REVIEWS OF Mad River Boat Trips IN Wyoming

Austin Cochran

I had an amazing trip with Mad River! I chose the small boat adventure with dinner, and it did not dissapoint. The entire crew was energetic and friendly. I had Ryan as my guide. He was entertaining and I had a blast soaking the other boats! Good times :)

Jt Money

Awesome awesome! Ride was epic but was short. Business is located a good 30 min from drop off point but still gets 5 stars. Guide was awesome and we all had a blast. It was cold today, overcast and rain showers, they gave us wet suits at no charge. Will be back.

Shannon Feeney

My husband and I had so much fun. The trip got your adrenaline pumping, but it was never TOO intense. The whole Mad River team who put the trip together are very organized, which made the entire experience great. Would do it again!

Paul Birmingham

Fantastic guide, a lot of fun and very informative!!!

Clint Harris

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area and very friendly! Helped with everything! If we go back to Jackson Hole we will definitely go with Mad River. Next time we hit white water!

Mikayla Shields

Family of 5, 3 kids 2 adults went on this 8 mile rafting trip with Sam as our guide and it was awesome! One of the best experiences and Sam is full of fun facts and little games to play in the calm areas of the river. Had dinner booked by Ty half way through and it was AMAZING probably the best food I've ever eaten, seared Tuna, BBQ'd bison, mint coleslaw, homemade pickles and jerky, chocolate chip brownies, jalepeno cornbread and delicious green beans. The whole experience was amazing and I can't wait to do it again!

Jackie Wyman

I had such a fun and amazing experience white water rafting with Mad River. Their guides are very knowledgeable and friendly. When I go again, it will be with Mad River!

Beverly Allison

Most interesting float trip! Guides were very knowledgeable and personable. Learned our names and shared the moment with us. Even the kids enjoyed the morning's trip!

Nathan Willi

Nate was our guide on the Snake River rafting trip with Mad River boat trips. We had 6 people in a boat with him, and we all had a blast. I have done a fair amount of rafting between the Colorado River and out in West Virginia, and this was one of the better groups I have been out with. They feed you a phenomenal meal on the trip as well.

Monica Banghart

The float trip was very nice. The day of our trip was windy and snowy, (June 7) we opted to do the trip any. Out guide was knowledgeable and friendly, pointing out animals all along the way. I expected the geese, moose, and ducks but was happily surprised to see 5 bald eagles. My husband and I will use Mad River Boat Trips if we are ever in Jackson Hole again. Next time we will try something else.

Steve Kirchen

We had a great time with Boone he new the river and you could tell he just loved doing what he was doing. The trip was organized and we had an AWSOME time. Looking forward to coming back next year and catching the river earlier in the season!!

Suzy Hager

Wow! What a great experience. Mad River had all the wet suits and boots in every imaginable size to help us brave the whitewater. Safe and professional guides from beginning to end. Wonderful experience, wow just Wow!


We had a great time with our large group on a scenic float trip with Molly as our guide. The scenery was spectacular and Molly took the time to point out many bald eagles along the way. She kept the youngsters engaged and happy. Would definitely recommend Mad River to anyone visiting JH.

Robert Felber

Friendly and knowledgeable guides. Great time. Would not hesitate to use them again.

Joey Armstrong

This was the funniest thing we did on our 26 day summer vacation. We loved every minute of it and our river guide was amazing.

Matt Wagner

5 of us took a morning scenic float and it was just a beautiful and relaxing way to spend the morning. The crew & guides were amazing. Very informative, super friendly and make sure you have a good time. I will be visiting again next time I'm in Jackson!

April Gamelin

Thank you for a wonderful time! The staff was friendly and helpful through booking and just as wonderful the day of helping everyone in our party get wet suits, dealing with questions, helping with a small situation we had come up and shout out to our raft guide Jimmy! We will be back sometime.

Amy Nielson

We always choose Mad River for our whitewater trips. They are very professional and make our safety #1. Great guides too.

Diane Kaplan

Amazing trip!! Our guide Marc was so much fun and taught us a ton about the river and the area. We had paddled with Mad River 26 years ago and have to say they are still as amazing as we remember. Thanks for a spectacular day!!

Rob Gilliland

excellent trip, with an excellent guide (Mark), a lot of fun. excellent info along the trip, about the river, area, and pointers on how to get the most out of working the raft. highly recommended.

Kelley Showalter

Highly recommend Mad River! Such a knowledgeable guide who was friendly, informative, and fun! My family had so much fun, we are already talking about going again! Thanks so much Nate for making my families first white water trip a memorable one!

Jill Hogan

I loved it! Great family memories! Everything was perfect. We did the dinner trip, I would highly recommend this. We had the best captain Swimmy Jimmy. Mad River from the moment you book till the time you leave was first class. My kids 11 and 15 loved it.

Eric Bradshaw

My girls & I had a fantastic time hitting the White Water!!!

