US$ 72.00
Overview
Admire views of the Grand Tetons on a 3-hour scenic float down the Snake River. A guide does all the paddling so you can just relax and watch for wildlife along the water. When booking, you have the option to upgrade to include lunch.
What to Expect
Your tour starts with checking in at the Mad River Boathouse where you can purchase refreshments, indoor bathrooms are available, visit our retail shop and explore the River's Runner Museum. Transportation is included and will drop you off at Wilson Bridge where you'll hop on your inflatable, self-bailing, 18-foot (5.5-meter) AIRE raft, which seats 16 passengers but this tour averages eight to 10 guests per boat. 

Then set off down the Snake River with your guide, who does all the paddling so you can simply relax and take in the views of the dramatic Teton mountain range. Float 13 miles (21 km) down the river, watching for wildlife and listening to your guide's narration about the history and geology of the region. The waters here are calm, so cameras and binoculars are welcome on the raft to help you spot osprey, beavers, bald eagles, cliff swallows, and trout; if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a mule deer, elk, or even a bear.

The time of your tour departure depends on the season, but mornings are the ideal time, as this is when the light fog lifts and sunlight casts a glow on the mountains. This is also the best time to spot wildlife.

Your tour ends with return to your departure point.

Thrilling Raft Adventure for First-Timers

Bucket list! We've always thought about doing whitewater rafting, but we're cautious and protective parents, so we waited until our sons were adults. They researched the companies in the area, and chose Mad River after reading reviews, so we acquiesced. We watched the "warning" videos...More

Fabulous trip!

A very relaxing and beautiful trip. We saw at least 15 Bald Eagles, 3-4 baby ones, and a huge nest! Lunch was delicious and filling. Katie, our guide, was knowledgeable and lots of fun. Will definitely do another trip with Mad River :)

Our raft guide was great...the rest of the experience was less than optimal.

While we were on the water, our raft guide (Sam), was awesome. He was entertaining, informational, and engaging...and clearly great at his job. The rest of the experience wasn't so good. There was no announcement of departure when the bus was loading to take us...More

Wonderful Trip, Great Guide!

Our family of 4 decided on the float since our little guy was only 5 and didn't meet the criteria for whitewater rafting (which to be honest had me nervous anyway as a first timer). But we really enjoyed our float down the river! We...More
