Overview
If you've always wanted to try whitewater rafting, this beginner-friendly Jackson adventure on the Snake River is a near-perfect way to get started. Put on your included splash jacket, rent a pair of booties, and speed down 8 miles (12.8 kilometers) of the river. Pass through the famous rapids, including Lunch Counter and Big Kahuna, hop out and swim during the calm stretches, and take in the mountain vistas.
Highlights
  • Paddle the rapids on a whitewater rafting tour down Wyoming's Snake River
  • Speed through Class II and III rapids in a raft with only 13 fellow riders
  • Beginners are welcome on this guided river adventure, for all skill levels
  • Don't worry about driving, with included pickup and drop-off from Jackson

  • WHAT TO WEAR
  • We provide a splash jacket to every customer free upon arrival at the launch site on our whitewater trips. The best clothes are ones that dry quickly. A bathing suit is usually the best way to start. Synthetic shorts or trunks and a light polyesteror other synthetic shirt are fine for warm days. Cool days require a bit more preparation. Always avoid heavy cotton clothing like jeans or sweat pants and sweatshirts. Cotton is extremely absorbent and will soak up all that river water, making you wet and cold. Synthetic clothing such as polar fleece, rash guards, exercise wear, thermal underwear, nylon jog pants, tights and polypro are your best choices when the weather is cooler and are all better choices than cotton. For maximum comfort on cooler days, a wetsuit may be the best choice. They’re available for rent at our office. Secure shoes are required for all trips. Wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet. Sneakers are fine and sandals are good on warmer days, but they must have a heel strap and stay on if you had to go for a swim. (no flip-flops or Crocs!) Neoprene booties are available for rent as well. We also recommend that you bring along some dry clothes to leave on the bus. They’ll be waiting for you there when you get off the river.
  • Operates in all weather conditions, please dress appropriately
  • This tour/activity will have a maximum of 42 travellers

This is a fantastic trip! It was a cold June morning and we were a bit worried about getting wet (and you WILL get wet!), but so glad we didn’t wimp out. The staff was awesome and outfitted us all with wet suits and fleece jackets, and we weren’t bothered by the weather at

I appreciated efforts to respect infection control efforts and ensure guest safety. Start to finish people were welcoming, polite and in good humor. Joe was our raft guide and he made sure we were safe and had a blast. I could not have asked for a better trip (okay maybe a tad

If you are going to Jackson Hole you have to go whitewater rafting down the Snake river. My wife and I went with our two kids 15 and 13. Our guide Orion was fantastic. He put everybody at ease and was very knowledgeable. The river had about 5 or 6 good rapids with breaks in
