On this relaxing rafting trip from Jackson Hole, drift down a scenic section of Wyoming’s wildlife-laden Snake River, where moose, deer, river otters and eagles can all be seen from your raft. Be sure to bring your camera to photograph any wildlife that appears on the banks, and also capture the stunning landscape extending out from the Tetons.

Snake River Wildlife Scenic Float: (3 hours) This rafting tour from Jackson Hole begins with a hotel pickup, where you’ll next travel for 25 miles (40 km) to the banks of Wyoming’s Snake River. You’ll board your comfortable, 10-person raft at the area around Pritchard Creek, before floating past bald eagle nesting areas and banks that house foraging wildlife. As your guide discusses the Teton’s geology, scan the landscape for moose and deer that could suddenly appear on the banks, and watch out for splashes of river otters that swim around in the shallows.

You’ll also see stunning rock formations, which silently rise from the alpine landscape as they have for thousands of years. This scenic Snake River wildlife float concludes before noon when you’re dropped in Jackson after a beautiful morning outdoors. 

Snake River Wildlife and Grand Teton Scenic Float: (3.5 hours)This tour begins when you’re picked up from your Jackson Hole hotel, where you’ll then drive to Wyoming’s Snake River for a 13-mile (21-km) journey downstream. This section of river in the Gros Ventre mountain range is surrounded by stunning terrain, as it’s sandwiched between Bridger Teton National Forest and Grand Teton National Park. 

As your guide discusses the area’s geology and fascinating cultural history, scan the riverbank for moose and deer that could suddenly appear on shore. Grab the binoculars provided by your guide to search the treetops for osprey, which could even make a dramatic appearance and dive in the river for food. 

Depending upon the time of your tour, you’ll enjoy a breakfast of delicious baked goods or a filling lunch by the river, before the 3.5-hour tour comes to an end with a ride to your Jackson hotel.

Beautiful scenery and relaxing float

Our oarsman and guide, Jack was excellent. He expertly navigated the river all while sharing information about the Tetons, the Snake river, wildlife and history. I would highly recommend this rafting trip to immerse yourself in the beauty of the area and to spot some wildlife along the river.
Peaceful Boat Ride
, Oct 2019
This is a serene, peaceful raft ride down the Snake River- no white water rafting on this trip. The purpose of this trip is to enjoy the views with no outside noise (ie. cars). You can spot Moose and Bald Eagles on this trip. A packed lunch that includes a sandwich, chips, cookies, and water is provided. Downfalls were that is is a long trip- two hours (in Autumn, told it's faster in summer when the water is higher). And you are sitting on a raft with no back to your seat so it can get uncomfortable after a while.
Nice day on the river

It was a really nice day on the river and Samantha (Sam) was a really excellent and knowledgeable guide. We saw numerous wildlife that she spotted and pointed out to us. She also tried very hard to make it a fun, personable adventure for her passengers.

Very friendly people, scenic river. We saw at least 10 bald eagles and several marmot but chances of seeing large animals is rare. The river is very swift but I didn’t get so much as a drop of water on me. Children would be bored.
Great narrated trip down the Snake River

Our guide Karen did a great job pointing out wildlife and telling us about them. She also gave us a lot of historic information about the area. She was wonderful!

My 12 year old grandson and myself had a beautiful and educational river raft ride with Cassie. She was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the area. We got to see 10 bald eagles -- amazing. Would recommend this trip to all ages.

Boring and not very scenic. Thought we were going to travel next to the Tetons but instead went south by the meadows. Wish I had investigated other trips more thoroughly. Was informed by another travelor that only the raft trips inside Teton national park are permitted to cruise the river inside the park.
