Awesome float trip. Guide Jim was a great float navigator and very knowledgeable about wildlife, Teton sites and excursions, and local history. Saw bald eagles and a lot of beaver activity. My family shared float with another couple and everyone had a good time.

This trip was totally worth it! Peter was our guide and was fun and full of great information. We saw bald eagles, a beautiful bull Elk, the biggest beavers ever and cool ducks as well. Learned so much about the flora and fauna! The weather was perfect- afternoon ride. Strongly recommend going with this company!

The scenery was beautiful, the guide (Travis) was excellent, the boat was comfortable and even though we only saw limited wildlife (several bald eagles), it was very much worth our time. Great photo ops for the Teton range, too!

Dear Anne B: The views of the Teton Range from the vantage point of the river are unique and pretty special. I'm happy to know that you enjoyed your float trip with Travis, but sorry that you didn't see more of the wild animals that frequent the river bottom area. They can be elusive at times! We appreciate your very nice review; many thanks!

This excursion was one of the highlights of our trip. We took the 8:00 trip and we’re amazed at the scenery we saw around every turn in the river. Pete was an excellent guide providing a mix of education and entertainment for the entire trip. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. We highly recommend Barker-Ewing for your next experience.

Our guide Travis was great. Knowledgeable, friendly and safe.We had a wonderful float trip down the Snake River. Loved the scenery, especially the views to the Grand Tetons of course. Eagles, coyotes and the beginning of fall foliage was lovely! We had a cool day, which was a treat, too. I would highly recommend this trip!

Dear bcasey1, I'm so glad that you were able to enjoy your float while the leaves were turning; it's my favorite time of the season, but always too short. We have now ended our season due to very low river levels. Travis will be very pleased to know that you enjoyed your trip with him. Thank you so much for your review!
