Great, professional run operation. I wanted to go on the float trip but was outvoted by my husband and two sons so we went on the whitewater trip and had a fabulous time. We wore wetsuits and splash gear and were quite happy to find a toasty warm bus waiting to pick us up.

I'd done White Water rafting before (25+ years ago in California) & would have been quite happy never to repeat the experience. But I knew that my Other Half would love it, so I screwed up my courage & we booked - originally with another Company who messed us about so much we nearly abandoned the whole idea! However, once...

My husband and I spent a week in Jackson Hole, WY and decided to take a whitewater rafting trip. After much research (trip advisor, etc) we decided on Sands.. Ben was our guide and he treated 6 of us to a real adventure. He made sure that we all knew the drill about paddling and the instructions for intentional and... More

a white water trip on the Snake River was a highlight of our visit to Jackson; It was wet , wild and scenic. We had a terrific guide(Matt). Later we met Charlie Sands, a local legend.

Fantastic guide and great trip with Sands. Would suggest the white water trip for adventurous families - much more fun than float trips!

We're a family of four - two parents and two adult children - that had never done rafting before and Sands did everything right. They didn't oversell but warned us that renting wet suits/booties was a good idea, as was using splash gear. The rapids were mostly calm, with a couple of class 3s to make us a work a... More
