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!

We were staying at the Koa and were taken to the rafting 40 minutes late. This meant the others had to wait for us. I'm not sure if this was KOA or Dave Hansens fault. The rafting was quite tame compared to where I've been before but the views more than made up for it and our guide, CJ, was... More

Took the scenic float on the Snake River and it was awesome to see the Tetons from the bottom up. Beautiful scenery all the way, with our capable guide Cassie, who was very informative and answered all our questions. We saw many, many eagles, some in flight and also pelicans. It was a wonderful way to see nature at its... More

I learn something new from the Guides every time I take this trip and there are different animals during different times of the summer. In July we saw LOTS of eagles (some actually catching fish), ducks, pelicans and marmots. In late August we saw a BEAR looking for fish on the side of the river. It seems like the animals... More

Our family of 9 enjoyed a great time rafting on the Snake River. All of the teenagers and parents came away with smiles and tales to tell. Our guide, Lily, was friendly, capable, funny, and caring. Will definitely go again!

very scenic ride the first 8 miles, very wet the next 8 miles. Wet suits were a great $10 investment for warmth. the pictures they sell for $108, which is a flash drive with 5 photos on it was a giant rip off. I would advise bringing a camera on the first 8 miles where it wouldn't get wet, then... More

In celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary, my husband and I went on the scenic raft tour offered by Dave Hansen. Picked up right at the KOA, the trip was very well organized and exceeded all of our expectations. The morning was foggy and we wondered what we would see. Much to our surprise, the fog brought in all kinds... More

Organized and nicely run organization. For our group, the "scenic" part of the float was just ok and a little too laid back for our crowd. However, our guide was great, personable and informative. Lunch was also generous in its proportions. The whitewater was a complete blast and again, our guide was great. Highly recommend this operator.
