We had a great time on the river with our guide Kyle. We were a family of 5 with three teens in a small raft. Lots of fun - we even swam in the cold river in a few of the calmer stretches. One issue was the long wait - after showing up 30 minutes before our scheduled trip, as... More

We have been down quite a few Western rivers but this trip was one of the best in terms of the river. There were lots of different rapids and a lot of water flying and laughter. They were prompt to pick us up at our hotel and after about a half hour ride to the put in -we definitely got... More

Just returned from two fantastic rafting trips with family. Both trips ran smoothly, guides were professional, seasoned, and had great senses of humor! There are several rafting establishments to choose from, but what happened to me is one thing that makes SANDS stand out. I happened to leave my brand new $800 glasses, along with credit card inside my glasses... More

I figured why not try white water rafting while on vacation and I'm glad I went with Sands. My Dad & I climbed onto a 14 person raft (which included 4 young girls aged from 6-10) and had a great time. Our guide was Pierce and he was excellent! If you have the chance to request him, do so. Although... More

This was a new experience for our family (2 adults/2 young teen girls)-- and a memorable one! We booked the breakfast combo, which started with a scenic ride down the river, breakfast at the Sands campsite, and then the whitewater run. Scenic Tour Our guide was Ben and he was amazing. During the scenic portion, he pointed out animals and... More

We took a scenic lunch float with Deon. He was very friendly and did a great job! We were thrilled to see that our 5 year old was free!

OK OK - so its rafting, not surfing. And there is sightseeing and a big breakfast, too. But give it up for the team at the Sands - they totally deliver the goods! This was the 2nd time we have used Sands for the Snake River rafting trip. Our first time with them was 4 years ago and we had... More
