Salmon River Idaho Jetboat Races

The mother of all jet boat races returns to Riggins Idaho the third weekend in April, from the 19-21, 2013.

Get ready for big horsepower, amazing drivers and navigators, spectacular boats and engines, and lots of fun in the small town of Riggins! On Idaho's Salmon River, no one puts on a better jet boat show than Riggins - this is their 29th year!

This is an event that lets you in on the fun and thrill of race boating. There is speed, adventure, risk and a lot of challenge involved.

Watch for free from the river bank in Riggins as jet boat racers from Canada, Mexico, New Zealand & the U.S.A. compete in the final legs of the 2012 U.S.A. World Jet Boat Championship! Don't miss the action as jet boats race up to 140 mph on one of Idaho's most thrilling whitewater rivers!
