THE HCA DIFFERENCE

We’ve built most of our business on referrals, and we’re proud of that. We know that for many people, Hells Canyon is a once-in-a-lifetime bucket list trip — our job is to make every moment count.

Location. HCA launches all adventures from the south entrance of Hells Canyonstraight into the wild section of the Snake river, considered the best portion of Hells Canyon (the heart of the canyon). From the moment you step on our boat, you’ll be in some of the most pristine country in the West.

Pricing. Comparing costs with other Hells Canyon outfitters, you will always save money with HCA when comparing similar tours. Transparent pricing, no upcharges or hidden fees ever.  

Safety. Most of our customers are a bit outside of their comfort zones when they’re with us, which is why we put such an emphasis on safety. You’ll be required to wear life jackets, and you’ll be briefed about standard safety procedures. Our boats are up-to-date on inspections and maintenance. We often tell clients that we take our own kids on our adventures — and we do.

Knowledge. We’ve been running this river for 45 years, and we know every swell, swimming spot, and historical area in the canyon. We know your time is important, so each trip is jam-packed with information and opportunities for fun and reconnection.

Service. You’ll be taken care of from the moment you book your trip. We email everything you need to know to get started — what to pack, the best way to travel here, where to stay, and so much more. We follow up throughout the process to make sure you have everything you need for your adventure. Once you’re on the boat, the service continues with our guides — they’re always available to answer questions and share their knowledge about our stunning canyon. Our thoughtful approach to service is why our customers re-book with us year after year.

Accessibility. We’re the only company that offers a one-day
jet boat and raft trip on a weekly basis because we want everyone, regardless of time, to have the chance to explore this amazing part of the world. We’re used to guiding people of nearly any age and ability on our boats, and we accommodate special needs. Call our office to learn about how we can help.
