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! « less

Definitely the highlight of our trip to YS and Jackson, our "float" down the Snake will never be forgotten! We enjoyed the first 7 (normal weather) miles, and, in a strange way, the final mile through a pellet-like downpour rain, strong wind gusts, thunder and lightning! Our guide, Lily, was truly a hero as she shepherded us through the storm... More

We were picked up right in front of our campground (Snake River Park KOA) an buses to the put-in site. After a quick orientation and donning PFDs, we were on the river, guided by Ginny. Our group consisted of my parents (mid-60s), hubby and I (43) and our teens (13 & 15). We chose the 8-man raft option and the... More

Our family of 5--ages 52, 47, 22, 17 & 15 did the Scenic/Whitewater combo as our first experience with river rafting. We stayed at the Snake River KOA the night before the raft trip which was very convenient.The scenery was beautiful! Our guide Keith pointed out lots of animals including Bald Eagles, Osprey, Beavers & Swallows. The combo package was... More

Our large family recently went on a trip to Jackson Hole, and this was one of our most relaxing activities. After days of hiking, running, and horseback riding, it was so nice to simply float down the river, eat lunch, and marvel at the scenery. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable of the area, and was able to spot several bald... More

My kids - 17 year old son and 19 year old daughter - and I really wanted to try white water rafting but my husband didn't want to because he thought he'd fall out in the cold water. So we compromised and did the combo with a float trip and then the rafting. And lo and behold he ended up... More

Whitewater rafting on the Snake River with this company was the highlight of our family vacation to Yellowstone and Grand Teton. It was a blast! Our guide, Rob, was amazing. The scenery is beautiful--we saw an osprey and a bald eagle over the river. Makes me wish I could live in Jackson all summer. Highly recommend this activity and company.

first time on a whitewater rafting trip and am hooked! Already planning the next one. Our guide, Cole, knew and loved the river. He made us hit the rapids perfectly and made the experience one I will NEVER forget.

We really enjoyed our snake river rafting trip. Brooke was a great guide. We had a smaller-than-usual raft that make things exciting. The river is great. My kids earned wristbands for swimming and 'riding the bull' or front of the raft through the rapids. The bus driver was funny and pointed out some interesting things on the drive. Everyone was...

Definitely worth taking time to do a rafting trip on the snake River if you are in Jackson. Would recommend Dave Hansen's white water rafting company to all. Our guide, Keith was very helpful and did a great job on the raft. We also had a wonderful bus driver that was filled with a wealth of information on the drive... More
