Full description
Embark on an 8-mile rafting trip adventure down the Snake River - the perfect summer activity to do on your visit to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for all ages and experience levels. Discover the Class II and III whitewater rapids with incredible opportunities to swim and get wet. Start the tour by arriving a the boathouse, just 1-mile from Town Square in Jackson. Meet your experienced white water guides and get suited up in wetsuits if needed (available to hire for an additional cost). From there, take a 30-minute bus ride to West Table in the Snake River Canyon. Feel free to leave anything on the bus that you don't want to get wet. When you arrive at the launch site, get kitted out with paddles and board the boat. When booking, you can choose between the classic boat option for 8-10 people or the smaller boat option which requires you to paddle at every rapid. Then, begin navigating downstream along this particularly wide and deep stretch of river which boasts class II and III level rapids. As the paddling picks up the pace, experience rapids including Lunch Counter, 3-ordeal, Cottonwood, Big Kahuna, and many more. Be prepared to get wet during this adrenaline-filled adventure. Listen as your guide teaches you about the history of the area and about some of the rapids. Along the way, admire the spectacular canyon scenery and keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife including eagles, mountain goats, otters, osprey, and elk. Have the chance to take a quick swim and cool down. Finally, end the route at Sheep Gulch which is 8-miles south of your departure point. Finally, board the same bus which will return you back to the boathouse where the tour concludes.

My husband & I went with our daughters ages 11 & 14 and had an AWESOME time. There are nice calm parts & just enough rapids to keep it fun but not scary. All 4 of us agree this excursion was the highlight of our trip to Grand Teton & Yellowstone. Also, you are able to rent water shoes & wet suits which was great!

From the time we got on the bus with our bus driver Johnny to our raft guide Ian they emphasized safety. The conditions were a perfect mix of gently flowing to occasional rough waters. Perfect for our group that was a mix of teenagers, parents and grandparents There is a long walk back to the bus after rafting if you have someone who may have trouble with that they can shuttle you back up. Just ask if they don’t say anything

We had a wonderful adventure whitewater rafting with our guide Ian. He was great teaching our teen boys and answering all of their questions. Would definitely recommend this trip. The only complaint I have is that we did not know about the uphill hike at the end to get to the bus. We almost had a medical emergency with grandma, but she loved the rafting trip!!!
