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...

We took a float & white water rafting trip down the Snake River with Sands in mid-August. My husband, me, and our 13 year old twins all had a terrific time! We did the 8 person raft and all got to row. The trips was well organized, well-run, had a good breakfast & wonderful guide, Mike. Even though he is... More

My husband and I did a rafting trip on our honeymoon. I was very nervous because of a bad experience in the past. Sam was our guide and he was awesome. He helped me get rid of my fears and it was such a fun adventure. I would do another trip with Sands!

Our family had a wonderful day on Snake River with AJ as our guide. We did the 16 mile combo and it was well worth it. AJ was fantastic and made it fun for everybody. My two daughters (6 and 8) had a blast and wanted to go back down as soon as we were finished. The breakfast was good... More

We did the combo scenic float/whitewater recently with our two kids ages 10 &12. Our 12 year old was apprehensive but ended up really liking it. We had AJ as our guide and he is awesome! The rapids were the perfect amount for our kids, even "the big kakuna". Sands was great; providing wet suits, because the day started very... More

My family & friends recently visited Jackson, WY & went Whitewater rafting on the Snake River. Pat, our guide, was very knowledgeable, safe, and made it fun for the entire group. I would highly recommend Sands and their crew. They are one of the few that still paddle their rafts (vs having raft mounted oars). They are very focused on... More