Erin Mitchell

This was super fun--a highlight of our vacation. It was 55 degrees, but they provided wet suits. That kept us from being too cold, so we were able to have an awesome time. Our guide was Ryan, and he was incredible.

susie o'donnell

We had a blast! Katie our guide was awesome. Super knowledgeable with great stories/facts of the area. Saw lots of wildlife.

Drew Pomeroy

Amazing experience with great river guides

Patrick Dunn

Wow did we have a good time. We went in late August which tends to be a more laid-back time for rafting given the melting season is basically all but over...we hit about 10-12 class 2 rapids and one class 3. KC is the group leader and was also our guide and he was phenomenal. The guides were very knowledgeable about the rapids and the river as well as the surrounding area. I highly highly recommend Mad River Boat Trips to anyone looking to go rafting with a spontaneous and highly energetic crew that will almost guarantee one of the most memorable experiences of your lifetime.

Huy Nguyen

This was my first ever whitewater rafting experience, and it was wonderful. The view was fantastic and definitely guaranteed to overwhelm anyone. Saw many bald eagles along the way which was pretty cool. Our tour guide Katy is amazing, funny, experienced, and very approachable. Had an awesome time. Be prepared to put in a workout with all the paddling. The only reason why I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think it's a bit on the expensive side (about $80 per person). If they can get it down to around $65, that would be perfect. =D

Amy Scott

The process is organized and efficient. Be aware that during periods of low flow (August - 3000 cfs) the rapids are few, short, and far between. Our rafting was more scenic float than exhilarating adventure even though we booked the small boat rapid excursion. I wouldn't repeat the trip considering the cost, but the company itself seemed great. They provide splash gear free of charge.

Jim Vallilee

8-mile glacier cooled rafting down Snake river, some class 3, with depths up to 65 feet. Great little run through Champagne falls and bumping into several friendly local beer drinking river rat groups.


Amazing experience with the entire family!! Our guide was also amazing made the experience that much more enjoyable!! Thumbs up for Mad River!!

Peggy Crooks

Couldn't of been better! What a blast! Thankful for the wetsuit, I'm a woose!

Katelyn Davis

Molly was an amazing guide! So much fun, every time is an amazing time.

Hawkeye Dave

My wife and two kids had the greatest time rafting down the Snake River with Jimmy! He was a blast and helped make it an enjoyable experience for my younger son, who was a bit anxious about the event. Thanks to everyone at Mad River for making our day!

Becky Deaton

We had a wonderful experience with Stephanie on our scenic river boat trip. She was a wealth of information and entertained us the entire trip. Excellent experience. She is top notch!!!

Paula lamb

My husband and I booked this river rafting trip for August and had a great time. The guide was very knowledgeable about the river and local area. Our trip included lunch 3/4 of the way through the ride on the beach. The food was great. We felt very safe with our guide. The river is not as wild or cold in August as it is in June so if you want a more wild ride go early in the season. We were happy with the more lazy river and only a few wild spots. The company did provide rain jackets to help you stay dry. We would definitely recommend this adventure.

Steve Slater

A great trip down the river! The whole group had a lot of fun. Our guide Ian was great! We would love to go again!

Jeremy Mckaig

Fun whitewater rafting with great guides!

Tracy Cartwright

Awesome trip. Did the full day scenic/whitewater trip. 18 miles total on Sep 6,2015. Our guide, Jessica, was very informative about the area and was fun to ride with. We hit 2s and 3s and she made the most of each section. The entire crew is well organized and it's a smooth operation. Worth the money to go through it.

vic braman

MadRiver has been a rafting service for my Ex-employer for decades. My wife suggested we go, since we enjoyed the Gaulley and New Rivers back east. The parties and Captain were fabulous

Mitch Bott

Mad River was a great experience. We were late to our scheduled time (our fault) due to some confusion and Mad River was very accommodating and understood our mistake and put us in a later group with no additional charge. The trip itself was a lot of fun and our guide was great. A wonderful company. Very laid back and happy to make sure our river trip was a blast.

Tim Shiner

Great experience everyone was 1st class! We had 12 people and we are were 100% satisfied! Sam was our guide super cool guy and literally ran a marathon the day before our float and did a great job!

Jeremy Banghart

Guides we're experienced and friendly. It rained almost the hole time but still very pleasant.


Great guides on the water! Saw otter and mountain goat, that was new this time. See you again.

BTG Solutions

Thank you Christian for making our first scenic trip on the Snake River informative and exciting. We were impressed with your personal stories and hearing of the training required. And to the staff who matched us with the Iowan family - we were so pleased to be a part of their group. Everyone appreciated the specialty sandwiches and double chocolate moist brownies. We will be sure to visit Mad River Boat Trips again!

J. Grey Faulkenberry

I thought this was a lot of fun. It's a couple hours of rafting down the river, cold water (but they give you lots of layers). I can't say it was terribly different than other rafting trips I've done, but they've all been pretty good, so no reason to complain. We had little kids on board and they did fine too. So as long as you're comfortable swimming (just in case, we didn't even come close to tipping), this trip is great for everyone!

