Hells Canyon Jet Boat Tour
Jet Boat Tour through the Wild River Section of the Snake River in Hells Canyon - South Entrance - Hells Canyon Dam. The Wild River Section is where you find the largest rapids, where the canyon is at its deepest elevations, and the scenery transitions from rock walls at the bottom, to high dessert grasslands in the middle, to alpine forests at the top. Your Captain will entertain you with stories about early Native Americans and ranching families that called Hells Canyon home.

You will drive along the Hells Canyon Scenic Byway to get to the south entrance of Hells Canyon. There are three ways you can access the south entrance, (1) Cambridge, Idaho (2) Baker City, Oregon (3) Joseph, Oregon. This is a remote location. Have a full tank of gas, snacks and drinks in your car. Be prepared to enjoy your drive. The drive into Hells Canyon is where your adventure begins. The jet boat tour is just an incredible addition to the adventure.
What to Expect
This is a 54 mile round trip adventure and boarding the boat begins at 10 am. You will return between 3 and 4. Your captain will serve you lunch on the river at noon, lunch is served family style and accommodates most dietary preferences. Historical sight seeing stops are included! The location we stop and how long we stay there varies from day to day. Animal sighting are also an added bonus.This is not a rushed adventure. We want you to enjoy all that is offered throughout the tour so we don't put strict times on each activity included, that is why the tour is based on mileage covered and not times.

There is no age restrictions but everyone has to wear a life jacket. There might be a restriction on babies and toddlers but did not notice it on brochure. The cost for kids 11 and under is about half the price.
