We had a great time whitewater rafting with Mad River. We did the 2:15 trip which I think was great for us. I just think that it would be to cold to go right away in the morning. The bus ride to the river was good. The busdriver tried to entertain us and show us where various nests and beaver... More

We had an awesome whitewater rafting trip with Mad River! We did the 3:30 tour with a dinner stop. When we got there, the reception ladies were so friendly and helpful. It didn't get as warm that day as predicted and they suggested the wet suit....we were SO glad we did that! It was chilly but not bad with the... More

Had a wonderful trip down the Snake River with Jim Stackhouse and our friends. It was the first time rafting for all of us, and Jim made us all comfortable in the raft, pointed out wildlife and points of interest along the way, guided us through the rapids and left us all with great memories! The entire Mad River staff... More

Everything was great from start to finish. The staff was very friendly and helpful upon arrival. Our guide Adam was very nice, informative and experienced. His knowledge of the river and the surrounding area was a great compliment to the rafting trip. It seemed a little more pricey than other rafting trips I have done but given it is in... More

We have just returned from four days in Jackson hole. Prior to our trip I booked a White water rafting trip with Mad River Boat Trips. Wow what an afternoon/evening. They collected us from our hotel at 2.45 pm and drove us down to their offices. From there we were taken to their location at the snake river. Waivers for... More

For the first experience on the Snake we decided to do the late afternoon rafting to try to catch the wildlife. While we did not see any big game, we did see quite a few bald eagles. it was wonderful just being in the wilderness area of the Snake River. The 2 hours spent was filled with stories by our...

The river ride was great, but the pre-ride required computer entry program on iPads was very poor. Sun light created glare making reading the iPad screen very difficult; could not move the iPad out of the glare because it was attached to the table. A regular keyboard was NOT an option. Had to enter the same data three times for... More

Drove down from Jackson Lake Lodge and took the whitewater trip with Ryan as our guide today. It was the first time rafting for our 13 and 16 year olds and they absolutely loved it. The staff was all very friendly. The bus driver gave us a history and nature tour on our ride to the boat launch. The weather... More
