Main Salmon August 2023

Just wanted to share that our group was very happy with the transport of our vehicles. One car had issues and the emergency contact was reached, vehicle was fixed and at the takeout! Great service.

Thank you.

A Fun-Filled Day With a Knowledgable Company!

Hunter and Bobbi greeted us at the Riggins city Park, and from then on, we knew that we were in good hands. Hunter was our navigator and guide; he is very knowledgable about rafting, Idaho history and the various wildlife found around the Salmon River. We encountered a few heart-pumping rapids which were a blast. We were lucky enough to be the only couple on that raft for the whole day - kind of like having our own private tour, which was really nice! Please don't hesitate to choose Rubicon Outfiters...they are very personable and courteous!

Well organized, generous - a delight!

I actually used Rubicon Outfitters to set up several vehicle shuttles for my own private trip. Dave Young , the proprietor, was very helpful and set up shuttles for 6 vehicles. He has a relaxed, reassuring manner, but he knows his business and runs it well. When you entrust this many vehicles to the care of a company, it's good to know that the guy who runs it is responsible and professional. Dave is also an impressive source of advice on having as much fun as possible on local rivers! I would recommend Rubicon Outfitters to anyone who wants a great rafting experience!

Great Outfitter for a private trip!

These folks know how to outfit a wilderness trip! We had everything we needed for a 6 day trip down “Hell’s Canyon”. We didn’t want for anything. If you want to experience the wilderness in comfort, call this company! Great experience made better by Rubicon Outfitters.

Bobbi was our guide and was wonderful! She gave us (my boyfriend, Ken, and I, it was just us!) great information about the river, we felt safe, had a great time and WILL go again!

Amazing river trip!

We did the full day river trip with Hunter - he was such an awesome, knowledgeable guide! The small company was perfect for this crazy Covid time and we felt very safe being the only family on the raft!

Too a trip down the Salmon with Rubicon Outfitters

It was wet and a little breezy but the water was flowing. Hit some huge water, had a great float, and great company eating lunch. Thank Rubicon Outfitters. Memories in the making and memories never forgotten.
