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.

My wife and I took the scenic float trip and enjoyed it immensely. Saw some wildlife (bald eagles, ospreys and lots of other birds) but the highlight is just being on the river. I even floated in the river with the raft for a few minutes. Guide (Kyle from NJ) was friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth the time and money.

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!
