Return Details

Returns to 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 available for rent. Wet suits are $10.00 to rent. Wet suit jackets are $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 and a towel!
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are highly recommended.
  • Gratuity not included.

Our guide Bobby was great and very personable! We were disappointed because we had scheduled a small boat and Viator put us on a classic boat with about 16 people.

Very fun! Our guide, Jimmy, was fun and knowledgeable. Would recommend. It was 70 degrees in Jackson, but river is very cold and you get wet and it’s windy down on the river; suggest the wet suits.

I went with my sister n law and my husband and we had a blast. The rapids were not so rough that I was scared I would fall out of the boat but rough enough to make it exciting. Our guide Jimmy,was terrific.

The trip was so much fun. We had a fabulous ride, got a chance to get soaked, to swim to paddle or not-paddle. Our guide was funny and clearly very very competent. We enjoyed being with our boat-mates. A highlight of our trip to Jackson.
