All of our jet boat trips feature the canyon's prehistory, history, geology, flora and fauna in addition to its beauty and exciting whitewater. Come and visit North America's deepest gorge and a place of unsurpassed beauty which is Hells Canyon. From the Snake River you will view a cathedral of God's own creation, with lofty walls and spires reaching heights of 9,393 feet, surpassing even the Grand Canyon! If a full day tour isn't what your are looking for we also offer a half day tour that takes you to the Nez Perce Crossing and does included a lunch. This tour run from 10-4pm. We offer other tours such as fishing charters, group charters, "Wine on the Snake" and much much more.

Our party of four had a wonderful day exploring Hells Canyon with Snake River Adventures. The new boat was clean and comfortable. The crew of two were fun and skilled. We saw three groups of mountain sheep, numerous deer, eagles and more. The box lunch was generous and served to us at the beautiful Garden Gulch Ranch. We would recommend this trip to others. I would suggest that passengers on the boat tuck a pair of ear plugs into their pockets before they leave home, as the engines are a bit noisy. It is easy to hear the narration even if you are wearing ear protection. One member of our party had hearing aids. He wore the bright orange ear muffs that he would usually wear when using power equipment in the shop. He said the ear muffs "saved the day" for him.

I have been an Idaho resident my entire life and have lived in the Lewis-Clark Valley for over 20 years, so it still amazes me how few times I have enjoyed what is truly right outside of my back door. My most recent trip up the Snake with Snake River Adventures was amazing!! Our River Boat Captains, Cameron and Nate were incredibly proficient in the local history and geology of Hells Canyon, and interjected just enough information to make the trip a true joy. My travel partner had never been up the River before, so she was thrilled with all of it...especially the two stops at Garden Creek...WOW!! What a beautiful spot... Additional stops at the Kirkwood Ranch and at Sheep Creek, paired with the 30-40 bighorn sheep, countless turkey and deer sitings, and the half-dozen bald eagles we spotted, made for an incredibly memorable trip. Thanks SRA...you guys ROCK!!

After a couple of years of wanting to make the trip down the snake river, we finally made it this year with Snake River Adventures. It was a last minute reservation and I was disappointed that we could not get a full day trip. As it worked out the half day trip was just enough! We had a great Captain (Kirk) who was knowledgeable and informative. The lunch stop at Garden Creek Ranch was fabulous and relaxing.(Did not want to leave) The lunch was much more than we expected and it was nice to sit along the river on the deck as the weather was perfect. While on the boat we saw many Big horn sheep and at different times, eagles flying along next to the boat. I want to bring my grand kids back. If looking for a great memorable trip, book this one!

Our group of six had a wonderful half day adventure up and down the Snake River. Our captain did a wonderful job pointing out the historical sites and spotting the wildlife along the banks. With two deckhands we couldn't have asked for a better day.

Wonderful boat, excellent captain/tour guide, nice box lunch, several shore stops. Like others, we saw osprey/deer/ram AND wild turkeys, Canada geese, a golden eagle, petroglyphs, and so much more. Wonderful day for us.
