Do you enjoy discovery and learning the history of a people & location tucked into the nooks and crannies of Idaho?
If you answered YES, start planning for a group jet boat tour with plenty of history lessons and FUN to be had for all ages.
Starting from Vinegar Creek boat ramp 26 miles East of Riggins, Idaho (The end of the road), you will cover 36 miles of river (72 miles round trip) getting to see many of the historic homesteads and sites along the river. Where many outfitters stop at Ludwig rapid (above Mackay Bar Ranch), our boats will continue to go! Enjoy the following sites:
- Polly Bemis Ranch
- Mackay Bar Ranch
- Buckskin Bills Museum
- Painter Mine (both sites)
- Reho Wolfe’s homesite
- Campbell’s Ferry Ranch
- Jim Moore’s Place
Evidence of their rustic existence in this harsh, rocky wilderness area are preserved as artifacts and exhibited in crude cabins along the shorelines of the Salmon River. We can stop and swim at any of the pristine Salmon River beaches along the way, then feed our appetites with lunch at Mackay Bar Ranch.
If you chose a two day tour, after a day of exhilarating sights and stories, Mackay Bar Ranch can accommodate your group 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 at our exclusive ranch!
