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

A very long, windy drive to get from the office to the launch site. Took the tour with husband and 3 girls (10, 7 and 3). (Just enough adventure to keep the older 2 interested, but definitely wasted on my youngest.) A nice trip up...More

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!

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

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
