Scenic Floats with Teton Views in Jackson Hole
The magnificent Teton Range sets the stage for our 13-mile Jackson Hole float trip. This trip is guide-powered so guests can relax and enjoy views all around. This 13-mile stretch is home to an array of natural wonders unlike anywhere else on earth and the opportunity to view them all in one place is extremely rare. Guests are welcome to bring cameras or use our complimentary binoculars.
This trip features our full-sized AIRE inflatable, self-bailing, 18’3” raft. It can seat up to 10 people but we average 8 to 10 guests per boat. All positions in this raft are non-paddling positions. Our experienced and knowledgeable guides will navigate you through this pristine landscape, sharing the history, geology, and wildlife of the region. You may see beaver, cutthroat trout, cliff swallows, pelicans, osprey, and bald eagles on your Snake River float trip. A lucky few may even catch a glimpse of a mule deer, moose, elk, or even a grizzly or black bear.
