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 friendly staff assisted our group of 10....ranging from age 11 to 68....in finding wet suits and accessories. The shop had everything we needed. The guides were knowledgeable and fun. Safety was a priority without compromising the adventure. Wildlife was plentiful on this beautiful river trip and the guide shared observations and factual information on the area. This was a...

We traveled down the Snake River with Cassie as our guide. Cassie was great. We visited in late August so the rapids were a bit tame, but that was fine for my kids' (ages 11 and 13) first whitewater rafting trip. Our kids earned their "Snake River Swim Team" and "Bull Rider" bracelets, which they loved. Being able to see... More

My party of 8 took the scenic and white water trip on an 8 person raft. Christine was our guide. Definitely get the wetsuit if you are going on the morning trip. It is chilly on the water. Consider taking the blanket too. Get the booties too! We all wore the wetsuits and we were very toasty. Just after Christine... More

We had a great afternoon on the river! We are a family of four with two girls aged 10 and 12. I was slightly hesitant about the girls staying in the boat, but this section of Snake River is fairly tame with enough rapids to make it a great family activity. We booked the 8 man boat, on recommendation when... More

We did a scenic float down Snake River in the morning with John guiding us. It was very beautiful and we saw many bald eagles and ospreys. This was totally dry and easy, you just sit and enjoy the scenery. A packed lunch was provided because we were doing activities all day with them. In the afternoon we did white... More

We had an excellent time with Dave Hansen Whitewater. We were a group of 9 and were paired for with another family of 4 on the Class 2-3 whitewater trip. The boat was very high quality and large enough to fit up to 15 people. We were with our kids (ages 10, 10, 12, 12) and it was thrilling for... More

My husband and I wanted a float/whitewater experience on the Snake River while visiting Jackson Hole. We booked the scenic and white water trip for Saturday the 15th of August. The folks in the office were very helpful with our questions and concerns. We wanted an adventure without being terrified. With our friends (we are all 65+), we booked the... More

What a great day! We went on the 8-person rate with guide John, and had the best time. Our child (age 8) didn't know what to expect, but the minute we got underway and the water hit him, he was grinning from ear to ear. The guides know what to point out, and instill a feeling of safety and confidence.... More

Very enjoyable experience. My husband was in Jackson Hole for a conference, so I went on my own. I did a scenic float trip, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Our guide (sorry I forgot his name, but he is the one who graduated from Franklin and Marshall) was very knowledgeable, and kept up a lively patter about the wildlife in the... More
