The float down the river was peaceful and beautiful; we saw lots of birds, including over 10 bald eagles and several nests. The guides, Alex and Kaia, were kind, personable, and knowledgeable. The trips to and from the river were well-organized and professional. It was a great start to our time in Jackson Hole and the Tetons!

This is a must-do if you’re visiting this area. Our guide, Corey, was great. He told us all about the area, pointed out bald eagles and other wildlife. He entertained us with his stories of mountain climbing, cave exploring, and other adventures available in the area. We took the float trip and it was perfect for old and young.

Although the weather did not cooperate, it was cold and rainy and we were not able to see spectacular scenery, we thoroughly enjoyed our scenic float trip. Our guide was personally engaging, very knowledgeable, quick to point out eagles and other sights and he obviously enjoyed his role as a guide.
