The Snake River Canyon is rich in geological history and your guide will point out some of the features that make this canyon unique. You may see river otters, osprey, and bald eagles on your trip. A lucky few might even catch a glimpse of a mountain goat, a mule deer, an elk, or even a grizzly or black bear.

Overview of the Snake River:

People come from all over the world to experience our newly designated “Wild and Scenic” river. The Snake River in Jackson Hole has been classified as a class I-III river, meaning that you can enjoy anything from a flat water scenic float in the north to exciting whitewater rapids in the Snake River Canyon to the south.

Course of Trip:

All whitewater trips launch from West Table Boat Ramp in the Snake River Canyon and wind their way south toward Alpine, WY, exiting the river at Sheep Gulch Boat Ramp. Guests travel 8 river miles from start to finish. There are about 8 sets of rapids, ranging from Class I to III. Rapids include Station Creek, Double Draw, Blind Canyon, Big Kahuna, Lunchcounter, Ropes, Champagne, and Cottonwoods.

Best Suited For:

Super small boats are best suited for fit adults, honeymooners, bro-cations, or thrill-seekers. Mad River’s recommendation is that all participants should be physically fit, able to paddle, and ready for a challenge.