Steven Brennan

We had a great day on the river. I would recommend this company as they were very professional and courteous. The guide was great with the kids and put everyone in the boat at ease. Great experience for the whole family.

Scott Hightower

We had a great time on our Mad River whitewater rafting trip during our recent visit to Jackson, Wyoming! Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and we really enjoyed getting to know him. We would highly recommend Mad River!

colleen basil

Had an amazing trip with Mad River. The crew at check in and set up was very friendly and helpful. Our guide, Bridget, was amazing! She knew fun and interesting facts about the river and wildlife on our trip. She made sure that we had a safe trip, but that everyone also had a fun and exciting time!! Could not speak more highly of her and this trip!

Jennifer Slayman

The experience was great and our guide "Cory" was very experienced/knowledgeable and made it tons of fun.

Brian Shelton

We had an epic time on our rafting trip! A Professional staff and great service. Our guide was very knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor! He indulged me by answering a bunch of geology questions. Our only regret was it was too short! Many mahalos from Maui!

sharon higginbotham

Great place

VaLene Hulme

We had a blast. Our guide was really informative and fun. I had complete trust in him and his abilities. Wish we could've turned around and done the whole thing over again.

Emily Brown

Thanks Mad River and Rob for the trip of a lifetime. We took our 8, 10, & 12 year old on the rafting trip and experienced nothing but a good time. The team furnishes you wet suits and you can rent booties and towels for an additional fee. Our guide was was very focused on safety which is a plus with smaller children. Keep your eyes for bald eagles.

Renee C

Wonderful experience, and Mr Bobby was an excellent tour guide. He both educated and entertained us on our trip!

Mandy Klein

We absolutely loved this! Our kids were age 9,11, and 13 and had a blast. The 9 year old didn't paddle, she just felt comfortable setting and holding on. We were on a small boat which was perfect. Our guide was not only experienced and very comfortable on the water, but also very entertaining and made us laugh. I never once felt unsafe as the rapids are short lived and all the safety precautions were reviewed at the beginning of the trip. I would definitely recommend Mad River Boat Trips to my friends.

Executive Office P.W.M.

Smiles for days.... Our family took a Mad River Boat Tour down the Snake River in Wyoming. It was amazing. We had the best guide, Ryan! He was so informative and personable. We all had such a good time!!!

Susan Kelley

My daughter and I had a blast on this scenic trip! We went July 17, 2019, when the water of the Snake River was very high. Because of that, and because the water was murky, we were able to see Bald Eagles on sand bars, looking closely for fish. Beautiful! The trip was relaxing and fun. Our guide, Jeff, was knowledgeable and funny, as was his guide in training, Athena. We did white water ten years ago, but I am older and wanted the time to see life on the river. I highly recommend this trip. We had so much fun!!!

Rochelle Dreksler

"That was intense!" - Winnie, 6 years old Fun family activity, it was the highlight of our vacation. Exciting going through the rapids, and a relaxing raft ride on the calm stretches. FYI, our 6 year old was too small to paddle and rode in the middle, but another child in our group that was 8 was big enough to be a paddler. Our guide, Ryan, was great. He was knowledgable and made for interesting and fun conversation the entire trip.

Liz Botkin

We had a blast on Mad River's small boat trip! Our guide, Ryan, was fabulous. He did a good job teaching us what to do and being prepared for the various river conditions. He was also fun and entertaining! He started out getting to know us and getting a feel for our skill level. Then, he pushed us just a little past our comfort zone...exactly the trip we hoped for! The photographers also did a fabulous job and got some amazing shots. The pristine river (tortoise with amazing clarity) is something I'll never forget. PS: We were very happy we did wet suits, booties and splash jackets!

Andrea Craft

What a wonderful rafting trip! This was our favorite part of our vacation. The weather was perfect and we saw several eagles, marmots, pelicans, and birds. Our guide JR was outstanding and very knowledgeable and fun! Next time we come out west we will definitely so this again! Thanks from Georgia! The Crafts

Chelle B

Wonderful guides, wonderful time. Can't wait to do this again. If you're an out of towner, remember that even August is 50 degree water temps! Great fun either way you look at it!

Emily Wilson

I had a really good trip! The guides were very personable and explained things on the river clearly and concisely, and paid good attention to safety. We went over some big rapids on our part of the river, and had a lot of fun. If you have kids or friends and are looking for a good adventure, Mad River is the way to go!

Mark Moody

This is not the first time I’ve been down the Snake River with Mad River and it won’t be my last time either. I have always had wonderful guides that can tell you all about the river, the rapids, how things have changed over the years, etc. and have always felt safe while having a great time. Our guide this time was Ryan and he was absolutely awesome! I’m a huge fan of Mad River and will definitely make reservations with them each time I go to Jackson in the summertime.

