River Adventures provided a great day on the Snake River in Hells Canyon. It is a family owned business and the guide is the owner. He was a 3rd generational family member, was quite knowledgeable and provided many anecdotes that he had learned from his grandparents. The deli lunch was homemade, quite delicious and had been prepared by mother of guide. We saw several different species of wildlife. This tour was one of the highlights of our 2 week vacation in Idaho and Montana.

My Wife and I always wanted to take a jet boat tour of Hells Canyon and we finally did it. We had a wonderful time and were extremely impressed with River Adventures at every step along the way. Their communication was excellent, from the website to follow-up emails and calls after we booked online. We hired their shuttle service which took us from Riggins to the launch site over a twisty mountain road. The driver's skill and handling was excellent and put us at ease. The jet boat was AWESOME. Our jet boat pilot Rich is the owner of River Adventures and he has a true passion for the history of Hells Canyon as his family had lived in the canyon for many years. He knows every bend in the river and every rock in the canyon. The highlight of the trip was seeing a black bear and her two cubs. Rich spotted the bear, turned us around to see it, and maneuvered the boat close to the bears and I was able to take several excellent photographs which I always wanted to do. We had researched other jet boat tours and as we watched the other companies on the river, were continually pleased that we chose River Adventures. The individual seating and layout of the seating on our boat was better than other tour boats we saw on the water. Over and over, we were pleased at having chosen River Adventures. Rich, Becky and Megan at River Adventures, thank you for such an awesome trip! We will see you again next year for a Salmon River jet boat tour.

Was very exciting and fun. Beautiful scenery and great personal stories added to the enjoyment of the trip. The captain and his mate were very accommodating. The lunch provided was very good. I would highly recommend. They offer a shuttle service to get to the dock. I would recommend taking it. It was only $25.00 and worth it.
