We did the float trip they offered because we have a little one (6) who is a tad bit skeptical of the water, now our older two kids arent . Our Guide was awesome, funny and very knowledgeable about the area and wild life. It is a pretty mellow trip and you don't have to do any of the work,... More

The minute we walked into Mad River Boat Trips, the experience was wonderful. The young lady that checked us in was very sweet. Answered all of our questions and made sure we knew exactly what bus to get on. The driver of the bus was funny, nice and a good driver. The actual rafting trip itself was awesome! The guy... More

We rode the Snake with Mad River and Jim Stackhouse(guide) July 5th. Water was a bit high, so bumps and jumps were minimal, but the group did an outstanding job with our whitewater trip down 8 miles on river. Stackhouse was funny, engaging, and - most importantly - proficient at his job of keeping our work to a minimum and... More

I live 2.5 hours from Jackson, so I've floated this section of the Snake River before. In fact, my company does an annual trip with Mad River, so I went with them with family visiting from California. We had a great time. It was smooth from start to finish with checking in, the transportation to the boat dock, the river... More

We recently took the "big raft" Mad River Boat Trip whitewater trip on the Snake River, originating in Jackson Hole WY. A moderate amount of time is spent going to and from the launch site, as detailed on the company website.These rafts hold about 16 people and are relatively stable. Small rafts go faster but are less stable. The guide... More

I took my son and daughter on the Boatman's Breakfast trip. After a meal of breakfast burritos, fruits and coffee we hit the river in a "Super Small" raft. It's a six man raft but it was just the three of us and our guide, William. We all got thoroughly soaked and had a blast. WIlliam was great and very... More

We wished the white water boat trip had lasted longer! It was a beautiful day out on the river. The Mad River company was professional, and we appreciated that everything could be done online, in advance (booking, payment, signing waivers). Our guide, William, was funny, kind, and knowledgable. Everyone in the boat got wet and thankfully no one fell out,... More

We took the early morning white water rafting tour at the end of June. Our guide Nelson was the best! We had a very memorable trip and will definitely go again if we are in the area. Our three teenagers had never gone before and they loved it!!

I've gone rafting with Mad River several times over the past few summers and I ALWAYS have an amazing time. Their staff is incomparable to the staff of ANY establishment in Jackson, from booking your reservation to arriving to check in to the rafting trip itself, every member of the staff I have ever spoken with was polite, friendly and...
