Paddle the whitewater rapids on the Snake River during this 3.5-hour small-boat adventure in Jackson. In a small group of eight paddlers and a guide, take on the rapids and plan to get wet. Multiple departure times available; this trip is suitable for those who can paddle and are in decent physical shape.
Make your way to the departure point, a couple of miles south of Jackson town, in time for your chosen tour time. Be sure to wear water-safe shoes that won’t fall off your feet. Get an orientation and paddling lesson along with the others in your boat; the raft has six paddling positions and two non-paddling positions
Launch from West Table Boat Ramp in the Snake River Canyon, traveling 8 miles (13 km) over the course of your trip toward Alpine, Wyoming. Rapids range from Class I to Class III and you will definitely get wet. Listen to your guide talk about the history and ecology of the river as you paddle through rapids such as the Bailing Straights, the Guaging Straights, Lunchcounter, and the Million Dollar Fishing Hole. Keep an eye out for local residents such as mule deer, elk, osprey, river otters, and bald eagles.
Please note: This trip is for those who are physically able to paddle; the raft and guide depend on your help to move the boat along. Please wear a bathing suit and quick-drying clothing on top.
