Owner description: Voted best of Jackson Hole for 5 years in a row. 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 had a group of 15 for our trip. We did the 8 mile scenic then 8 mile whitewater tour. When we arrived at the office, we were immediately taken care of. We enjoyed looking at the pictures covering the walls. Every staff member was friendly, even the bus driver! Our guide, Ryan, was AWESOME!! He had a great personality and got even our shy family members laughing and having a great time. The river tour gave us time to sit back and really take in the scenery, which was breathtaking. We saw several bald eagles and osprey. The whitewater part of the trip was so much fun. It was thrilling! This was a definite highlight of our trip out west. Thanks Dave Hansen for giving us an amazing experience that none of us will ever forget!!!!!!!!!!!!

My wife and I had rafted before but didn't get a great experience. After seeing the pictures of rafting on the Snake, we knew this was something for us. I felt the operation was very well organized and the guide very informative. You could tell he was very experienced. He provided enough pointers on safety to give us a lot of confidence in him and his timely comments going down river were well appreciated. We had a party of five and I know everyone was thrilled with the experience. We would definitely do it again.

The bus picked us up at the KOA Snake River, the bus was late. It had a stop before us. It was great that the rafts were down by the river and no need to bring them down. Been to other trips were you have to haul the raft down. We had Hunter as our guide who was funny, nice and informative. The trip was beautiful and fun. Not scary like some can be, so great for young kids. They offer bigger rafts were the kids can sit in the middle. We were a 9 man raft. Perfect! Would do this again in a heart beat. Just being in this beautiful sorroundings was worth every penny. Do get a wet suit or at least the jacket.. The waters are cold. Others on the raft were shivering , though we were not in our suits and it was a sunny day.

We all enjoyed the thrill of the rapids and felt challenged but not over challenged by them. Our awesome guide Ryan navigated us through for a tremendous experience.

This was a great half day activity for our family. From Gene "The Dancing Machine" who drove the bus to the launch spot to Alex who guided our raft and kept us safe, the staff was professional, entertaining and enjoyable. The Snake river was absolutely beautiful seeing it from the River and not a car window. Great whitewater trip!
