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

We took the 4 hr. Kirkwood Ranch Jet Boat Tour. Our reservations were handled with care. The captain was very capable and we felt at ease under his command. The tour was also educational, outlining the history of the homesteads on the river and statistics of the canyon and Snake River itself. Being on the river is the only way... More

I had the pleasure of staying, with a visiting friend, at the Hells Canyon Adventures Lodge for two nights in late May, 2014. We also took the "Kirkwood" jet-boat tour from the same firm. The lodge was plain on the outside but totally comfortable, spacious, and clean on the inside, with great made-to-order breakfasts expertly prepared by Marla, our hostess... More

This review covers my extensive web search and experience with Hells Canyon Adventures via emails. After many hours of researching various options for a jet boat tour in Hells Canyon, I settled on Hells Canyon Adventures. Since I was searching "Idaho" websites, it took some reading to realize we could reach the departure point going through Oregon. And, Hells Canyon... More

This is an update from my review dated Aug. 8,2013. I did receive a letter from Brandie L. acknowledging a need to more accurately represent advertising of their tours. May see some changes in the future? She also generously offered to, "make it right" on a future tour with Hell's Canyon Adventures...apology accepted. Thank you Brandie!

In June 2013 we had the pleasure of experiencing Hell's Canyon with a two hour jet boat trip through the canyon on the Snake River. The rugged beauty of the canyon was fascinating. Our boat captain was very informative providing information on the geology of the canyon and early Indian inhabitants. He also shared stories of white inhabitants complete with... More

We took the overnight trip from the put-in below Hell's Canyon Dam 110 miles downstream to Lewiston, ID, and then back again the next day. The boat proved itself river-worthy and is the only way to venture upstream through the rapids. The majority of the trip was scenic and fun. We saw much wildlife including mountain sheep, river otter, turkey,... More
