    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.

    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.

    We absolutely loved every moment of this 6-hour trip. Dusty, the captain, thoroughly explained details of the trip, safety, rapids, etc. The scenery was magnificent. The rapids were lots of dun. Lunch was excellent at Kirkwood Ranch. A perfect day.
