We were a family of 4 and we were put with another family of four for our rafting trip. We had a wonderful time. Lots of laughs with a sense of adventure. As a first time rafter, I was skeptical and a bit nervous, but it felt very safe, in control and yet had some good thrill moments. Our guide... More

Sands did a great job making this a great trip for our family. We took our 17, 10, and 8 year old on this trip and they wanted to stay on the raft. I highly recommend this company.

My family of 5 had an awesome experience with Sands Whitewater. I was a little worried because the river is only rated class 2-3 and we are used to class 4/5 rivers but I was not disappointed in the least. This river has big water with large holes and wave trains--feels like a roller coaster. It was one of the... More

I went on the 8 mile whitewater trip (8 man raft) with my two boys (14, 11) recently. We were excited and a bit nervous. We built confidence after going though a couple of the early rapids. Overall, the trip was pretty easy. When we were not going through the rapids, we were just sitting in the raft being sweep... More

Rafting along the Snake river was amazing. Had an entertaining guide named Reid who made the trip really fun. Got very wet and managed to stay in the raft the whole excursion. Kids thought it was a real adventure, even 11 year old thought it was great and not too intimidating.

We signed up for the evening scenic tour, dinner, overnight camping, breakfast and finally class 3 trip. We had never white water rafted before. Our Guide Kenny and Cook Charlie were the best. Kenny is knowledgable both in rafting and all aspects of the Snake River. Camping in Tee Pees was a great experience. If you have the time, please... More

Sands Whitewater came recommended to us from a friend who had traveled to the area a few times. We were thrilled with our choice! It was perfect for our family....my two kids being 14 and 10. We took the combo tour that included the 8 mile scenic, breakfast and another 8 miles of the white water. It was one of... More

One of our vacation excursions was the combination scenic & whitewater rafting trip @ Sands. They were well organized and had everything ready to go as scheduled. The bus ride went by fairly quickly to the launch sites. Both of our tour guides were entertaining and knowledgeable. While we definitely enjoyed the whitewater rafting adventure more, the scenic trip was... More

12 of us went on a trip with Stu, who was great. We had a range of ages between 6 and 60 and he made it a great experience for all of us. It made our trip to the Yellowstone National Park area especially memorable!