Robert Holzworth

Continuously fantastic float guides. Great staff and equipment!!

Sharon Barilec

Thank you to everyone at Mad River Boat Tours for an amazing and FUN experience on the Snake River, WY. The staff was welcoming and very informative. We were very lucky to have Sam as our guide. He was AWESOME and definitely ensured we had the best experience. Thank you Sam! We recommend Mad River for a guided group tour of the beautiful Snake River. Sharon & Andy, Buffalo NY Alex & Courtney, Ogden UT Cait Barilec, Driggs, ID

Moby Richard

Well run rafting company. Quick in and out, great equipment. Our guide, Christian, was awesome! We hit the rapids perfectly and he was very good at giving instructions. He was also very entertaining. The river was a perfect combination of excitement and scenery. Would totally recommend Mad River company to raft the Snake!

Karen Skaradek

The rafting trip was Fantastic!! The scenery was gorgeous and our guide ,Ryan, was not only informative but possesses a great sense of humor! Thanks for the memories!!

Hunter Keetch

Ian was an awesome river guide. We had a great experience.

Jason Martin

So good we did it twice. Jimmy and Ian were both great guides. The super small boat with just our family was a treat, thanks for accommodating us. My kids are still talking about "lunch counter".

Joseph Maranzano

Great trip. Our guide, Bobby, was terrific. He explained how we would take the rapids and answered our questions. He was very calm. I had not experienced such rapids before and it was thrilling.

Tom Gill

Everything about the trip was outstanding, including the fact that we showed up on the wrong date (our bad!) and they were able to get two small boats on the river on short notice! Our guide, Molly, was informative, fun and above all, skilled and a great "team leader." We were a confident crew under her tutelage. Thanks for being a great part of our Wyoming vacation!

Tom Taylor

Had an incredible time from start to finish. Guides were awesome and fun. Went on the small raft and totally enjoyed the ride. Even played 80’s rock on the van trip. Highly recommend them.

Keith Terry

Great trip with a very experienced guide. The rafting was a lot of fun, the swimming was cold and the overall experience was unforgettable. We were able to see 4 bald eagles during our river trip and hit the biggest rapids in the River thanks to our guide's excellent instruction. Thanks Mad River for a wonderful outing!

Mike Ruf

Fantastic trip! My girlfriend was really nervous about it... the staff at Mad River put her at ease and she had.a great time 12 year old son and 14 year old daughter loved it too. There are many to choose from... Mad River was fantastic!

Chris West

Great time on our Mad River Rafting adventure! Mark was our guide. He is *experienced,* friendly, fun, and professional. Be prepared for COLD water. I'd opt for the waterproof jacket if we ever go again. We had dinner on the river, and I was not expecting gourmet, but the dinner was exceptional. Great job guys!

Vickie O

Loved my experience here

alan shino

KC is a great guide. Everyone on the small boat had a wonderful time.

Tyler Twiggs

Lots of fun on the river. Good was so much better than what I expected. Our guide Ben is a friend of the family and he did an excellent job.

Ben Wheelwright

We did the Mad River Small Boat trip down the Snake River and it was a blast! Aaron was our guide and did a fantastic job of being very knowledgeable about the geology of the area as well as telling us how the river flow changed over time due to mudslides, rock slides and other natural events. We saw bald eagles, a mountain goat, got wet and had tons of fun. Book a trip with these guys, you won't be disappointed.

Ross Elton

We had booked a trip for white water rafting in the medium boats on the Snake River and my family including my 9 and 11 year old children were looking forward to the trip. I had called at the time of booking (2 weeks prior) and was told that there was high water and if it stayed at high water, the 11 year old could go (10 year old cutoff age) on the smaller boat but the 9 year old would not be able to go. We were also told that to offset this, we could go to the largest boat for white water rafting that they had. We were told to go ahead and book the medium size boat and we could change it as we got closer. It was never stated that they could not go at all. At exactly 5:08 pm the night before the trip, a message was left on my phone stating that my children were underage for this trip. I called back and was told that with the high water, the age for rafting was now 12 years of age or older. I really appreciate their attention to safety and making sure that nothing untoward happened to my children. But, it would have been nice to have given us some advanced notice so we could have booked some other excursion. Did they not know that it was going to be high water 2-3 days before they called me? With no advanced notice and after talking with other tour companies (wildlife, etc) who were booked, we were unable to schedule anything for the next day. They also tried to push a scenic raft trip on us when they called to cancel which makes the timing of their call look like they were trying to make a buck since we could not do the white water rafting.

Glen Ring

excellent friendly people. Jessica was fantastic with her information and her knowledge. Trulia was especially helpful and helping me since I am partially disabled. What a great or highly recommend the scenic tour

Chris Smiley

JR was our guide and he was awesome! We saw 11 eagles and enjoyed the trip very much. Great sack lunch too.

