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

There were just 6 of us taking this trip with our guide, Sam. He was wonderful. Full of interesting facts and pointed out many scenic and historical sites plus lots of wildlife. Ask for Sam!

We made this trip up Hells Canyon a family affair with parents, kids and grandkids. Fabulus!! The trip was everything we wanted. We were able touch the spray coming from the dam as water was let out. Definitely was a "bucket item".

I participated in a weekend adventure with Killgore Adventures and loved every minute of the experience! We enjoyed ATV rides, jet boat tour, camp fires and hiking. A great time!

We used Kilgore for a backpacking shuttle up the Snake River in late March. Even with the record high water there were no worries about the large boat having enough power for the big waves. We saw a herd of elk and a bald eagle.

The Killgore family provides a wonderful Snake River experience. Whether fishing or just exploring the river you will be well taken care of by this family run guide service.

We stayed at the motel and took the shuttle from there. We were glad that we did as it was a pretty long drive and a very steep gravel road. I guess it depends on where you are going after the trip is over...I agree with... More
