Reserve your space on Jackson Hole's most popular whitewater rafting trip!

There are non-paddling and paddling positions in this raft. Most people choose this option because they are first-time rafters or are traveling with small children. This trip features our standard size raft. This raft is an AIRE inflatable, self-bailing, 18’3” raft and can seat a maximum of 16 people per boat. Your experienced guide will share the history of the area as well as information about the incredible local flora and fauna. The Snake River Canyon is rich in geological history and your guide will point out some of the features that make this canyon unique. You may see river otters, osprey, and bald eagles on your trip. A lucky few might even catch a glimpse of a mountain goat, a mule deer, an elk, or even a grizzly or black bear.

Course of Trip: All whitewater trips launch from West Table Boat Ramp in the Snake River Canyon and wind their way south toward Alpine, WY, exiting the river at Sheep Gulch Boat Ramp. Guests travel 8 river miles from start to finish. There are about 8 sets of rapids, ranging from class I to III. Rapids include Station Creek, Double Draw, Blind Canyon, Big Kahuna, Lunchcounter, Ropes, Champagne, and Cottonwoods.
