Blue Heart Springs has been on our list ever since we saw a Youtube video from some young Instafluencers and were amazed that this blue water was in Idaho!
We even used the kayak outfitter they used, Banbury Adventures a little ways down the Snake River.
It’s a good thing that we made an early kayak reservation before the crowds hit, because it turned into an absolute zoo after lunchtime.
With our relatively early arrival, we got to experience the balmy 59 degree water with only maybe 10 other kayaks around. When we peeked in on our way back down the river just after noon and it was jam packed, including a few boats anchored in the middle or along the shoreline.
Definitely worth experiencing once, the crystal clear water and towering lava walls are pretty unique.
If I had planned ahead I would have brought the drone in a drybag and got some great aerial footage – I can only imagine how blue this water is from above.
