We went on the The Classic Snake River Whitewater with Riverside Cookout adventure this past summer with out two children. The trip was fun. There was plenty of wildlife to see and some nice rapids. Since it was July the rapids were not crazy but good for the kids. While having dinner we were able to watch a few guys... More

So much fun and everyone was super nice. Plus the food was pretty dang good for it being cooked outside. Our guide was really funny and made the whole experience such a blast. I would definitely go back and recommend it to others at well.

How perfect is it to take a sunny day, your employees and the local owners down the Snake! We locals also need to experience our backyard, a great company and service, and relax during our busy summer season. It is a perfect way to absorb this beautiful canyon, jump into the water, listen to some tales, and paddle into the... More

Professional staff, equiptment was in good shape, including rental suits/booties. Informative guide, open to questions esp from the kids. Hot drinks served after arrival back at base.

We took the entire day of rafting where during the day you float the "scenic" part of the river and then at night you go through the rapids stopping in the middle to have dinner. Both of our guides were great and did a great job of pointing out the wildlife. The dinner was excellent. I would suggest this rafting... More

Thank you for your comments and we are glad to hear that your family enjoyed your rafting experience with us. We were caught a little off guard because we didn't have any participation agreements for children younger than 6 years old that day... We do want to caution all the families rafting with us to please take care when signing... More

We had a beautiful scenic float on the Snake River. The staff and our guide, Nate, went out of their way to help us enjoy our trip. Saw lots of wildlife and the water was calm. We met new friends also. Advise that this is one of the best float companies we've tried.

We went down The Snake River with Mad on our first day in the US having researched and booked with them in the UK before we left.