Spencer Bertrand

Great place to book a guided ride down the snake river. Experienced guides who know the river very well and make it enjoyable. Prices are great, different options to go down the river. Very well organized and not a bad breakfast.

Natalie Erickson

My husband and I went on a river rafting trip Labor Day weekend for his birthday and it was amazing! I'd never gone river rafting before, so I was a little nervous. The tour guides were so nice and friendly. They explained everything we needed to know and joked with us constantly the whole time on the river. Based on the size of your group, you get paired up with other pairings or small groups for each raft. Obviously you get wet, but they provide gear for you to wear, including a lifejacket, that helps keep you a little drier. We were on the river for a couple hours and had an amazing time! Ryan was our guide and he was great at helping our raft work as a team and have a really fun time. There is a separate company that takes your picture on the biggest rapid, and then you can choose to purchase and download the picture(s) later. I'm so glad we went, I only wish we'd gone earlier in the summer so we could've gone a second time before the cold weather hit.

CJ Bee

Superb, great fun, excellent kit, Jimmy our guide was awesome, kids still talking about it days later, would be our first choice next time we are in Jackson. Thanks

Bryan Bernard

After more than 10 trips with Mad River, this last one might have been the best one yet. You guys never disappoint!!!

Eileen Barna

Awesome! We did the super small boat which made it a lot of fun and just our family on the boat. Plenty of exciting rapids!

Terry Parkin

We had a great adventure with Delaney (DJ), our guide, with Mad River today. Great scenery, wildlife, conversation, food and fun. We also bought the big one at Lunchcounter which threw Delaney and I out of the raft. Great fun and plenty of water to drink, even if it was the river water.


Excellent outfit. Picked us up and dropped us back at hotel. Our guide was fabulous!! We had a great time. Highly recommend.

Rhonda Davis

We had a wonderful time on our scenic raft trip. Our leader was Bobby, and he was very knowledgeable about the river, the mountains and the area. He engaged each of us personally and he was just a great young man. It was an easy and pleasant ride. We saw about 5 bald eagles and pelicans. Very nice.

Dannie DiIonno

Our tour guide Nate was awesome!! He was very knowledgeable and had a lot of insight about the river. Our group did the scenic river float and it was a great opportunity to take in the beautiful nature while getting to know each other and have some networking time. It's a GREAT addition to a conference!

Ken Holderied

We did a regular white water rafting trip with them. The staff was very friendly and we had a great time. JR was our guide and he was awesome and was very knowledgeable. I picked up some great one liners from him lol. We would highly recommend.

Michael Van Patten

We chose the smallest raft and got soaked! It was a blast. When water is splashing over your head it will find its way into every nook and cranny. Yes, even under the outer jacket and wet suit. It’s refreshing. If you are going white water rafting and come back dry, really, what’s the point? You might as well watch TV. We didn’t tip over and nobody fell out. However, I did swallow several large gulps of river water being up front and all. Yum. Just do it you big baby! :)

Katie Kruczynski

Super fun float trip with guide Ian. Our girls can't wait to go back next year when they'll both be old enough for whitewater! Yummy lunch was included. Saw lots of bald eagles and marmots. We chose Mad River because they allowed 4 year olds; turns out that's because their guides have higher levels of certifications that allow for younger participants.

Suzanne Hickman

I love Mad River! My family has a home in Jackson and we're regular visitors to the area. I've tried several other local rafting companies (Sands, Barker-Ewing, Lewis & Clark, etc), and while they are all good I always find myself going back to Mad River. Their whitewater trips are always safe and fun, and booking them is a breeze. I've done 5 whitewater trips with them in the last 4 years (guides were Nate, Adam, and William), and loved every single one of them. Their dinner trips are my favorite and every time I take a newbie rafting I book it for them and they love it. Their guides and office staff are wonderful. My only suggestion would be for them to get some shirts with their mascot Betty on them!

tao li

Nice trip experience

Ken Dixon

Recently whitewater rafted with my family (wife and 3 kids ages 8,9,12) on the Snake River. I have nothing but positive comments for our experience. Luke, our guide, did a great job educating us on the rafting techniques. He also kept the conversation going during the slower waters with information about the river and surrounding landscape. I would definitely recommend Mad River to all family and friends.

Dan Leiby

If you're travelling or staying in the area, Mad River is a must. It was a great experience the from the very beginning to the very end. Everyone we encountered with Mad River was friendly, personable and informative. Easily worth the price. Highly recommend!

Bobbie Barkley

In late August 2018,we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary with a late afternoon whitewater trip on the Snake coupled with a delicious meal at the half-way mark. Simply an awesome experience. Nate was a great guide and the meal from Chef Ty was first class. Mad River Boats was top notch to deal with and preparing us for the trip. Wonderful memories captured in the photographs! Best money we spent in Jackson.

Thomas Odenbaugh

Great guides and a blast for all ages. We had an awesome time. Nate was our guide and was fantastic.

