Our guide was Will and absolutely amazing. We had our two young boys with us and he was great with the kids. He pointed out all the Eagles and other birds we saw along the way. My youngest even spotted 4 River Otters swimming right along our raft. When we were at a calm area Will, let each kid stand... More

The whitewater rafting was top notch and an incredible experience, but what made it truly memorable and amazing was our guide, Dean. Try to get on his raft if you can for a good time - he likes jokes and riddles. He also sometimes goes by "Steve". We <3 Dean!

We took the 3 hour lunch river float trip and loved it. The scenery was magnificent, the trip relaxing, quiet and peaceful. The float was a 7 mile trip down the Snake River that was peaceful, quiet and beautiful. There was limited wildlife on this particular day but I can imagine that there would be more if you were lucky.... More

Our family of 5 could not have had a better time. Dean, our guide, was very knowledgeable and made sure everyone got wet. We were whitewater rafting after all. We started our with the scenic float where we saw wildlife, learned about our guide, and enjoyed friendly conversation with the other families in our raft. We stopped off for a... More

We had a great time on the Snake River with our guide Reed. He was extremely knowledgeable and made sure we had a lot of fun. From hitting the rapids hard, to surfing and riding the bull there was not a shortage of laughs. The highlight was our run through the Big Kahuna. Let's just say the groom has a... More

I've been whitewater rafting before but this was such an easy, classy business to go with. The trip itself wasn't as long as other whiterafting trips I've done, but that's what made it a nice thing to do with friends and family. Our rafting guide, Dean, really made the experience so much fun and enjoyable...Dean got the group through the... More

The Snake River south of Jackson, WY, alternates between calm eddies, fun riffles and exciting class 2&3 rapids. First is the 1 hour ride south of Jackson in a moderately comfortable bus. The 8 mile section that B-E Whitewater covers in the 2 hour trip is led by experienced and fun loving guides who put safety first followed closely with... More

I've been on rafting trips before, but this was by far the most fun I've had thanks in part to the other patrons and to our guide, Dean. We passed by a number of other groups, (because we were so much better than they were) and I don't believe anyone had a better time on the Snake River than we... More
