I would highly recommend this trip through the canyon and Beamers offered a wonderful full day trip. It was a great trip (all day) with fun & excitement as we went through the rapids both up and down the river. We saw big horn sheep & deer along the way. Captain Billy was very skilled in handling the boat and... More

What a ride! After traveling from Yakima, WA. to Pendleton, OR. to Walla Walla, WA. then to Milton Freewater OR. back to Walla Walla and finally on the second day on to Clarkston, WA., we pulled in at the Quality Inn Hotel to drop off our bags and head down to the Snake River to board the Jet Bus for...

We took our 9 year old daughter on the full day tour over the weekend. When we left the windows in the boat were partly open due to the chilly wind. Our daughter enjoyed going to the front of the boat and watching from there. On the way back the windows were all pulled back to create an open boat... More

My wife and I took this tour on 8/10/16. Capt Jim and his able assistant Jim made the trip the trill you hear about. No fires, no smoke - just a clear day (cool in the morning) aboard a 900 Hp twin jet boat. 35K going up and 45K (with the current) coming back. We took the whole day tour... More

One of the highlights of our bus tour of the Pacific Northwest with Globus was a Beamer's jet boat trip into Hell's Canyon. When things go perfectly all is generally well in the end, but as we all know only too well, things don't always go perfectly. That's why it's necessary to have a back-up plan, and nowhere is that...

Jill K, Owner at Beamers Hells Canyon Tours, responded to this review

Our entire staff and crew are interested in your feedback Frank and we take it seriously. Your specific tour travels along the Snake River into over 200,000 acres of the Hells Canyon Wilderness area where no roads are located. We agree the remote location may not be suitable for every traveler and by nature traveling there is not without risk.... More

On July 30, 2016 we took this tour, along with 24 other folks. It was amazing and beautiful. A bit to long, 9 hrs, it was over 100F degree's but the boat had a covered top. The views were magnificent. I think we were the only ones on the tour that paid full price due to GroupOn specials that we... More

This tour was on my husbands bucket list, so when I saw a deal on Groupon, I jumped on board. The boat was very comfortable. We had 34 passengers along with a captain and first mate. We stopped for coffee and muffins in the morning and a sack lunch at around 1pm. It took 9 1/2 hours which as a... More

Our group of about a dozen family members did the half-day tour of Hells Canyon. Jim was at the helm, and he was professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. We felt like we had made a new friend before the afternoon was over. Jim knew a lot about the history of the area and the geology visible from the river. We stopped... More

We had a wonderful time on the full day (leaving about 8:00 and returning about 5:00)Hell's Canyon tour. The weather was perfect (temps in the high 70's), the narrative interesting and the captain outstanding in negotiating the rapids. The lunch which was provided (included a large sandwich, carrots and celery with dip, chips, cookies and a drink) was generous and... More

Just got back from a fantastic day on a jet boat tour through Hell's Canyon on the Snake River. Was about a 9 hr trip as the guide, Capt. Bill, stopped frequently to relate facts and stories about local interests that greatly enhanced the trip - 175 miles round trip. The boat was comfortable and enclosed, so we didn't get... More
