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

it was raining, it was cold, it hailed at the end but the rafting down the rapids on the Snake river was amazing - excellent office staff, brilliant crew and Ben, the guide/steersman, the best thanks for a great 3 hours!

My first experience in white water and I can't wait to do it again. Perfect combo of safety and scary. Plus beautiful scenery. Would highly recommend to people of all ages. Do bring dry clothes to change back into on the bis ride home.

I must have seen over 30 bald eagles and many osprey. Also saw two beavers. Very fun time going down the rapids and the tour guides were very friendly. Overall an excellent experience.
