Main Salmon Shuttles

We pulled a permit for June 27th, have not done the Main and would like some suggestions for shuttle companies. It appears that jet boats may be a possibility but I am not sure I would want to support that. Thanks for any input.

I did a solo trip last year and hitchhiked my shuttle. Left the put in at sunrise, drove to the take out and hitchhiked back before sunset... and I was offered two jobs along the way.

All Rivers Shuttle is an excellent company also. Never given me cause for complaint.

Why hate on the jet boaters? That's like showing up to ride Slickrock and complaining that you see motorbikes. Jet boats are just a part of doing the Main.

I've heard, if you can work out the weight/people logistics, that jet boating up is the better way to go.

On one trip we got picked up by a jet boat after chasing someone's boat 2 miles downstream from his swim at camp. It saved us a long painful hike and was actually a lot of fun to ride in one.

Main Salmon Shuttle Fees:

Blackadar: $425.00 + $100 for fuel.
River Shuttles of Salmon $375.00 + $100 for fuel.
All Rivers Shuttles $350.00 + $100 for fuel.

These are all Corn Crk to Carey Crk prices from their web sites. So what does the extra $75 bucks get ya? Maybe I am missing something. ????
