The launch site for this jet boat tour is in a remote location. When you see Hell's Canyon you can understand why there are so few roads. But of course that's part of the allure. We found the 6-hour tour, including lunch, to be a wonderful experience in every way. The operation is very professional with great drivers/guides. There is a stop at a historic ranch where you can stroll and use bathroom facilities. It was over 100 degrees in the canyon on our trip, apparently not uncommon in the summer. But the speed of the covered boat and spray from the rapids kept us comfortable. They also beached the boat twice to allow for swimming in the Snake River. That was fun! There were 2 large coolers of water and lemonade on the boat. The lunch is amazing. Not a brown bag sandwich with a granola bar. They put out a full buffet spread on a table in the back of the boat for making deli wraps, salad, and with obviously homemade potato and pasta salads and brownies. Wow! We later met some of the family at their office/shop/B&B. Super nice people who take obvious pride in their business and the quality of the lunch. There were a lot of rafters on the river. That's obviously an option. But if you want a jet boat ride with plenty of time to enjoy the river, swim and eat a great lunch, this is the way to go.
