We were nervous because the snake river was running very high and we were inexperienced but Hunter was our very competent guide and he took great care of us. We had an awesome experience and would do it again!

Never having been on a white water rafting trip, I was pleasantly surprised. The group is very organized. We had great safety meeting before the trip. Rapids were so fast, we lost 2 riders. Everyone did as they were instructed and we were able to...More

Beautiful trip down the Snake River about 2 hours. Bag lunch included. Scenery breathtaking and air so fresh and clean. Highly recommended for those who do not want to whitewater raft and rather enjoy the views! We saw 4 Bald Eagles!

Hi! Three of us are planing to travel there in first week of August. 2 of the 3 are very adventurous and 1 ( being myself) a chicken-bleep:) I don't want to be a stick in the mud and ruin a good time for them. My question is would a larger boat in earlyAugust be too dull for them? It will be first time for all of us. Ages 17 to 45.
