Description: For over forty years Dave Hansen Whitewater has guided happy customers...
For over forty years Dave Hansen Whitewater has guided happy customers down the beautiful scenic and thrilling whitewater sections of the Snake River. Decades ago, Dave named the two biggest rapids, Lunchcounter and Big Kahuna, and we have been owned and operated by river guides ever since. The home of the 8-man raft and continuous scenic/whitewater combo trips, we offer the most friendly, personalized trips on the river. We’ll get you paddling, get you laughing, and get you wet!

The weather was not cooperating for us. We will enjoyed our time. They picked up me and my sons (9 and 12) at the KOA and off we went to the launch point which was about 35-40 minutes away. Bring a change of clothes. I didn't know or forgot it was going to be a long ride and our bus... More

I had a special request, I wanted to get engaged on our trip to Jackson Hole. After talking to all of the rafters, in town none was too helpful. They said that the time could not be taking to stop along the river. So when i called Dave Hansen the ladies said that they could make this happen for us.... More

Dave Hansen Whitewater is top notch. Every staff member we encountered was knowledgeable and eager to help with a smile. There are many outfits to choose from and we were not disappointed with Dave Hansen. Alex was our guide and was awesome. Our boat had 3 families with kids ranging all over the spectrum...Alex made it fun for all. We... More

I did the 8 mile whitewater trip at 10:45. My raft included all ages from 7 to 70. Everyone had fun, got wet, laughed and screeched, but stayed safe. The guides do a great job. One item of confusion is the 8 mile whitewater trip does not include lunch; I wasn't the only one confused about that. Some of the... More

We did the half scenic, half whitewater trip. Ian was our guide. He was the best. If they offer wetsuits, take them, including the shoes. The water is cold.

My wife and I signed up for the scenic/whitewater combo trip down the Snake River. First bit of advice, GET the wet suit, spend the $10 it is well worth the money! The mornings are cool, and the water is cold! The suit does not keep you dry, but it does help keep some of your body heat in. Our... More

This whitewater rafting trip is a thrill and Ian -- our guide -- has such vast knowledge about the Snake River and the Wyoming area. Our boat had 11 participants and we all immensely enjoyed our selves -- both padding and "riding the bull". You will see wildlife, you will topple rapids, you will float and bask in the stunning...

We went about 3 weeks ago and we are still talking about it! We had a great time on our trip with Alex. He was very knowledgeable about wildlife and the area. We did a combo scenic and whitewater trip. It was a great combo for first-timers. We enjoyed both segments of the trip! We highly recommend it for families... More

We had a great guide, Chase. Dave Hansen trip was very reasonable cost, around $70-80/person. Trip lasted a total of about 4hrs including bus ride. Great scenery, and the Big Kahuna was a blast! Definitely would recommend.

We have white water rafted here on the Snake River many years ago. We loved it then so much we have since rafted a few other areas when on vacation. The Dave Hansen tour was great. The bus ride out of Jackson is a good 30 min. and 45 min back to base. I assume this is true for all... More
