Had a wonderful overnight raft trip with our guide, JP! Took our 3 boys (13, 11 and 9) - great scenery on the afternoon float then Al cooked us a great steak dinner followed by s'mores around the campfire. The boys loved the tent sleeping and all the stars that they could see in the sky! The next morning Al... More

We booked an afternoon trip on an 8-person raft. Our guide, Nick, was knowledgeable, pleasant and fun. The river was beautiful and was mostly gentle, with several rapids along the way - we certainly got soaked and were glad that the day had warmed up in the afternoon! We would go with Barker-Ewing again when back in Jackson.

I had my first Whitewater experience with Barker-Ewing over 20 years ago with my parents, and decided to go back with my children during our visit to Jackson. The experience was fantastic - the trip itself is amazing, plus we were lucky enough to see some incredible wildlife along the way. Our guide was great - couldn't have asked for... More

Took 5 kids and 3 adults down the river. Great time. Trip was well organized and guide gauged our group perfectly. Great way to see the canyon and entertain 7-12 year olds.

Barker-Ewing is the leading whitewater rafting company in the Jackson Hole area. Given that it is backed by 53 years of experience with a very high safety rating, our family chose this outfitter out of the many available for our white water experience. Its name isn't catchy or cute, but the experience its staff provided was exceptional. The office staff... More

Natty was a great guide. Great with our kids and seemed to sense when and where to be his laid back funny and when to buckle down for safety and sensibility. We had someone go over the side, but thanks to preparedness and her great character it proved just another fun thing to reminisce about.

We did a half day whitewater rafting trip with Natty. It was our first time and it was great! Natty made the trip extremely fun for all! He has a fantastic personality, knows the waters, and has a wealth of knowledge about the wildlife and environment. We would highly recommend Barker-Ewing Whitewater and Natty to everyone!
