We are Idaho's #1 outdoor adventure company. We provide scenic whitewater jet boat tours in Hells Canyon, guided fishing & hunting trips, & much more! When you go on a trip with Killgore Adventures, you are traveling with the locals. We are a family owned and operated business and our trips start right in the heart of Hells Canyon right where all the big whitewater begins. Captain Kurt Killgore has been driving jet boats for almost 18 years now, 15 of them commercially with 100% safety rate. Our main trip, the Wild River Tour, is six hours long where you go through the complete wild river section of the Snake River. The trip is 32 miles each way making four key stops and running all the whitewater rapids Hells Canyon has to offer. We go through Granite Creek and Wild Sheep Creek Rapids which are class 4/5 and numerous class 3 rapids along the tour which are exciting for everybody. Check out our video to learn more about the historical stops we make along the way, the lunches we provide our guests, the engines on our boats, and many other common questions our customers ask. We hope you will consider booking one of these exciting trips with us! #killgoreadventures

Great day on the river. Kurt took us through the rapids which were fun but not scary. A lot more tame than rafting but still very enjoyable. The scenery was awesome. Saw a few animals before we reached the dam which was interesting. Would definitely...More

The many glowing reviews previously posted are well deserved. Just wanted to add that the Killgore website accurately describes everything about the trip. Nice to see truth in advertising nowadays.

The Killgore Hells Canyon Jet Boat trip is pretty much the perfect experience for those who are not ready to brave the rapids themselves. The canyon is spectacular, and the ride, which lasts about 6 hours, is exciting. We saw big horn sheep, eagles, and...More

Our trip wasn't too rough. The big boat handles things well. If you want to get wet the back of the boat gets sprayed. The water was high. The character of the rapids changes with high to medium to low water. Some rapids get... More
