“My wife, daughter and I would like to express our delight with the OARS trip we took down the Lower Salmon Gorge this year. There were so many highlights it would be impossible to list them all. But without a doubt the one highlight we have to mention was the crew assigned to our trip. They were six of the finest young men my wife and I have met. We will always remember our first river trip because of the spirit, enthusiasm, professionalism, safety and fun they constantly provided. A company is only as good as its staff and if our crew is representative of the rest of your company, what can I say but You are the greatest, congratulations and Thank You.”

“We just returned from our first trip with your company. We just wanted to let you know that we had a great time and we absolutely loved our guides. They made the trip so much fun for us all (and even our finicky, high-maintenance kids!) We look forward to our next trip on the Middle Fork either next year or the year after that. Seriously, it was even better than we thought it would be. We are having river withdrawal in a big way! Being parents isn’t always an easy job and we think an important part of it is to give your kids experiences that they can keep with them in their heart. It is safe to say that this trip will be with them in their hearts and minds (ours too!) for a long time and a big part of that is due to our guides. We thank them for that and much more! Looking forward to seeing the river and them again as SOON as possible! ”

“By all means, the trip leader and 2 other boatmen absolutely made the trip—I especially liked the emphasis on cleanliness and safety. The meals were very nutritious. I was able to see a part of Idaho I have never seen, having lived here all my life. The lower Salmon was a feast in more ways than one.”
