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.

Our ride down the Snake River was a wonderful end for our Venture Scout group's two week trip to Wyoming. The entire staff did a great job of handling our large group (44 people!). We went in two tours for a total of 8 boats and each group said how great their guide was. Our scouts were a mixed bag... More

The trip was two hours in a rubber raft down the Snake River where we enjoyed lots of great scenery, mostly relaxing with lots of opportunities for picture taking but we had some minor rapids through in for excitement. It was a fun, enjoyable experience.

We did a morning scenic trip that began with a nice breakfast at the headquarters. We had a peaceful float down the Snake River and took in many breathtaking views. We saw many bald eagles. We had hoped to see more wildlife but, what can you do... the animals keep to their own schedules. It was still a pleasant experience.

We have done white water rafting trips before and our last trip was on mostly class 4 rapids, which was a little scary for me, so I wasn't sure what to expect on the Snake River. I researched a few companies based on TripAdvisor reviews and called a couple. Rose, who I spoke to at Mad River, was so nice... More

Our family had a wonderful time on the whitewater raft trip on August 13th. Our guide Ryan was excellent! He made it so fun. We were booked for a big raft experience but had to be changed to a 6 man raft. I was a little hesitant, but the company made it an experience of a lifetime!!!! Not only was... More

There are many different trips to choose. I choose the 4 hr small boat trip that served supper. My husband I had a great time, the meal break gives you time to get out of the boat. Our guide emphasized safety while still being able to have fun. We saw osprey and an eagle as well as a mountain goat.... More
