There are several options--through Grand Teton Park or through South Park or whitewater further south on the Snake. There are lots of other options available. This is a LONG time rafting company in Jackson. The trips are run with highly trained guides who are knowledgeable about the area. The trips can be very educational and fun. I live in Jackson...

You have to raft the Snake while you are in the Jackson area. We have been rafting in Oregon, NC and this is the best. The staff in the office were helpful and friendly. The bus driver was very nice as well. Our guide was Andrea and she was amazing! She handled the instructions in a fun and helpful way.... More

I apologize I can not remember our guides name but we loved him. He was educated about the river, the area, the abilities. He had deep conversations with my husband. He was relaxed with all our teenagers. It was a great trip.

Took a 10-day vacation out west, first Yellowstone, then Tetons & Jackson Hole, we planned early an overnight rafting trip with the Barker Ewing Company. Tip...You will need to schedule this early. What a great way to end our vacation with our two children (18 & 21 at the time). The first day will consist more of a scenic route... More

My husband and I took an 8 person rafting trip with Barker-Ewing in August. It was a highlight of our trip, to be sure! My husband got to sit in the front, and he was all excited. As a smaller person, I was regulated to the back. Our guide was great, super funny and knowledgeable. I am blanking on his... More

We had David as our guide. He loves the area and loved telling about us about it. A boat ride is important on our vacations and this was one of the best.

My husband and I went on an 8 person whitewater rafting trip. It was my first time and I absolutely loved it! Our guide was great and was not only helpful/knowledgable about rafting but he also shared great information about the area. Our guide was Ben. I definitely recommend going!

Thanks for your review Smccann106! The Snake River is definitely a great river for beginners, fun for those of us that have rafted before too. I'm glad you had a memorable first experience, and I hope one day you'll return for your next adventure on the Snake. I'll pass along your kind words to Ben. Happy New Year! Heather Ewing More

We are a web based company in Idaho and we decided to spice up our lives with a little getaway from the office. So, we chose Barker Ewing. We are so glad we did! It was just the getaway that we needed. Travis was very relaxed and accommodating and while he did put safety first, he allowed us to have... More

Our family of six shared the raft with a family of five and it just could not have been better. Tristan was our guide, he was extremely professional and extremely knowledgeable. We had children in the raft ranging from two teen boys (ours) on down to two 8-year old little girls. Tristan knew the teen boys could help the adults... More

We had 2 families that took the scenic white water rafting with breakfast combo trip. Our kids were ages 8 to 16, and we were all in the same raft. The ride was awesome and the breakfast was fantastic. We were able to swim by the raft during the slow period and hit a few good white water spots that... More
