Based on past experience, late summer rafting can be a snooze. Water levels are low and rafting can amount to more of a float than an adventure. However, we were pleasantly surprised by our recent experience on the Snake River with Mad River Boat trips. We were a group of five adults and four boys, and we fit comfortably inside... More

Our family of six, (2 adults, and kids aged 14, 12, 9, and 6) did a white water raft trip with Mad River the first week in August. It was incredible. Just the right amount of scenic floating and rapids. Our guide, KC, was knowledgeable and made us feel very safe. We saw several bald eagles and a mountain goat.... More

Cme out to see Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Glacier, but this rafting trip was one of the highlights for our whole family. Both our son (8 years old) and daughter (10 years old) loved it, as did my wife and I. Our son paddled, our daughter and my wife "rode the bull" on the front of the raft. We all... More

From beginning to end this was a great experience. Fitz was a fantastic guide and he made the trip feel safe and a lot of fun. Fitz is very knowledgeable on the river. It's a beautiful 8 mile trip down the Snake River. We saw a young Bald Eagle on the shore with a fish he had caught and another... More

From the moment they pick you up till the drop off back at the hotel, it was all professionally done. Easy process at the "office" - signing paperwork on their iPad, grabbing wetsuits and hitting the water. I did the 8-mile white water rafting - super fun. In August the water level was a bit low (so it really wasn't... More

Our family went on a Mad River white water trip on the snake river in Jackson WY, and it was the best trip that we've ever had. Best organization! The staff in the office was the most professional of any rafting company that we've ever been on. Reservations, check-in, bus driver, and support staff were top notch. Best guide ever!... More

Our party of 4 took the dinner option for a float on a Saturday afternoon. When we got to the check-in everything proceeding great until they told us that an accident had closed the main highway to the launch site. They quickly gave us options to wait until it might clear, reschedule, or get a refund. I really appreciated the... More
