i have wanted to take a boat trip on the Snake River through Hells Canyon for many years and finally did it! The boat picked me up from my hotel, the Quality Inn (see my rave review) right on time. The jet boat holds 20ish is covered (a few uncovered seats in the back) and was very stable. It was a 5 hour trip with a picnic lunch high up overlooking the river. Good food too! The rapids were exciting, and most of the trip was jetting along peacefully. The constant viewsare breath-taking and we saw some wildlife too. There are some tame deer where we stopped for lunch. All and all a chance of a lifetime experience.

Took the half day trip. We had a nice lunch and picked up some rafters and took them to Pittsburgh Landing, extending our trip by a couple of hours. Never felt in danger and it was a blast going up the rapids and later drifting back through them. We took the smaller boat which holds about 20 people. There is also a larger boat and you can take a day trip up to Hells Canyon Dam.
