Classic Snake River Whitewater Rafting (16-person boat)

What to Expect

Our classic Snake River whitewater rafting trip will take you on a thrilling adventure that’s perfect for your entire group. The trip is 8 miles of beautiful scenery and whitewater thrills.

Our experienced and certified guides will help you learn how to paddle, hoot, and holler your way down rapids like The Big Kahuna and Lunch Counter. The boat can fit up to 16 riders and the minimum age requirement is 6 years old. In the summer, the minimum age for Snake River whitewater rafting trips may increase depending on water levels. In August, the raft will only be allowed to hold 12 people in order to account for the lower water flows.

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

You will get wet during your Snake River whitewater rafting trip. We recommend wearing clothes that will dry quickly and aren’t cotton so that you are not cold while you’re wet. Consider also wearing shoes that will stay on your feet and won’t bother you if they get wet. Cameras are not recommended unless they are waterproof.

Dry clothes and snacks can be left on the bus for your ride back to our office, and there will be changing rooms available at the end of the trip. Be sure to also wear sunscreen and drink plenty of water prior to your tip. Safety gear and equipment will be provided to you for your adventure!

​​Cancellation Policy

Teton Whitewater has a 48-hour cancellation policy. If you notify us of your intent to cancel your booked trip prior to 48 hours from your departure then we will offer you 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.
