Jet Boat Tours

Jet Boat


Our Salmon River Jet Boat Tours can be customized to be grouped with other packages.

We depart from Vinegar Creek boat ramp and take you on a memorable Idaho jetboat tour right through the heart of the Frank Church Wilderness, passing many of the historic ranches that define the beautiful Salmon River canyon.

We will stop at some of the ranches along the way, sharing our knowledge about the history and diversity of the Idaho Salmon River Canyon.   We can stop and swim at any of the pristine Salmon River beaches along the way, and stop for lunch at our exclusive Mackay Bar Ranch and enjoy our wonderful home cooked meals.

After lunch, your jet boat trip will continue up through one of the rockiest rapids on the river, Ludwig Rapid, and take you to Buckskin Bill’s fortress and museum.

If you chose a two day tour, after a day of exhilarating sights and stories, Mackay Bar Guest Ranch can accommodate you overnight in one of our private rooms or private cabins.  You will dine on deliciously prepared home cooked meals and get to enjoy the amenities of Mackay Bar Ranch including stunning scenery, white sandy beaches, the sounds of nature and the flow of the Salmon River along side our ranch!

The Idaho river trip described above is perfect for those wanting to experience the Canyon and explore the history of the Salmon River!
