My two sons and I went on a half-day inflatable kayak tour of the main branch of the Salmon River with Sawtooth Adventure Co. Troy, our guide was absolutely excellent, from the moment we drove up and he gave us very personal attention in the preparations, to the on-river guiding -- and of course, the fabulous lunch they had prepared and served for us. I will admit, riding the river in mid-August is more of a family affair (there were some families rafting alongside our kayak group) so my sons (ages 17 and 21) were left wanting for more thrills than the 2 sets of real rapids (Class 3?) and mostly Class 2s that we experienced. The inflatable kayaks were surprisingly fun, since were were hoping to rent hard shells. All in all, it was a fun day, and Sawtooth Adventure aptly and professionally made it accessible.
