew) running the trip were great and knew the river like the backs of their hands. Told the history of the river and attractions as we passed them and stopped at a few. Running the rapids was the best part, captain took... More
