Enjoy a classic whitewater-rafting adventure on the Snake River, where you'll travel 8 miles (13 km) on a 17-foot (5-meter) self-bailing raft, designed to handle the river rapids with eight to 14 passengers on board. With a guide providing instruction, you'll tackle Class II and III rapids such as Champagne, Big Kahuna, Lunch Counter, and Ropes during the journey from West Table to Sheep Gulch in Snake River Canyon. Calm stretches with chances for swimming allow you to relax between the action.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • No heart problems or other serious medical conditions
  • Not wheelchair accessible
  • We provide free splash jackets upon arrival at the launch for whitewater trips. The best clothes are ones that dry quickly. A bathing suit is usually the best way to start. Synthetic shorts or trunks and a light polyesteror other synthetic shirt are fine for warm days. Cool days require a bit more preparation. Always avoid heavy cotton clothing like jeans or sweat pants and sweatshirts. Cotton is extremely absorbent and will soak up all that river water, making you wet and cold. Synthetic clothing such as polar fleece, rash guards, exercise wear, thermal underwear, nylon jog pants, tights and polypro are your best choices when the weather is cooler and are all better choices than cotton. For maximum comfort on cooler days, a wetsuit may be the best choice. They’re available for rent at our office. Secure shoes are required for all trips. Wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet. Sneakers are fine and sandals are good on warmer days, but they must have a heel strap and stay on if you had to go for a swim. (no flip-flops or Crocs!) Neoprene booties are available for rent as well. We also recommend that you bring along some dry clothes to leave on the bus. They’ll be waiting for you there when you get off the river.

Such a fun crew and beautiful scenery. The time on the raft was the perfect amount being that the water was cold! The cold water added that much more to the experience!

It's great to know (and remind others) that you can have fun even when the water is COLD. It does lend it self to a true adventure experience. Thanks for rafting with us! Karen Youngblood Owner
lewis and clark rafting trip in snake river canyon, wyoming

My nephew and myself got an experience of a lifetime rafting in the canyon with our guide Jeff. Although my paddling skills aren't what they were 20 years ago I hd an awesome experience. Talking for myself I wish I could stayed in the raft a little longer it was an exhilerating float trip. As I said I fell out of the raft on the first rapids where we dropped into a huge hole all I remember was waves over the top of me that layed me back into the paddler behind me. The next thing I rember was about a foot or more of water above me with the sun shining through. I don' t know how I managed to hold onto the paddle but I remember reaching out to the raft which was over to the side of me and somehow two raft lengths away. Well, Jeff paddled back to pick me up and lift me back into the boat without the paddle that the ladie next to me in the raft took after pulling me back to the raft. After getting into the raft I realized the water was much warmer than the wind blowing in my face and over my body. What a great start for the trip but With all that excitement I knew that all my strength was gone from my body. Thus I lost my paddling position but the rest of the trip was exciting as the first rapids on the river. It has taken meawhile to collect my thoughts because our trip was back in the last week of July. Thanks for the memories and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and Christmas. I can only say that this trip on the snake river through thc canyon in the setting of Grand Tetons is a time I will remember the rest of my life. I hope you can read my writing. Many Thanks For Great Memories.
