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 rafted with our two boys (ages 6 and 7) while visiting the Grand Tetons. The staff were all very competent from the check-in people, to the bus driver, and our guide. Great service and the actual rafting was fabulous! It's our third time white water rafting, and this was by far the best outfit/experience we've had. Definitely a highlight... More

Took the plunge and went white water rafting in June and loved every minute. We had just had a fresh snow melt in the hills so fully recommend the wet suit hire which I think was only another $10. Made for a great mornings adventure seeing the river up close and personal but always felt our guide was always in... More

We visited Yellowstone and Tetons, back country hiked and went horseback riding, but our family's favorite experience on our 2-week trip was rafting with Dave Hansen. My husband and I and our 3 boys (ages 14, 8 and 5) had a perfect first-time rafting experience. The office staff was very friendly and accommodating (even when I changed the reservation twice!)....

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
