Mad River was one of the few outfitters with "small" 6 person boats. This allowed all of us to really get in "the action". It was our first time on the white water, and given our great experience with Mad River, we can't wait to get back.

I have experienced white water rafting on other rivers however; this experience topped them all. The Snake River provided beautiful scenery, lots of white water, and lots of action. The entire experience was top-notch - from booking the reservation, to checking in, to the driver who took us to the entry point, to the guide who made sure we were... More

We have gone down the Snake River the last two years with Mad River and both trips have been awesome. If we are in Jackson next summer, we will do it again. The guides were great!

Not only does Mad River offer exceptional trips to visitors - but they take care of locals too. We bid summer adieu just before the kids went back to school this year with a trip through the Snake River canyon as part of the Read to Raft program that Mad River has sponsored for the last 6 or 7 years....

My daughter and I spent a day in the Jackson Hole area on our way to Wyoming for her national softball championship. We were able to be accommodated at Mad River Boats as a walk-in for a great afternoon of white water rafting. Our guide, John Wayne was very knowledgeable about the Snake River and provided a lot of interesting... More

This was our third time rafting with Mad River and as we have come to expect, the trip was unforgettable. The staff at Mad River are absolutely wonderful. Our two guides were skilled, professional, and fun! We had two families rafting and chose the "Small Boats Big Action" to accommodate our group which turned out perfect. The trip was the... More

For the second year, we took our summer staff from abroad down the snake river on a gorgeous late summer afternoon. It was one of the most celebrated and cherished outings we offered to our staff during their entire stay! So much laughter, so much adventure, so much shared experience- it was a hoot. Our guide- since years with Mad... More

Four of us in my family made our first trip to the Jackson Hole area in Late-August, early-September of this year. We knew we wanted to do some whitewater rafting, but had no idea which company to book. Mad River definitely turned out to be the right one for us. We called multiple times before the trip with various questions,... More

We couldn't have picked a better time to raft the Snake River, or a better rafting company! BEAUTIFUL fall colors, and sunny skies. Our tour guide Adam was very knowledgeable, but also personable and fun. It was the best part of our family trip to Jackson.
