Excellent day of white water adventures. Our crew were a lot of fun and knowledgable about the canyon and wildlife. Definitely recommend their tours. Even saw a small black bear up close on the rocks.

We had an awesome ride on the JET BOAT down the Snake River. It was informative, fun, and we even saw a bear swimming in the river. Give it a try. We're in our 70's so any one can do it.

In a jet boat you are able to see the river and canyon, and run some fierce rapids, and do it all in a day. Unlike raft trips which can take multiple days, and give you the one-way view of the river, the jet boats...More
