We purchased the Rush Creek Tour all day ride. The boat we used was 42 ft long and held about that many passengers. Seats and boat was comfortable. Had vinyl covering in the morning to keep the cold out and open in the afternoon to let some fresh air and water in. We had a couple issues with the reverse on one of the motors that did set us back a little but i understand things happen. The driver was friendly and informative and gave a nice tour. We had lunch at the ranch on the river that was nice. Next time I think I will do the trip to the dam and get into the really good whitewater stuff. Overall nice family run business. We stayed at Hells Gate State Park with our travel trailer and that work out seamlessly. Nice park and right at the boat ramp.

We took out of town family on this tour. 9 adults and 9 kids. Justin was so accommodating and friendly. I had taken other tours with the buffet lunch included and this one had box lunches so I was a bit leery but it turned out to be much better. Stopped at a picnic place where the kids could run around and the lunch was delicious. Lots of deer to watch during the picnic. Also, we went further than any of the other 1/2 day tours. All in all, I would absolutely go again with this company. Well worth the money!

We LOVED our day on the river with Snake River Adventures. Nate, our driver, and Louis, his deck hand, were FABULOUS. They were knowledgeable, kind and provided a great experience. We were on the boat from 8:00-5:30 on a large jet boat with bathroom on board. Lunch and drinks were provided. Lots of fun stops along the way for sightseeing and swimming. Would highly recommend it!

We were signed up to take this tour, being picked up in White Bird, ID as our tour from there was cancelled. We were told to be at the dock between 10:30 and 11 am. We drove 45 minutes over a gravel road and sat at the dock from 10:25 to 11:45 am. We were never picked up.

We returned and checked with the lady who booked us with Snake River Adventures. She called them and they said we should have waited 15 more minutes, they were just running late.
We lost one whole day out of our vacation due to this and would not recommend this company to anyone.

Our trip was so much fun. Can't wait to do it again. Justin was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable about the history of the river. It was a very hot day so it was fun to stop at some beaches to get in the water to cool off. We had lunch at Kirkwood. What a beautiful place and the museum was great. The trip back to Lewiston was a hoot, nobody minded getting soaked. It was all part of the experience. We felt very safe with Justin as our navigator. I believe he must have been born on a boat. I highly recommend if you've been thinking about taking a trip, don't hesitate to book it with Snake River Adventures!
