  • 16 Mile Overnight Trip
    “We had a fantastic time going on the overnight rafting trip! It was a great group of people and Marlon and Palmer treated us very well. We loved sleeping in teepees and experiencing camp life. Our kids had a blast on the whitewater raft and wanted to go again. Definitely our favorite part of our trip to Wyoming.”

  • We Will Use Sands Again When We Return
    “Absolutely fabulous experience. We did the sixteen mile scenic float plus whitewater and lunch combo. Everything about the trip was outstanding. There were 7 in my party and the whitewater was a little scary for the 9 year old, but the rest of us wish we had this job so we could do this everyday. Our guide was Ben and he was superb.”

  • River Trip
    “We called last minute with a group of 11 people ranging in age from 7 - 73. They booked us immediately. Everyone at Sands was overly friendly and kind. The bus driver gave us a guided tour of the area on our way to the river (completely unexpected). Ben, our guide was over the top fun and friendly. Engaging our children, finding the best spots on the river for a safe but thrilling ride. My kids, wife and I will never forget this trip.”
