Wow! What a great jet boat ride on the Snake River! Hells Canyon Adventures operates its tours from Hells Canyon Dam through the "wild" part of the river. Mark, the captain and owner, gave us a terrific tour with lots of interesting information about the river and the people who have lived and worked in Hells Canyon. The boat was very comfortable and in excellent condition. Mark really knew the river and we all felt totally safe with him in control of the boat. His assistant, Bill, was very helpful and so thoughtful about asking if he could take photos of each passenger at various photo opportunities. The Hells Canyon scenery was majestic and we saw bald eagles and big horn sheep very near the banks of the river. Going over the class four rapids in a jet boat was great fun. We got to go farther down river than the usual all-day Kirkwood tour, as Hells Canyon Adventures is also a shuttle service on the river and had to pick up ten rafters at Pittsburg Landing to return them to Hells Canyon dam. It was over 100 degrees in the canyon the day we took the jet boat tour, so it was delightful when Mark pulled up to a great swimming area and we got to cool off in the river. It made for a cool, refreshing ride the final few miles up river to the boat dock near the dam.
