Just got back from a TERRIFIC Jetboat Adventure with Riggins, Idaho based River Adventures.

Mike was our superb Captain & History Guide and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Megan was our Customer Service person who expertly guided us with reservations and perfect scheduling and logistics. Megan is a lady of many talents!

We enjoyed the boat (Well maintained, clean, fast), the scenery including Bear(s), Eagles, Osprey, Geese, Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep, deer, etc., and a delicious home made lunch with Deli-sandwich, potato salad, chips, cookies, plenty of drink selections.

We also learned the history of the area and visited several small ranches and in particular we visited the Home of a famous Idaho Legend and Mountain Man, Buckskin Bill. I actually met Buckskin Bill 50 years ago while riding a raft down the Salmon River as a Boy Scout. His home is carefully preserved and is now a museum.

This is an excellent, safe and fun activity for the whole family.

The ride up the river was beautiful! Our captain, Mike made the trip great with his knowledge of the river and the area. I have been up the river in the winter before with WWB and loved it, so brought my husband so he could see it too.

What a great trip.. I have been wanting to go for years,already planning the next trip.. our Capitain (Mike) was a great guy and could handle the boat like a pro. He knew the river and it’s history.. my teenage daughter came, she wasn’t to excited but she also can’t wait for our next one.. what a beautiful scenic ride... Thanks for the memories.

Great trip, super friendly people, staff and town of Riggins. Great accommodations at The Bunkhouse, perfect for the 6 of us and a 2 year old. She loved the horses and chickens plus seeing a deer. Everyone had a fun experience. If you Haven't done Hell's Canyon, River Adventures was a great way to do it.

Great trip, highly recommend it. The personnel connection of the Captain with the history of the Canyon was especially interesting.
