What You Can Expect

Snake River Scenic Float with Teton Views

Option for Lunch

Your tour starts with pickup at hotels in Teton Village or Jackson for transfer to Wilson Bridge Boat Ramp, where you'll hop on your inflatable, self-bailing, 18-foot (5.5-meter) AIRE raft, which seats 16 passengers but this tour averages eight to 10 guests per boat.

Then set off down the Snake River with your guide, who does all the paddling so you can simply relax and take in the views of the dramatic Teton mountain range. Float 13 miles (21 km) down the river, watching for wildlife and listening to your guide's narration about the history and geology of the region. The waters here are calm, so cameras and binoculars are welcome on the raft to help you spot osprey, beavers, bald eagles, cliff swallows, and trout; if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a mule deer, elk, or even a bear.

The time of your tour departure depends on the season, but mornings are the ideal time, as this is when the light fog lifts and sunlight casts a glow on the mountains. This is also the best time to spot wildlife.

Your tour ends with return to your departure point.

This was a great trip. Our guide was friendly, personable, very informative and knowledgeable about the
river, wildlife and surrounding area. I recommend this adventure for anyone that does not want to
take the more advanced rapids trip.
A great experience.

Tour guide/raft guide Bobby was very personable and informative. Scenery was spectacular. However, there was very little wildlife to view along the river.

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2017

The float was sort of as advertised. But the guide made it clear from the start that it was unlikely that we would see animals other than bird life and cows so the claim that we would see wildlife was sort of true but not what I had in mind. Also, the float was not as wild as I had imagined that is,the area was more developed than I had expected. IMHO the guide was a little over the line a couple of times in attempts to be entertaining. An example was as we passed a very expensive house on a hill, he said it was his and the Mexican girls that cleaned for him were not allowed to leave. He meant well but.......The craft became uncomfortable after the first hour and the lunch was okay but nothing Iwould have ordered at a deli. All in all the float was a little disappointing but then I have spent many years outdoors so it may have been exactly what others may have enjoyed. Lastly, while the guide was okay, I would have preferred someone with a different approach.

We were disappointed with this tour. Guide was excellent, but the scenery was not as advertised. River was running much too fast for enjoyable float trip. From the title of this trip Teton Views we expected beautiful snow capped mountain views but essentially saw none. and the views in the Grand Teton national park were still spectacular at this late June date The inflated river raft was crowded and uncomfortable for this big, moderately handicapped traveler.
