A fun and relaxing trip with beautiful views of the Grand Tetons. I felt totally safe with the guide doing the rowing / steering and giving us pointers on things to see and do in Jackson. We’re really pleased we added this activity to our short time I. Jackson.

White water rafting was awesome! Our guide was knowledgeable and experienced. Even my 7 and 8 year old had a blast! I would recommend this to anyone in the Jackson Hole area!

This float trip was fantastic!! Our guide Roz made it even better. She was so fun and knowledgeable! The weather was stunning in late September. Highly recommend this trip!

Relaxing rafting trip down the Snake River while enjoythe beautiful sky and sighting bald eagle and a llama was a favorite part of our vacation. Highly recommend.

Fun trip. Although we saw no game animals or raptors, we had fun and enjoyed the views. They provided rain slicks when a thunderstorm hit us too.