Jeff Layne

WOW! Our small raft trip was the highlight of the vacation. My wife and twin 17 year olds are still talking about how fun it was. The twins and dad even got to catch a little swim during the middle of the trip in the chilly Snake River. Our guide was Molly and she was a complete joy to ride with. Highly recommend this adventure in Jackson Hole!

Nancy Freelove-Dillard

This was a nice trip but didn't realize it was mostly a bird watching trip. We were hoping to see animals on this 7:00am run. Absolutely enjoyed Jimmy, our guide. Extremely knowledgeable!

Susan Myers

Can we do this everyday?!?! Excellent- from booking through drop off. A wonderful experience! The staff and crew work well together. Way to bring a much anticipated- unforgettable - adventure! Our guide, Mark was experienced, patient and LOTS of FUN! Enjoyed the section of river that provided both fast and smooth water allowing Mark to share lots of tips about the wildlife along the way. Loved all of the pictures too- Bucket list adventure! ✔️

Diana Yamchenko

The best rafting company in Jackson. It was my first experience doing rafting, but they did great job. They explained everything what we have to do and how to move. Our guide, Mark, was good and had a lot of stories to tell, so it was really fun. I wish river would be more rough. They have 3 sizes of boats (6, 8 and 12 people), we choose 6 and I think it’s the best because you can participate in all process. Trip took about 3-3,5 hours, but time went so fast, we even didn’t realize. For locals they even have discounts for trips

Poppy Pay

What a wild ride!!! I was terrified beforehand, but our guide, Bryce, made me feel completely at ease. His instructions were great and he made sure we stayed safe while having fun (including our boys aged 14 and 10). A memory we’ll cherish forever! The Mad River set up is brilliant. It’s like a well oiled machine. Everybody is super friends and helpful, they even drove us to and from our campground. Thank you Max River, couldn’t have been better

Rob Shauger

Great crew that was knowledgeable and fun. Best in the area !!

Suzi Smart

Our first time rafting and I can't rave about it enough. Our guide was Maddy and she was fantastic. She made an effort to learn everyone's name and was great with the kiddo's on board. She was incredibly friendly, played games with the kids, shared her knowledge of the area's we were in and just made it such a fun and enjoyable experience. Be sure to ask for her!! Everyone was super professional and helpful.I wish my vacation was longer so we could have gone again.

Janice Caldwell

Great float trip. We are 69/71 and it was easy, fun trip. Served great sack lunch and sights were beautiful. Our guide did excellent job and shared so much about the area. We saw so many eagles and enjoyed the experience. Would recommend for anyone

Scott Leerssen

Our family went on the 8-person rafting trip and had a great time. Our guide knew the river well and how to make the most out of what the Snake River had to offer.

James N

Very well run outfit. I always have fun with them.

james ray

Too cool! Great service

Daniel Thomas

August 2019...We took the Whitewater Rafting trip on the Snake River. Our guide was Phil and he was great. The rafting trip was a blast! We had our 12 yr. old grandson with us and he had a blast. The bus driver to and from the river was also great. Very friendly staff. Our only complaint was the hike up the long hill to get back to the bus when it was over. We didn't have any idea that was part of this trip. I'm 70 yrs. old and in fairly good health and this just about did me in! I can see where someone with knee problems or breathing problems would not have been able to make it. It went on and on for quite a while. I think the guest should at least be told that that is how you get back to your bus at the end of the rafting trip. Otherwise, I would highly recommend Mad River Boat Trips. This was actually our second time to use them. The first was 10 yrs. ago for a Snake River Scenic float trip which was also amazing. Thank you!

Bart Cornwall

Fantastic Trip!! Everyone from the office staff to our guide was pleasant and entertaining. Staff was very helpful letting us know what to wear and expect on the trip. Bus driver was friendly and helpful. Our Guide was informative and entertaining.

alexandra turner

Such an amazing experience! Our guide was beyond helpful and hilarious! Definitely a memorable trip, and I wouldn't use any other place to venture down the Snake River with!

We had tons of fun. Molly is the best. I've been on many white water rafting trips along with river floats and Molly was the best guide (male included) I've ever had.. Molly guided us through the course like the pro she is. The fun and informative banter along the way just added to the experience. Thanks Molly. We wish you and your company continued success.

Joe Baroska

Best River rafting trip ever! the 4 and 5 year old loved it also and it was during their nap time and they took in every minute. everyone loved JR!!!

Wallace Dodds

We had a ton of fun here! It's a nice easy boat ride for young kids or those who are nervous or new at rafting. But at the same time it has just enough rapid to make it tons of fun! You can rent wet suits there on cold days as well so no need to worry about the weather. It is quite expensive though.

My family did the trail ride with the scenic float. Our experience was outstanding. The A-Ok Corral was wonderful to us first time horse riders. Our Mad River guide was excellent and was able to tell us a lot about the area and animals.

