So your morning starts out with very attentive and knowledgeable rafting guides (did I mention humorous) and a beautiful float trip down the Snake River, which culminates in a WILD RICE PANCAKE BREAKFAST not to be rivaled (you can purchase the pancake mix from Barker Ewing while you're there and order more once you're home) The wildlife is abundant and...

Water Temperature 46, Air Temp 50, Weather: Light Rain. Spirits Sky High. Alex Bray was really nice, very knowledgeable about white water rafting, river conditions and local nature. Great personality. Very entertaining. Only lost one member of our family, but what the heck, it was the first raft of the new season. Really, Alex had provided the proper prior training... More

We enjoyed the scenic float but had been flyfishing the day before, if we had it to do all over again, we would probably skip the scenic float portion. The breakfast was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the warm coffee, the hot chocolate, the pancakes and sausage. The rafting portion of the trip was exciting – the water was frigid... More

My family and I had a great time whitewater rafting! For most of us, it was our first time whitewater, but we love kayaking and canoeing so we were comfortable. Our instructor was very funny and we had a lot of laughs. I am hoping to make it out again in a few years and be able to do this... More

Back in 2012, Barker Ewing Outfitters outfitted our trip on the Snake River. We started with a leisurely float trip, followed with an awesome breakfast of pancakes, sausage, etc. After breakfast we switched to whitewater rafting. My two kids, ages seven and nine at the time, did not paddle, but knelt on the floor of the raft. Our whole family... More

Went there for our anniversary and took the river trip. It was a memory that I will not soon forget. My wife and I were on a raft with another family and really enjoyed the adventure. The stop in the morning for the pancake breakfast after floating was really yummy. Just be prepared for the short walk up the hill... More

We took the morning float trip/breakfast/rapids excursion with Barker Ewing. It was a wonderful trip-peaceful float trip in the am followed by all you care to eat breakfast in the woods. The early afternoon was exciting rapids and beautiful weather. We saw bald eagles along the river. The scenery was beautiful along the river. We shared a raft with a... More

We love Whitewater rafting, but we thought we'd try an early morning float trip instead. Our goal was to see wildlife in their natural state. We mainly saw different birds. We really enjoyed our guide and other family on our float. It was beautiful and serene floating down the river on a beautiful morning taking in the picturesque scenery.

We were walking by the Barker-Ewing office in downtown Jackson Hole and decided to see if we could arrange a river raft trip the next day. The people couldn't have been nicer - and since we didn't have a rental car they offered to stop by the hotel and pick us up. The trip was terrific - a highlight of... More

This was one of our best experiences in JH. We had Tracy as a guide, just enough of conversation, information and quite at the right times. He turn the raft so that everyone had great views. Best place to see the Tetons. We would do it again.
