You can whitewater raft many awesome rivers around the world, but few can beat the iconic Snake River! We enjoyed breathtaking Class III and Class IV rapids and in-between spotted incredible wildlife on the ground and in the air. Sands provided an expert guide and gave us a life-long memory! This is a must-do attraction while in Jackson Hole...

I have personally drove for Charlie Sands and his team of all wonderful people. I would recommend this company to anyone I know. I drove for both 2013 and 2014 so I know first hand the quality of this company. Have a great white water experience. Thanks from Doug Gentry.

We do the two part tour with the first part being mellow and allowing time for pictures and the second part being the rapids. Tour guides were very engaging and knowledgeable about the river and Jackson Hole. Though overcast, drizzling and cold, experience was a lot of fun (and wet). Great way to be outdoors and do something we normally... More

We had an amazing time rafting on the Snake River. Sands Whitewater is well organized, managed, safety conscious, and provides a fantastic level 3 rafting adventure. The desk staff are very good and pleasant. The rapids were fantastic even in July. Our bus driver was fun and pointed out the sites as we went to the launch. The guides are... More

We had an amazing combo float and white water trip w/breakfast on Aug. 4, 2014 (yes, I'm a little slow). The weather was cold and rainy for most of the trip, but we had a phenomenal time, thanks to the great front-desk staff and our guide, Ben. With the weather, the front desk staff suggested we wear wetsuits, and we... More

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I decided last minute to whitewater raft in Jackson. The Grand Teton lodge suggested Charlie Sands' Whitewater above all others, and they were right! And it was a very reasonable price compared with all the other ones as well. We had never been rafting before, but we're young and adventurous so we didn't... More

Honestly, we booked here because the other outfitters in town who do more internet advertising were booked. Boy, did we luck out! This was by far the BEST scenic and whitewater outfitter! From the reservationist who helped us build a perfect day of rafting that fit our schedule, to the friendly check in staff and drivers, and of course, the... More

We took the whitewater rafting trip on the Snake River in early September (fairly low water). It combined the worst elements of a rafting trip and a float trip in one horrible afternoon. You get wet, wear an uncomfortable splash suit to avoid freezing, then sit in the sun being bored for almost all of a two-hour trip. The bus... More

I purchased this trip as a Birthday present. He & I both loved it!!!!! Scooter made our trip first rate. If your interested in a scenic, wild ride, take a trip down the Snake River in August/September!

Guide staff were good young men. Reception staff was not friendly and seemed frustrated with guest. We did the all day scenic/white water with lunch. Lunch was a cold deli sandwich with two slices of turkey, thin tomato, and about two tablespoons of shredded lettuce. There was a bottle of water, snack size bag of chips, and a peanut butter...
