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

We spent eight days in Yellowstone, Grand Teton NP, and Jackson. Every day was great and the sights were spectacular, but at the end of the trip almost everyone agreed that our day with Dave Hansen Whitewater was the best! Everyone was so friendly and helpful -- from the girl who took my reservation on the phone, to the guy... More

Booked a trip with Dave Hansen after reading the many reviews. Seemed that all of the rafting companies in town had good reviews though. After walking into their office and meeting their staff, and reading the bios of their crews, we eagerly booked a morning whitewater trip. Everyone from the check-in staff, to the bus driver(Gene is a hoot), to... More

On all of our trips to the Jackson area, we had never done a whitewater raft trip. This trip though, we booked a trip with Dave Hansen Whitewater. Excellent choice! From the bus ride to the starting point with Gene, to the rafting with Miri and Alex, we couldn't have asked for more. It was so much fun! We will... More

We traveled to Yellowstone/Grand Tetons recently. The trip included myself, my husband, and our 13 and 14 year old sons. Our 13 year old has high functioning autism so traveling can be complicated at times. Though I did a ton of research I found very little to help me figure out what the best options were for our youngest. In... More

We had a morning run with Ian who was a great guide. The water was fairly high and we hit some big waves. Saw several bald eagles along the run. All the rest of the staff from the desk people to the bus driver were good to deal with as well. If you are interested in JH white water you... More

The guide (Conor) was professional, humorous, and excelled in his duties. I bought the adventure for myself with a package deal that included a nature tour with another company for my daughter. We did the nature tour first and this second. She wanted to go whitewater rafting again and again after this experience. We had a great vacation overall and... More

My mom wanted to do whitewater rafting but I knew it wasn't for her, then we saw the optional scenic floats and it was awesome! We went on the 7:15 float and saw moose, eagles, deer, etc. Our guide was very knowledgable and the trip was exactly what we were looking for!
