The trip was very well organized and our guide, Jimmy, was experienced and fun. We never tipped over or fell out of the raft, for which I was grateful. The snake river canyon was beautiful and we were lucky to have good weather and a blue sky sunshine day. Our guide and another Mad River guide stopped to help a... More

You really need to REQUEST Christian Burke as your guide @ Mad River Boating...he has been described as "cool, calm, & collected"...he is that & so much MORE...a natural storyteller, he humorously entertains as you cruise down the river...factual knowledge, a few jokes, plenty of one-liners...beyond all that he explains the rules w/ firmness and just the right amount of...

We had an outstanding whitewater rafting trip. All of us--my husband and I, our kids and their spouses--loved every minute of our small boats, whitewater trip. Jimmy was our guide and he was as capable as he was fun, pointing out wildlife and cracking tasteful jokes along the way. I would certain recommend it to others. I'm docking my rating... More

Hello Ksmm! Thanks for your response. I'm sorry you had such a hard time with Groupon but I think I can clear up a few things for you. Our Groupon deal launched in February and it looks like you were one of the last people to purchase as it is now sold out. On the Groupon description it clearly states... More

Having done this as a kid, my husband wanted to whitewater raft down the Snake River. My brother lives in Jackson, and had heard Mad River's excellent reputation, so I reserved our trip, with my brother Steve, his wife Elizabeth and our boys. All of Rob's descriptions could not even prepare us for the experience. The scenery was magnificent, our... More

This was our 2nd snake river trip with our family. It was a great adventure and a lot of fun. We had one non paddler who was able to hold the go pro so we got some fun shots of the trip as sometimes you miss out when you are so focused on paddling.

This was my second time experiencing a rafting trip while on vacation and so far I can honestly say the experiences keep getting better. Our guide Fitz was a great coach with a good sense of humor. He was charismatic and allowed time for introductions and conversation. We were so fortunate to spot a bald eagle early into the rafting... More

Mad River Boat Trips is one of 7 companies in the area offering rafting trips on the snake river. Our guide Jimmy was a lot of fun and told funny stories and gave us history of the area as we floated down the river. The rapids are not very big - class 2 at the most. The big one is... More

This was my first time white water rafting and it was so much fun. Our guide Ryan was the best. We had children on our boat and he did a great job showing all of us how to paddle. It was a little cooler and raining the day we went and luckily Mad River rents wet suits which I highly... More

Well done, Mad River! Kept things well organized and moving from checkin to checkout. Bus driver was fun and kept us entertained until we reached the launch point. Christian did a great job quiding our boat. He even pulled me into the boat after swimming along side the boat (no small task: he's 175 tops. I'm 270). Will definitely be... More

This is a great choice when trying to do river rafting in the Jackson Hole area. Guides are experienced and fun. They provide quality equipment and wet suits. There are several options from 4 people per boat all the way to 16 people per boat. The fewer people, the more you have to work out, but the more exhilarating it... More
