The “icing” on our family vacation! We took a private family scenic float trip dog included, down the beautiful Snake river, with the picturesque Teton mountains in the background. The professionalism of the company was second to none. From the onset of the booking process, to the extremely knowledgeable and informative guide (Tyler White) our family was being provided a First Class service! Even though our family has been to Wyoming almost every year since 1990 this will be one of our best memories ever made. Thank you Black Dog Radting Co.

We had a great afternoon on a private float with Tyler. We spent about 3 hours on the Snake River and we saw a variety of wildlife along the way. Tyler was great — clearly competent captaining the boat and pointed out wildlife and shared his knowledge of the area. Great afternoon — highly recommended.

Black Dog did a great job from start to finish. My wife and I did the afternoon scenic float trip in late September and nearly had the entire river to ourselves. Our guide did a fantastic job of keeping us informed and entertaining us all while spotting wildlife and keeping our raft heading in the right direction. While the moose were not cooperating (we didn't spot any) the six bald eagles were very impressive and we got to watch a beaver along with a significant amount of water fowl and aquatic life. We highly recommend these guys.

We thoroughly enjoyed our morning rafting trip with Nate as our guide. The scenery was beautiful and Nate did an outstanding job narrating and identifying wildlife, flowers, and picturesque views. Highly recommended!

This float company accommodated our family of 13 (ages 4-72) on a scenic trip down the Snake River. Eric was so enthusiastic, as well as knowledgeable about the area….but he also allowed us to appreciate the tranquility of our journey at times. When it started to rain, he was quick to provide ponchos. We were able to see a variety of birds/animals but our teenager was most impressed with seeing 17 bald eagles! Being picked up/returned to the Elk Country IInn was a bonus. It was well worth the money and we would highly recommend Black Dog Float Company!

We had a wonderful morning float with Black Dog. Our guide Nate was extremely knowledgable about local plants and wildlife, and was quick to answer any and all questions that we had. The company is taking all precautions to keep customers safe during the pandemic, making us feel at ease for the whole time. It was the highlight of our vacation, thank you Black Dog team!

We had a fantastic experience with Black Dog Raft Company! First, thank you for offering an experience that allowed us to bring our dog. We've been traveling around the country for 10 weeks, and this was the only rafting company we found that allowed it. We did a 2 hour evening float trip with Sandy. He was an excellent guide - kept our children entertained by having them spot eagles (24 total!), let them get out to swim when appropriate, etc - and also kept the adults entertained with lots of information about the local area. I highly recommend this experience to anyone in the Jackson Hole area, and especially families with kids and/or dogs!

We had an excellent time on our private float trip consisting of 6 adults with Black Dog Raft Company. Our guides, Tyler & Eric, picked us up on time. We had a short drive to our launch point, during which they made us feel welcomed and included. When we arrived to the launch point we were given instructions and life jackets that fit each of us great. It only took them 5 minutes to get the raft in the water, and then we were off! Tyler served as our river guide and was very knowledgeable about the River, the town (including the best restaurants), the mountains and the wildlife. The trip was calm in most spots, with 1 or 2 areas that some slightly rough water. But the whole time we felt comfortable that Tyler was in complete control. The time on the water was roughly 2 hours, after which we drove about 15 - 20 min back to town. All in all, we had a fantastic time and strongly recommend Black Dog, and Tyler, to everyone considering a float trip.

We had a great trip! We took a scenic float and Eric was our guide. He was very knowledgeable about the area and river. The customer service was outstanding with a call the day before the trip and pick up/drop off at our accommodations. Highly reccommend!

Excellent company for a scenic float trip! We traveled the Snake River today with our guide, Sandy. The conversation, the views, and the hospitality were all 5 stars. Our two sons were along for the trip (ages 6 & 2). Sandy made all of us feel comfortable. He did an excellent job navigating the waters - even amidst the evening shower we had the pleasure of encountering! Would highly recommend this group to anyone - especially people with small kids!
