Return Details

Original departure point
Your tour starts at the rafting office in Jackson, where you'll check in 30 minutes before your scheduled launch time. From here, you'll be transferred to West Table Boat Ramp on the Snake River to hop aboard your raft with your guide. 
When everyone is geared up and ready, set off down the river toward Alpine, Wyoming, traveling eight river miles in total. With your guide providing instructions, navigate about eight sets of rapids, ranging from Class I to Class III, including features such as the Big Kahuna rapids, Lunch Counter, the Million Dollar Fishing Hole, Gauging Straights, and Bailing Straights. 
During the calmer moments, listen to commentary from your guide about the area's history, wildlife, and vegetation. Take in views of the Grand Canyon of the Snake River, and keep your eyes open for animals like bald eagles, river otters, osprey, mule deer, elk, a mountain goat, or maybe even a bear, if you're really lucky.
Your rafting tour takes place on a standard-size inflatable, self-bailing, 18-foot (5.5-meter) AIRE raft, which seats 16 people but these tours average 10 to 12 guests per boat. Both paddling and non-paddling positions are available.
When your rafting adventure ends, you'll be returned to the tour office.
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Please wear shoes that can get wet that will not fall off your feet. An old pair of running shoes or water shoes would be your best option. You must wear footwear in the raft, so we do have booties available for rent if you do not have footwear. Sizes run 2 – 15 and can be rented upon arrival for $5.00 per pair.
  • Please wear synthetic clothing if possible and bring layers. Synthetics are best for the river because they dry faster than cotton. A bathing suit underneath shorts and a t-shirt is fine for a nice, warm, summer day.
  • Conditions can be variable; you may experience a cold day on the river. (Not to worry, it will still be a lot of fun. You just have to dress appropriately!)
  • We have wet suits, wet suit jackets, and fleece jackets available for rent. Wet suits are $10.00 to rent. Wet suit jackets and fleece jackets are each $5.00 to rent.
  • Splash gear is complimentary. On a cold day, you’ll want a bathing suit to wear under the wet suit.
  • Bring a change of dry clothes, a towel, and a sweatshirt on the bus with you. It will be waiting for you at the end of your trip.
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are highly recommended.
  • Trip pricing includes all taxes and fees.
  • Gratuity not included.

For a full refund, cancel at least 24 hours in advance of the start date of the experience.

This was our first white-water rafting experience! Our guide, Ryan, was wonderful. Lots fo experience and knowledgeable of the river! For this trip, there are times of calm and adventure! You will have times of just floating, but the guide keeps it interesting! The rapids are just enough for beginners!

This was an enjoyable trip down the river for scenery.
It should not be advertised under whitewater rafting as it was very mild with only 3 brief grade 3 rapids. I would not recommend it.

We booked a month ahead of time on viator. We were concerned that this might cause a mess, due to using a third party, rather than booking directly with the service provider. We had NO issues. Everything worked out perfectly. When we arrived, the reservation was correct. The raft trip was great. The water levels were quite high, and the guide concentrated on safety.
