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!

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.

For anyone who wants to just sit back and leave the paddling to someone else, this is the trip for you. The scenic float trip on the Snake River is serene and beautiful. We saw several bald eagles along the way. This company was very accommodating since we did not have a rental car they were gracious enough to pick... More

This two hour whitewater trip was an absolute blast! Not far from the launch point, we saw two bald eagles. Further on, we witnessed many osprey circling the Snake River. Mountain scenery along the entire trip was phenomenal. The rapids were so much fun, even for those in our group who were skeptical about going. Patrick is a boss. Super... More

Scenic tour with knowledgable guide. Staff had great attitude in processing reservation and getting us out to the launching point. The guide was well versed in wildlife and was quick to point out eagles and scenic highlights along the way.

We booked the 16 mile float & whitewater tour. Lily was amazingly sweet & a very informative guide. It was one of the highlights of our vacation. We saw Moose on the bank of the river and lots of bald eagles. The whitewater was fun. We were supposed to have lunch on the river according to the description instead they... More

We had an amazing afternoon trip down the Snake River with Tyler. He was knowledgeable and shared lots of fun stories about the area. We saw 19 bald eagles, including some juveniles. It was a pretty incredible way to spend the afternoon and take a break from some hiking! Floating down the river gave a unique perspective to see the... More

We had an excellent evening floating the Snake River with Jackson Hole Whitewater. It was relaxing and so much fun seeing eagles all along our trip. Would definitely do this again!
