Very efficient, well run operation. Got to their office on time took, bus ride to put in point was right on schedule. Entertaining bus driver on the half hour ride. Air and water cold so dress appropriately. They have rain gear available if you don't have your own. The guide was great, and plenty of white water to crash through.... More

Well run, friendly operation. We went on 8/19/15 with adult and kids ages 13, 12, and 8 and everyone had a blast. Guide was skilled and very professional, bus driver gave sightseeing tips plus a bunch of corny jokes mixed in, and the trip itself was exciting. We will use Sands again next time we visit.

Mike led our group of 7 children and adults down the snake river. The experience was amazing and both kids and adults had a fabulous time. Mike, the guide was experienced, funny and made the trip all the more enjoyable. I would do this time and time again.

This is our 3rd trip over 25 years. They are a wonderful company and we have enjoyed their white water rides. They are safety conscious and their guides are very experienced. This time we did an 8 man raft and the main rapid Big Kahuna did not fail to excite us!! Our party consisted of 2 seniors, 2 adults, and... More

We did the 8-mile whitewater rafting trip. It was so much fun and our guide Chris was amazing! He was so confident and knew every inch of the river and exactly what to do wherever we were. He was also super funny and told great stories. The many class three rapids were so exciting and we got soaked during each... More

My 13 year old daughter and myself booked a trip with Sands to go on their white water 8 man trip. Our guide DJ did a great job with safety information and all the informative information on the Snake river and the surrounding area. We both had a great time and I would recommend this rafting company to anyone.

My daughter and I went on the float/overnight/whitewater on Tuesday/Wednesday. Our first guide was Matt--absolutely marvelous. And a great group! Our chef was Eddie who provided us with an outstanding dinner (including peach AND blueberry cobblers), as well as a hearty breakfast to stoke us for our whitewater adventure. When we began our whitewater, our group was divide into 2... More

We took the overnight rafting trip with our 3 kids (6,10,12). Matt was our guide and Eddie was our host at the campsite. This was by far, a top highlight of our 3 week trip. Matt was a fantastic guide with lots of patience with the kids. We saw lots of bald eagles on the trip and the rapids were... More
