We had David as our guide. He loves the area and loved telling about us about it. A boat ride is important on our vacations and this was one of the best.

“Great trip!”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 via mobile

My husband and I went on an 8 person whitewater rafting trip. It was my first time and I absolutely loved it! Our guide was great and was not only helpful/knowledgable about rafting but he also shared great information about the area. Our guide was Ben. I definitely recommend going!

Thanks for your review Smccann106! The Snake River is definitely a great river for beginners, fun for those of us that have rafted before too. I'm glad you had a memorable first experience, and I hope one day you'll return for your next adventure on the Snake. I'll pass along your kind words to Ben. Happy New Year!

“Great Way to Cross White Water Rafting off your Bucket List”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

Our family of six shared the raft with a family of five and it just could not have been better. Tristan was our guide, he was extremely professional and extremely knowledgeable. We had children in the raft ranging from two teen boys (ours) on down to two 8-year old little girls. Tristan knew the teen boys could help the adults with the heavy paddling and placed the smaller kids around the raft in the safest yet maybe the biggest splash zones for exhilaration. He took us down the river and we had a combination of easy floating and then difficult rapids that were a thrill without being too scary. It was the most expensive thing we did on our entire family vacation (national parks are cheap, of course) but was worth every penny and I'd have even paid more. It was a memory our family will remember for a lifetime.

“Family Rafting Trip”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

We had 2 families that took the scenic white water rafting with breakfast combo trip. Our kids were ages 8 to 16, and we were all in the same raft. The ride was awesome and the breakfast was fantastic. We were able to swim by the raft during the slow period and hit a few good white water spots that rocked the entire boat. We would do this again.

“Whitewater Rafting Trip”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

The white water, half-day rafting trip was exciting and very enjoyable. We met in town at the store front of the company, where wet suits and booties were available to rent (for an additional $10). The group was then picked on a bus and brought about 35 minutes away to the drop off location. I was in a boat that carried a total of 8 passengers, plus the guide. We were in the water for about an hour, and I felt very safe the entire time. There were a variety of rapids; some big, some small. Regardless of the size, we were drenched by the end of the trip! Aside from moving through the rapids, this trip was also scenic and allowed me to see a different part of the Snake River. I did think there would be more “action” involved. From reading previous posts, I thought we would have to paddle more as a group, but we were really only required to paddle through the rapids and a few other times. In all, this whitewater rafting was a fun introduction to the sport, and I would recommend this to couples and families alike.
