Jessica was an amazing guide. We had a great time. and she really made us feel at home on the river. It would be nice if they had a better way to tip the guides at the end of the float.

Thanks, guys, for a great family experience! Will Walter was a fantastic guide, drivers from the hotel & to the drop off/pick up point were really nice, & everyone was very professional. The water was a little low but we saw bald eagles, marmots, osprey, & the rapids were perfect. It's definitely more of a rafting trip than a rapids... More

Trip was excellent, well organized from when we made our reservation on line until the finish. Everyone knowledgable, friendly, couldn't have asked for a better time. All informed provided on line prior to the trip was helpful and useful. Web site doesn't say anything about using your own life jackets, which it should, because you can't use your own so... More

We had an amazing time with Bobby in the super small boat. Definitely the way to go for more action and involvement. Everybody we met at Mad River was extremely friendly and knowledgable- a great group of people to talk to and ride the river. They have a really easy process of getting in and getting on the water and... More

Hi Michael, The Super Small boat is a great option for those looking for a bit more adventure on the river... they are definitely my preference when I go rafting! At Mad River, we do everything we can to ensure that each aspect of the trip goes smoothly, starting the moment the trip is booked. I am so glad to... More

Our rafting trip always great. We opted to do the first trip of the day for the $30 discount. This was a great choice and the morning was beautiful. The Rapids were quite calm and friendly to all ages and families. If you are looking for more of an adrenaline rush, I would try the 6 man boats, but our... More

MADRIVERJACKSONHOLE, Front Desk at Mad River Boat Trips, responded to this review

Dear Kathy, The early morning trips can sometimes be the best time of day to go because there are often less people on the river and there is a better chance of seeing wildlife- plus the discount is nice, too! The Small Boat is our most popular option, since it is a 'happy medium' between the Super Small and the... More

Our guide was Adam and he gave us much information while white water rafting. It was exciting, fun, challenging and great for all ages. We are both 73 and still a great experience.

Amazing staff, great views, great wildlife! Good for all ages, just take the larger raft for some stability if you have members of your group that are nervous. We were able to jump out of the raft and float down the snake river a bit. Would totally do it again.

Dear alincoln12, Thank you for writing us a review! The Snake River is great for people of all rafting abilities. The Classic Rafts (16 passenger) are the best option for those who are a bit apprehensive about rafting, or for families with young children. I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your trip, and we look forward to... More

This is our second year in a row rafting the Snake River in Jackson Hole. Both years we have gone with Mad River and their super small (6 person) raft for the ultimate thrill on the Snake. I would highly recommend Mad River. And if you are a thrill seeker, don't mind getting wet and paddling hard, I would definitely... More
