Hells Canyon Jet Boat Tours

Looking for one of the most exhilarating boat adventures of a lifetime? Come journey with us on our Hells Canyon Jet Boat Tours in Idaho! Join Rich as he takes you through the ruggedness of Hells Canyon and his knowledge of the history, where his grandparents lived their entire working lives. As the Deepest Canyon in the United States, Hells Canyon earns its name! This harsh country is best seen from one of our comfortable USCG-certified jet boats. Allow our professional tour guides to show you a side of the Snake River you won’t see anywhere else.


To start your Hells Canyon jet boat adventure, you will drive your vehicle to the launch site at Pittsburg Landing, where you will meet with your guide for a 10:00 AM (MT) departure. We can also provide a shuttle service, so you don’t have to worry about driving! We can make pick-ups at local Motels and RV parks! We are dedicated to making your Hells Canyon jet boat tour experience as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

Once we are underway with the Hells Canyon jet boat ride, we will head upriver to look for the Bighorn Sheep that call Hells Canyon home. After stopping for a photo op, our Hells Canyon Jet Boat Tour will continue upriver. Your exciting afternoon will include stops at the historic Kirkwood Ranch and Museum, Sheep Creek Cabin, Nez Perce Indian pictographs, and many other sites of interest.

We will stop at a beach for lunch, where you’ll have the time to swim, or simply relax with your family and friends. We will continue upriver as far as Rush Creek, Granite Creek, and Hells Canyon Dam if the water level permits. At the tour’s end, your River Adventure will go back to the Pittsburg Landing launch site at about 4:00 PM (MST).

From the exciting rapids to calm pools just right for swimming, a Hells Canyon river boat tour lets you experience the best that Idaho’s most famous canyon has to offer!
