The 6 hour Wild River Tour through Hells Canyon on the Snake River should be on your "Bucket List" and Killgore Adventures would be our recommendation for the trip.
Killgore is a first class family owned and operated business. They are friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The boat was top notch.
We stayed in the RV facilities but they also have a row of nice motel units. There are nice clean restrooms and a laundry room.
The trip up the river and back takes you through class 3-5 rapids and Kurt navigates this river perfectly in the 36' jet boat. He is very knowledgeable about the area and shares this with you. There are stops going up and back at historical sites that also include bathroom breaks. They serve a great cold lunch at the dam site stop and you have time to tour the visitor center at the dam. There is also a stop on the way back to allow swimming for those who want to get out on the sandy stretch of beach and cool off.
Wildlife abounds in the canyon and Kurt tries to show you as much as he can. We saw Bighorn Sheep, Bear, Deer, Bald Eagle and a coyote plus other smaller birds and animals.
We have taken other jet boat trips in different areas through the years, including Alaska, but this was the best overall experience that we have had