Sarah Tawil

Very careful and caring had a great trip

Erin Galvin

Was our first time white water rafting and it exceeded our exceptions! Gave us a complimentary upgrade to a smaller raft. Nate was the best raft guide ever!!!!! We laughed the whole time and had the most fun. We were sad when it was over. We will definitely be coming back to do this again!

Glennie Webster

I had an awesome time on this rafting trip. They were very professional with the 15-college kid group I was apart of! Ryan was very personable and made the trip very enjoyable. Thanks so much!

Bill Faulkenberry

Great fun. Ryan was smooth, fun, and very capable.

Amalia Light

I had a blast! i was worried they were going to cancel due to weather. It was cloudy and rainy. They had us wear wet suits and despite the weather I had a blast! Our guide was awesome! He was very knowledgeable about the river and about local favorites in the area. Definitely doing this again! Next time we are going in the front!

Rick Gams

The river was great, the experience was top notch. The guide might have had good river skills, but had terrible people skills! He talked badly to the customer and was trying to get one of the lead rowers replaced. We made it through safely, I guess he knew his job?

First, our Rafting Guide Hailey was great. She was kind, courteous, and polite. Our super-small boat had two first timers. It was pretty funny when Hailey was the only person to fall out. She was a good sport and carried on. Secondly, the only poor experience that we had on our trip (this is my 6th or 7th time to float with Mad River) was the bus driver. As you know, getting first timers prepared for a rafting trip can be time consuming. So, we took Mad Rivers advice and showed up 30 mins ahead of time. It did not help that the individuals working the wetsuit/booties station were not in much of a hurry to help us. Much to my surprise Mad River was not busy. After two of our folks got fitted for a wet suit and got everything back to the truck it was 9:25. I was waiting on the patio for the rest of our party to finish getting ready in the last few moments before 9:30. The older lady who drove the bus commanded that we be on the bus promptly. We were not late. I explained that we had two newbies and that they were having difficulty getting their wetsuits on, what to do with truck keys, valuables, and getting lathered up in sunscreen. She was unmoved by my response and reminded me again that everyone must be on the bus promptly. It made us all feel like cattle. This is the first time that I have felt that way at Mad River. I know when you put as many people down the river as Mad River does you need to be organized and on schedule. I like that. I appreciate that. I let her know that we had two more individuals and they were almost finished getting ready. At this moment one of the individuals from behind the counter commended her for treating us the way she did. It was rather sad. The child-like feeling that we felt was quickly washed away by the waves of the Snake River. We are adults. We are humans. We are paying customers.

David Hansen

Nate was an awesome guide! He took time for my kids and helped them enjoy the river. As for the adults he answered questions about things that I've noticed most guides would have given you one side of the story, but he would give you both sides. It was great

Michael Kaplan

Captain Ben clearly earned his Scrambled Eggs! We had young kids - so it wasn't the crazy whitewater you see in the movies.....but it was scenic, we saw some bald eagles, learned a lot about the snake river and all had a great experience. Highly recommend!

Mark Rus

Wow-what fun. Mark was our guide and he really made us feel safe. Truly a great experience!

VETA bates

Super patient with our large loco group! And the guides were incredibly fun and full of information. Felt safe and challenged and warm (rent the wetsuits... it's worth it!) and WONDERFUL! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

Ken Burton

Our family just returned from a trip to Jackson and our Mad River river trips were fantastic! We took both the scenic river trip for our younger kids and the white water trip for our older ones. The river was running very high but we felt extremely safe with our guide and the safety precautions taken by Mad River. I've run the river several times with Mad River and I have always felt taken care of. Thanks to Wooly, Bobby and Grant (and the rest of the behind the scenes staff) for making our trip a blast!

Tim Watts

Absolutely awesome day. Our guide Bobby was informative and helped us have a ton of fun. It's our 2nd adventure with Mad River and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful day on a beautiful river.

Patty Hill

I have lived in Jackson Hole for 38 years. We use Mad River Every time we go!

Karl Gruber

Our group did the standard 8-mile white water with Mark as our guide. Couldn't have been happier. The meeting place was clean and nice and the guy at the desk VERY patiently answered our many questions about the temperature of the water, what to expect, what we should wear, etc....which certainly he has heard a million times. They even had private dressing areas to change into and out of clothing. The bus trip was comfortable, and the life-vests clean, dry, and nicely organized. The instruction was clear. Our guide had the perfect blend of being friendly and personable without being "too much". He was there to give us a great ride down the river, and I appreciated the fact that he didn't try to give us some environmental speech, promote "Mad River" or the pictures being taken, or act "cool" or "tough". The whole experience was professional and very fun!

Dan Brady

Incredible experience! Staff was awesome, everything was efficient. Took 10 people ages 10 - 45, everyone had a riot. Our guide, Ryan, was a lot of fun!

