    We thoroughly enjoyed our scenic river ride with Dave Hansen Whitewater. Our guide, Sam, was pleasant, cheerful, knowledgeable, and witty. If you do not want an overly adventurous river rafting ride with excellent scenery, this is the way to go. We viewed eagles, geese, marmot, deer, and assorted other wildlife. We five ranged in age from 9-62. We all had a great time.

    Had the best time on our relaxing float with Ben. It was even a blast for our 3 children. Staff were friendly and they took all the covid precautions. Thank you for an amazing trip!

    Had a wonderful scenic trip with our guide, Alex! Saw eagles, osprey and beavers. We appreciated the professionalism of the company and their attention to cleanliness and safe social distancing while everyone is learning how to deal with covid 19. This was their first week open since the virus and they did a great job making sure everyone was safe but still had fun!

    Our family of three enjoyed the scenic float on the Snake River. All employees were friendly and helpful. Our guide Josh, was awesome. We met at their office and they transported us to and from the river. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who visits Jackson. Thank you for a great experience!

    The trip could only have been better if we had seen bears or elk. My daughter and I had a wonderful time enjoying the water, the sun and nature. Out guide, McKenzie(?) was a wonderful and professional guide. She handled the raft excellently and answered all of our questions. She expertly pointed out the wildlife we did encounter. Overall, an excellent trip.
