Meet the Masons

Zach and Jessica met at the University of Idaho 20 years ago. That same year Zach went down the Salmon river for the first time, he was lucky to fall in love twice in one year. Zach worked as a rafting guide through college, has ran rivers all over the US. Worked charter fishing trips in the Florida Keys. But always had a spot in his heart for Idaho.

Safety is #1

Safety is #1

Here at H2O Idaho, safety is our number-one priority (with having fun as a close second!). Our guides have more than 12 years of experience and are all CPR/First Aid certified. Many have Swift Water Rescue training and Wilderness Responder training, too. We treat you and your family as if you were our own, and your comfort and safety is extremely important to us. Our day trips float along a stretch of the Salmon River with road access for emergency. Our overnight trips are equipped with SPOT locators—GPS tracking systems that allow our guides to call for assistance in the rare case of an emergency.
