We went on a two day trip with HCA and had a most wonderful time. Boat captain and crewman showed us many historical sites in the canyon, explained about the river levels and rapid ratings. Safety was high on their list. Highly recommend this company.

We took the 5 hour Kirkwood jet boat tour. IMO, the Snake River rapids (class 3 & 4) are better for rafting. The jet boat pounds into/among the rapids. Rafting rides the rapids gracefully, up and down. Know what I mean? Although our guide, Dillon,...More
