Our guide Drea was awesome - so kind and friendly. The trip was exciting but we never felt unsafe. If you want to get out of the boat and swim, I recommend having a wetsuit and booties. It's cold water even on a very hot day! Great experience!!

Yeehaw! What a ride. We decided to take a float down the snake river a little last minute, but Barker-Ewing was super accommodating. Check-in was really straightforward, the staff was friendly, organized and attentive. Our guide, Eric, was the best we've ever had. Knowledgable about the local wildlife, geography and river folklore, he made the journey entertaining and also safe.... More

We did the scenic float with breakfast followed by whitewater rafting. The float was nice, especially for the hung-over members of our bunch. The breakfast was very tasty! Fruit, grits, and yummy pancakes. The whitewater portion was crazy fun! But felt much too short. While the whole trip was advertised as 6 hours, the amount of time you're on the... More

My first time visiting Jackson Lake area from Los Angeles with my parents visiting from Hong Kong. Thanks to my friends living in Colorado, who had been hiring Michael Inman (our rafting guide working for Barker-Ewing)) since 12 years ago. We all had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful view of the Grand Teton, plus the unexpected "show" putting on... More

We took the Scenic and Whitewater Rafting tour with breakfast! We started out floating down the Snake River and Alex pointed out the bald eagles, osprey, and pelicans.No snakes to worry about! The name of the river came from the Native American sign for weaving! We were all excited to see moose come to the river to drink. We were... More

First time white water rafting. Loved it! Snake River is a beautiful area. Our group was fun & thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Ask for Dean. He was our "captain" & he was great. He helped make the trip fun & was informative about the outdoors & local attractions. I'm hooked & will go water rafting again!

Whitewater rafting with Barker Ewing was the clear highlight of our recent family vacation in Wyoming. We had 3 generations in our group and all had a great time. The entire staff at Barker Ewing was very courteous and professional, and Dean was an amazing guide as he and the rapids entertained us the entire trip. Great rafting, great scenery,... More

My wife and I hopped aboard with our float guide Nick! He kept it lively, entertaining and safe. Our entire boat had a great time. We got some swim time, game time and plenty soaked in the rapids. The company proved excellent with their friendly and courteous and very knowledgeable staff!
