I took the Kirkwood Trip. It was a good day, but didn't live up to the description. First the pros. Hells Canyon Adventures is safe and reliable. They have been at this a while and know what they are doing. They were also extremely accommodating when I wound up in the emergency room the morning of my trip and had... More

We took the Kirkwood trip had a great day on the Snake River in Hells Canyon. It was worth the long trip to get there. The lunch was a buffet with lots of choices including ham turkey and lots of veggies and watermelon. My daughter follows a gluten-free diet and they had good choices for her including baking her gluten-free... More

My husband and I took the Kirkwood tour and loved every minute of it. Yes, it is out of the way but worth the drive. We will be doing this again someday. It was very hot that day, 116 in the shade, but the dip in the river helped a lot. The lunch was exceptionally good. We have been on... More

We took the Granite Creek Adventure yesterday afternoon. We have two children ages 7 and 5. Before we went, I was nervous it would be too intense for them (or me with them on the boat). Turns out there was nothing to be worried about. Children are required to wear life vests the entire time. My very conservative child was... More

A Great experience for first timers, loved the time spent on the ride. We took the Granite Creek Half Day Adventure. It starts with a speed boat ride on a rafting type experience, if you sit on a covered spot you miss the water splash!! For lunch, they take you on a secluded beach type place on the river. The...

My company has chartered Steelhead trips with Hell's Canyon adventures for the past 6 yrs. Mark takes us to the fish and the rest is up us. This is a first class trip. Thanks Mark & Dusty you are truly the best. Scott

The jet boat tour was just right for kids and the elderly. Not to big of rapids. We saw a black bear, mountain sheep, an eagle and got to watch someone reel in a big fish. Beautiful scenery. The drive there is long and the roads are windy, but still worth the trip.

Took my husband on a surprise trip to do the Hell's Canyon Adventure jet boat ride. It was a long drive from home, but worth it. He was really surprised. The captain and crew were very capable. Did the 6 hour Kirkwood adventure. The rapids were neat, and we felt safe. Got to see a small black bear, 4 beautiful... More

The tour we took was to just past wild sheep rapids. It was a free upgrade for us. Not sure why. However we truly should have bit the bullet and paid for the longest trip. We just didn't get enough rapids! Think this is a good tour for folks with kids. The guide was knowledgeable and kind. The fault was... More

My husband and I did the Kirkwood tour with our two kids (8 & 10) and loved it. Such a beautiful place and a wonderful way to see Hells Canyon. Had a delicious spread for lunch and as a super hot day (104 per our car upon return) the captain did an extra stop for us to jump in the... More
