Sailors learn to be experts at knot tying, from securing the vessel with a tight anchor hitch to securing the captain after he succumbs to madness and tries to eat his own hook hand. This Groupon is a mutinous bounty.
$85 for a Nine-Hour Jet-Boat Tour of Rush Creek (Up to $175 Value)
During the 182-mile roundtrip cruise, licensed jet-boat captains ferry up to 20 passengers through Hells Canyon. Jagged mountains loom on either side as the boat winds its way over Snake River through North America's deepest river gorge. The canyon is mostly inaccessible to anything but river craft, and Snake River Adventures takes the tour all the way out to the end of the river's navigational markers. At that point, the tour takes a respite at Sheep Creek Ranch. A continental breakfast and personal box lunch are included, and beverages include coffee, orange juice, bottled water, and soft drinks.
Snake River Adventures
Snake River Adventures makes the scenic waterways of the Snake, Salmon, and Clearwater rivers accessible to outdoor enthusiasts and curious sightseers alike. Licensed jet-boat captains ferry groups through natural wonders, such as Hells Canyon—America's deepest and most inaccurately named river gorge—and manmade locales including the Kirkwood Historical Ranch and museum. Hunting and fishing expeditions may be chartered to snare the bass, trout, steelhead, and sturgeon swimming the waters as well as the big game roaming the shore. Comfortable camp may be made at Historic Sheep Creek Ranch—furnished with wood cook stoves and oil lamps—or the Kirby Creek Lodge bed and breakfast.
