I was traveling with a group of over 55 travelers and when we were offered a raft ride on the Snake River in Jackson Hole, I pictured white water rafting. Not good for a person with back problems BUT Teton Expeditions offers a Scenic Float that is wonderful. It gives you a little gentle white water but mostly the trip is scenic and full of wild life. Wonderful views of Eagles, Osprey and White Pelicans. They can provide back support seats if you need them. The guide & oarman give you lots of history and local information and are great at pointing out wild life. A very tasty and fresh bagged lunch was included, which could be eaten during the ride of after. Teton Expeditions also offers great white water rafting! The staff is very couteous & helpful and it was wonderful way to see part of the Snake River.

Teton Expeditions is a well established professional Snake River float trip business with a personable staff and a never too busy attitude. Our guide was so knowledgable and personable: he made the entire trip truly entertaining and enjoyable. We saw all kinds of wild birds…eagles, osprey, and hawks in unparalleled natural beauty. The trip was the highlight of our Jackson trip!

We took the scenic float trip and it was very peaceful and just a lovely experience quietly floating down the snake river. We saw bald eagles and three of their nests, osprey, mule deer, pelican and other. Our guide was just great and very knowledgeable. He was able to answer our questions and had a great sense of humor. Lunch was included. Highly recommend this trip.

This scenic float along the snake river below the Tetons was very enjoyable and relaxing. The guide was excellent in that he made you feel special and helped everyone get in the raft. He was especially caring to two elderly women traveling by theirselves and making sure they were comfortable and assisting them get on and off the raft. Of course, they helped everyone as well. The conversation and knowledge of the river was very interesting as well. O! and did I forget to mention this also included a steak or chicken dinner to follow the float. The price was very reasonable for both and included binoculars. We did get to see a bald eagle and nest. Sylvia, Hershey

We decided to take this float trip on a scenic section of the Snake River. The weather was perfect for this trip, sunny and warm. The staff members were helpful and professional in discussing the safety briefing before the trip and answering questions about the area. We saw lots of water fowl, and fly fishermen along the way. We also saw 4 bald eagles fly around us.The equipment used was in good condition.

Snake River (蛇河) is the largest tributary of the Columbia River (哥倫比亞河). The 1,735 km (1,078 mi) long Snake River is the major river of the greater Pacific Northwest in the US. Snake River is the thirteenth longest river in the United States, and its watershed is the 10th largest among North American rivers. It covers approximately 279,719 km2 (108,000 mi2) and flows through Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada, Utah, Oregon and Washington.

Teton Expedition was established in 1963 and provides the scenic float trip on the Snake River. We did not choose the whitewater trip because we were travelling with elders. However, we had a wonderful time on the float trip. We attended the late afternoon 4:45 pm trip. From their office to the river site was a short 7.24 km (4.5 mi) drive. As soon as we arrived at Snake River riverbank near WY highway 22 (Teton Pass HWY), our handsome guides grouped us in 2 rafts and helped us put on lifejackets. We also received a pair of Bushnell binoculars to use on the raft. The 31 km (13 mi) Snake River float trip included a very small section of mild whitewater let us experience the challenges we might have if we took the whitewater trip. Along the river we saw Tetons and surrounding mountain ranges. Our knowledgeable guide always pointed out wild animals and geologies during the trip to us. We also saw people using paddle boards wandering around in the river. We were told we might be able to see bald eagles, ospreys, moose, foxes, elks and beavers, but we only spotted bald eagles and moose. The wonderful trip ended at a riverbank under the bridge of US-189. The Scenic Float trip included a delicious sandwich, potato chips, homemade cookies and a bottle water.

You are encouraged to bring a camera with you. A telescope zoom lens is recommended because you are far away from your target – animals. I had a wonderful time taking photos because I did not get sea sick. The bad news is most of the animal photos I took were blurry. Remember to set your camera to high shutter speed. Dressing in layers is a smart when on board the Scenic Float trip.

This was not cheap at $75/person, but I thought it was worth it. It was a hot July day and we took the 8:30 AM trip. A bus takes you from the location in town to the rafts. It last about 3+ hours, and "lunch" was included (a sandwich, chips, cookie, and water or soda as I recall - nothing extraordinary). However, we had a great guide who was excellent at spotting bald eagles in trees and knew the wild life as well as the houses of various celebrities along the way. A float trip is not, generally, action-oriented, but there were a few rapids to navigate. If you want excitement take the white water trip instead. There were some people in our group who were going to do that in the afternoon. A raft (it's an inflatable boat) holds 8 passengers (four rows of two people each). This was one of the highlights of our week in the Jackson area, and I would highly recommend it, but not for small children who might get restless in the confined quarters. Binoculars are provided. Guides are underpaid (in my opinion); ours was sleeping in his truck because housing is so expensive. I thought a $5 tip was in order. Weather can be variable; the day started cool but the mandatory life vest keeps you warm.

We have been to Jackson multiple times and the first activity we plan is the excursion with Teton Expeditions and we have also booked the white water trips that JHWW also offer. We have tried other outfitters and found Teton Expeditions to have the most entertaining and knowledgeable guides and informative office personnel. We really enjoy seeing wildlife in its natural environment and this is a perfect way to experience it....moose, mule deer, bald eagles, osprey, was just some of the wildlife. There is something for everyone....In fact, we are in the process of planning our next trip to Jackson and an excursion with Teton Expeditions!

First off I am not an adventurous person and actually cancelled this and then my husband talked me into going. Our guide was great ( Evan) and put me in the "chicken spot" where I could hang on for dear life:o)
Nice lunch on the river and the "scenic float" was great, we saw an Osprey dive for a fish and then an eagle trying to take the fish from the Osprey.

My trip with Teton Expeditions began by meeting at the 'boathouse' in Jackson where I was greeted by the owner's english mastiff and a very friendly front desk staff. After a short drive to the river, we were met by all the guides waiting with the rafts. I had requested Kyle as my guide after my great driving tour with him through Jackson Hole Wildlife Safaris. He made sure everyone was fitted in their lifejackets properly and given a pair of binoculars to use during the trip. Once we were all settled comfortably in the raft, we embarked and I soon forgot about the 'real world.' Our views of the mountains were outstanding, we saw too many bald eagles to count, and Kyle kept us entertained and informed the whole way. It was so peaceful and relaxing, the time went by too quickly. I would recommend a float trip with Teton Expeditions to anyone interested in spending a couple of relaxing hours on the water with a company who definitely knows what they're doing.
