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!

My husband and I did a small raft rafting trip with the Dave Hansen group in July and had a great time. The weather was perfect and our guide was great. We got to see lots of wildlife and of course had a great trip down the river! Thanks so much!

My husband and I went on a day trip while on our honeymoon. We felt like we got a good white water experience and felt safe with our guide. I would definitely recommend to others!

It was still a pretty cold day but with our attractive wet suits we were kept warm enough. We met our raft instructor, Ian, at the river and we were given the option of sitting at the front of the boat where the full force of the rapids would be felt. Alex and Mattie immediately raised their hands. There was... More

Really enjoyed the whitewater with Cassie our guide. CT was also very informative during our scenic trip earlier in the day.

We did the combo scenic float/rapids tour package as a family and loved it! Was a very safe and scenic trip. Our tour guide was excellent! Took a quick dip in the Snake River and it was COLD. :) Would definitely do it again.

I went on the Dave Hansen River guided trip in July with a bunch of friends. Brooke was our river guide and she was awesome. Not only was it fun to talk to her, she pushed a few people out of the raft unexpectedly. It made for a fun trip and she also proved to be proficient in saving people... More

We took the snake river float trip. This is not a white water trip, rather a peaceful float down the snake river, capably directed by experienced staff who prove narration so you know what you are looking at. We saw Bald Eagle after Bald Eagle. Our guide nailing locations and telling us just where to look. We also gazed (from... More

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
