We had a great time. The scenery was beautiful. A novice kayaker would have no problems. Trip was very much worth the cost. A Must Do.

Work (paddling) at having a good time (scenery) but don’t fall out (scary)

As a first timer, I was somewhat worried, but it all went well for me. Four people in our group of 12 went in the water. One person took about 20 min, another 15 min, to get back in their kayak. It’s not as easy as was told & demonstrated for someone to get back in. I think a person should be going along with the group just to help in case someone goes in the water. In some areas (the 2 cases) the stream is deep and the current is quite strong. Thank goodness there were a couple of knowledgeable guys along who helped them out.

Thank you for the good review! Occasionally, we do offer guided trips, so feel free to call anytime to ask when those might be available. The ease of which someone is able to get back into their kayak depends on a lot of variables, including the individual's level of experience and physical ability. We're glad everyone got back safely and hopefully had a fun and adventurous experience! :)

What a beautiful day for a great trip down the Snake River. Scenery was fantastic, staff were friendly and helpful, the whole thing was easy. We saw all kinds of birds (King Fisher, Sand Pipers, Red Wing Blackbirds, Blue Herons, and an Egret) plus the Wild Horses. We are definitely going to do this again.
