The white water rafting was awesome! It was a first time and what an experience and beautiful part of the country! Our guide Katie really knew her stuff about Snake River and we felt very safe that she had good knowledge of the river and she expertly helped us through each rapid. We were extremely lucky to see an eagle perching on a branch beside the river so it was low down and looked like he was enjoying the attention as we sailed by and we saw another more juvenile one further down; being from the UK this was a speical thing to see. We also got an opportunity to swim at one point where the river was calm which desite being freezing was great to do for a couple of minutes! We can highly recommend Mad River Boats for this activity.

The only reason it is not a 5 star is because the scenic float trip rained out. This was the highlight of my whole reason to drive from Kansas City MO to Jackson WY was to float past the Grand Tetons. When it rained out I asked if they would let me rent an ATV. That was so perfect I could not have planned it. We set out and drove muddy dirt roads, equipped with helmets and rain jackets. By the time we got to the dirt road the rain had stopped, the sun was shining and we were having a blast with the Grand Tetons in our view. I highly recommend Mad River Boat trips. The staff was kind and helpful. They offered me a full refund if I wanted it. They answered all my questions and made it possible for me to remember this epic vacation to Jackson WY. If you are planning a trip book early.

So much fun! Our guide Xavi was awesome - really made the trip both fun and informative! Perfect activity on a hot day - the river was beautiful. Saw so many bald eagles!
As a heads up you do have to take a 40 minute bus ride back and forth to the launch pad but it’s built into the time. Also be prepared for a short walk up hill when heading back to the bus.
All totally worth it!

Reliving a family trip my wife took as a preteen nearly 50 years and my first time Whitewater rafting. Ironically we had Jeff as our guide whom my son and I had in March snowmobiling. Great tour company with friendly and knowledgeable staff. There were 5 of us on the boat plus Jeff.

We had a youth group of 35 people, and they were able to accommodate us very easily. The guides were fun and friendly. Everyone felt safe and had a wonderful time. Since you can't plan for fabulous weather in the mountains Mad River was prepared with splash jackets to go under our life jackets. They kept us comfortable even with the early afternoon rain shower. It actually added to the adventure and the experience.
Bald Eagles and Osprey along the river. Big clean rapids. Lots of fun.

I can't comment on value for money; my experience was part of an Austin Adventures tour. My experience was enjoyable and safe. In June the water is cold, so we received two part wet suits (or dry suits, I can't tell the difference) with boots in the same material. We also wore something like a rain jacket over that and then a life jacket. We had a safety briefing before the experience. I believe our ride lasted over an hour. It was fun and I never felt in danger. In the four rafts that went together, no one fell into the water. The raft guide gave us some occasional information about things we were seeing, where we were, etc.

They cancelled our reservation and booked us for a different time without our approval. We couldn’t make it to the new firm they booked us on and wouldn’t refund us. Maddie was rude and a big PITA I had to call my credit card company for a refund. There’s tons of white water rafting companies in Jackson don’t use this one

My husband and I brought our three kids along (ages 9,10 and 11). This was not our first time rafting, but was the kids first time. We got the larger boat as we thought it would be more stable for the younger ones. Our experience was great! The location was easy to find, preparing to leave was well organized, and the staff were welcoming and friendly. They provided us with wet suits, which I was very happy with since the water was still cold this time of year (late June). Our guide was informative, skilled and fun. We spotted many eagles and a variety of birds as we made our way down the river. We had so much fun and an experience we will never forget!

The best part of our experience was our guide, Britnie. She was expert at guiding our raft with all of us paddling along. She was incredibly fun and had lots of exciting ways to enhance the trip on the Snake river. We all had a chance to ride a rapid on the very front of the raft. She would also let us stand on the front of the raft in calm waters and then we would all spin the raft and see how long the person could stay standing. It was such a rush! I highly recommend the adventure!!

Well run and organized. The wetsuits and booties were clean and kept us warm. The guides were competent and personable and made sure we had a safe adventure on the snake river. Our first time white water rafting and we loved it! Highly recommend
