Scenic Snake River Float Trip from Wilson to Jackson Hole

What to Expect

Enjoy the scenery of the Teton mountain range and the beauty of Jackson Hole on our 13-mile Snake River float trip. Wildlife such as bald eagles, Rocky Mountain elk, moose, mule deer, otters, beavers, and many more have all been seen during our scenic float trips.

Once you meet us 15 minutes before your departure time to check-in, we will transport you to our drop-in point which is 10 miles west of Jackson Hole in a town called Wilson. Once we arrive, we’ll begin our 13-mile Snake River float trip. During your trip, our guides will tell you about the natural history and geography of the Teton Range, which you’ll be able to see an amazing view of during your float.

Once our trained and certified guides take you to the end of the float trip, we will drive you back to the main office where you checked in at. The minimum age for this trip is 4 years old, and all safety gear and equipment will be provided for you.

To find the perfect trip for you and your group, be sure to take a look at all of our Snake River rafting trips.

Recommended Gear

Your Snake River float trip will be mostly dry, although there might be a few minor splashes throughout. Feel free to bring your camera, some water, and some snacks to enjoy the scenery along the way. All necessary gear will be provided for you, included life jackets. If it happens to rain during your trip, we also have ponchos available for you to use.

​​Cancellation Policy

Teton Whitewater has a 48-hour cancellation policy. If you notify us of your intent to cancel the booked trip outside 48 hours of departure, then we offer a 100% refund. For groups of 10 or more, we have a 1-week cancellation policy. Anyone that cancels before these times will receive a 100% refund.

We are limited by the National Forest Service as to how many people we can bring down the Snake River on one trip. If you book a spot on a trip, we are no longer able to sell your seat, therefore, if you cancel within the time of our cancellation policy, we can only refund the money if we can find people to fill the spots you have vacated.

Frequently Asked Questions

HOW EARLY SHOULD I BOOK MY TRIP?

We encourage you to make your booking as soon as possible just to make sure you secure your spot!

The larger your group or family, the earlier you should book. For groups less than 10 people you can call and cancel and get a full refund as long as you do so at least 48 hours (two days) before your trip. For groups over 10 people, the same rule applies except you must call and cancel at least one week before your trip.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

For Scenic trips you shouldn’t get wet and normal casual clothes are encouraged, it’s always a good idea to bring a light jacket or sweater as well. Your feet might get wet so please keep that in mind and be sure to choose appropriate footwear. Scenic trips include complimentary water as well as blankets and ponchos in case of inclement weather. Feel free to bring some snacks as well

For Whitewater trips, swimsuits and sturdy footwear are encouraged for this trip, you might even want to consider renting wetsuits or booties from our office to help you stay warm!

WHAT CLASS OF RAPIDS ARE ON THE SNAKE RIVER?

On the official Class I – Class V rapids scale, the Snake River is classified as a Class II. This means our stretch of river is an intermediate rating and is great for all rafters!

Be aware that high or low water flows can change river conditions and the experience you might have. Stay informed, and plan your trip accordingly. Our safety record is top-notch, and we focus on mitigating risk, and always put safety first.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHITEWATER TRIPS AND SCENIC TRIPS?

Our scenic trip is a 13 mile Wilson Scenic float. It’s a beautiful stretch of the Snake River with typically 8 to 10 people on one scenic boat. The Wilson float is great for seeing bald eagles, moose, and other wildlife and scenery!

Our 8-mile whitewater rafting trip includes splashy rapids like Big Kahuna, Lunch Counter, Ropes, and Champagne, so you are sure to get tons of splashes and have a lot of fun!

Both trips include an experienced and trained guide, ask them whatever you want! Both scenic and whitewater trips are amazing and by far the most fun you’ll have in Jackson Hole!

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

For groups less than 10 people cancellation is allowed up to 48 hours before your trip day and time, for groups of 10 or more people cancellation is allowed up to one week before your trip day and time. Anything canceled after these times will not be eligible for a refund.