Rex Winterton

Our group had a wonderful experience HOWEVER, we can't find any photos of our group coming down the river. I've writer a couple of times and they've all indicated that was the day that their photographers finished up taking photos for the season. How disappointing. We floated on Monday, the last week of the season. Beautiful weather, a little chilly, but who cares, they were cold anyway. They were on the 12:30pm raft ride. Whatever you can do to find our boat would sure be helpful. In fact, I'd recommend you for a big raise for next year. Have a great holiday. (Halloween)

Meredith McBride

Happy camper. It was a good time. Started of with friendly staff, answering questions at the front desk. Smooth ride with the bus driver and no one fell out of the boat because of a great guide. I would recommend Mad River to anyone.

Don McKenna

Awesome fun! Ian our guide was lots of fun and really nice. Glad we went with your company. Ride the bull!!!

Kathy beatty

We had an absolute blast! Our bus driver, Dorothy was so funny and informative! Mark was our guide and he was amazing! He was so great with the kids and made us all comfortable. We can't wait to do it again!

Dave Peoples

Wish I had done this many years earlier, and will definitely do it again with MadRiver

Wilbert Witteman

Dear Mad River Boat Trips, but especially Corey! We really enjoyed Friday morning 26 July 2019, see the photos. Our Captain Corey skillfully guided us through the water rapids. He also told us with great enthusiasm how to look at the water where you could tell from what kind of acceleration it would be. He said that the water was average at this time and was just about one meter higher just after the thaw due to the melt water. By the way, we thought this was tough and rough enough hahaha! We can and will heartily recommend you. Greetings Marianne and Wilbert Witteman (The Netherlands)

Lisa Highfill

Our guide was Fitz, he was very knowledgeable about the trip and other questions we had. We took the 1215 tour so they fed us a tasty sack lunch. We saw 4 moose and 3 bald eagles. It was a 3 hour float trip, very enjoyable and relaxing. I will do it again when I return. Great job guys!

roisin laskin

We did the Classic Mad River rafting on the Snake River. It was worth every penny. They have options for every type of adventurer. Since we had not done river rafting, we did the classic and it was perfect. Bridget was our boat captain and she was awesome. The classic is great for families as their are paddling / non-paddling options. MUST DO while in Jackson

Andrew Bonifante

Honestly one of the best times of my life. Nate was awesome and the trip was super legit. I wish I could do that once a week. Truly a life-changing week in Wyoming. Thanks again!

Shayne Garrett

Our family of 5 with children ages 15, 13 and 10 did a small boat standard 8-mile trip on July 6th and it was great. We just rented booties and a short wetsuit for our 10 year old. Water is a little chilly but we were fine. Saw a deer and lots of eagles and osprey.

Fred Durand

This was a great trip. Would highly recommend this group. Great instruction. Great guide. Shore lunch was incredible. Thank you for a trip of a lifetime.

Danica Claypoole

We had some issues with the waivers on the front end but had a blast on the rafting trip thanks to our amazing guide Nate!

Jenessa Graham

Great times with great friends down the Snake River. Went in late August, nice easy rapids. Ian was an awesome guide!

Rebecca Ervin

Molly was a great guide. So much fun!

Tom Moak

JR was a great guide. He was very knowledgeable and fun. Loved that Donny Baker's doppelganger was there to greet us with an American flag.

Chancy Parsons

Thanks for the amazing float Molly! Great guide, beautiful river, expect to get soaked!!

Sara Blackmer

What an amazing experience! Christian was our guide and he was excellent about keeping us in line (and in the boat) while sharing interesting facts about the river and pointing out wildlife. Mad River did a great job getting us prepared and keeping us informed. Overall just a phenomenal job!

Jessica L. Spicer Ibarguen

We had so much fun! Our guide, Mertah (sp?) was great and all the staff was super organized and nice. We felt well taken care of and safe with just enough fear to have an exciting time!

Kim Morse

We loved our whitewater river trip!! Ryan was a great guide, and lots of fun!

Alyssa Nielson

Loved our rafting trip!! The guide was cool and seemed to know what to do if someone fell out-- that's good right? We got wet, swam in "champagne" and went over some pretty sick rapids. Thanks Mad River for a fun weekend!

Barb Shean

Everything was great from the bus ride to the rafting point, our guide Molly, and returning to Jackson. All was handled in a professional, friendly, manner. I highly recommend Mad River. I thought Molly was exceptional.

Joshua Carlyle

We made reservations in February for a trip in early July. We received a reminder card and emails a few days before the trip. We arrived an hour before our rafting trip was supposed to leave only to be told that we had been bumped from our trip. The best excuse they could give was “waiver issues” that they said were completely their fault. They offered us a time 4 hours later in the day, which didn’t work, given our schedule. From our family’s experience, their 4.8 star rating is completely undeserved.

Sarah Hinds

Incredible experience White Water Rafting the Snake River with Captain Bobby with Mad River! Not only was Bobby extremely knowledgeable about rafting & the area but he was entertaining & provided many local spots to check out! We came as a group of 6 adults & all thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip! You cannot go wrong with Mad River & their team on the water.
