Tourists wanting the thrill of a whitewater experience without the strenuous effort needed in big whitewater like Hells Canyon has to offer, may like to run those same exciting rapids in a higher and somewhat dryer jet boat. The state of the art jet boats available today have powerful pumps that allow them the agility to maneuver through class 4 and 5 rapids with ease, safely. Being able to experience the deepest gorge in North America by raft or Jet Boat is being added to more and more Senior’s bucket lists lately. This is an opportunity for seniors to visit a wilderness area without having to ride a mule or carry a 40 pound back pack. They love it.
