Owner description: Barker-Ewing Scenic Float Trips, conducted entirely within the unspoiled natural environment of Grand Teton National Park, provide the best opportunities for viewing wildlife and the Teton Mountains in the Jackson Hole area. This protected section of the Snake River flows swiftly in places and otherwise meanders peacefully through many side channels, affording our guests an unique river experience. Our guides provide interpretation of the natural history of the park and its wildlife with a depth of experience to make every trip special.

“Great relaxing float trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

What a great way to experience some back country. Our group of 8 ranged from 6 to 50 and we all had a fantastic relaxing trip. The trip was very beautiful and our guide was experienced and very knowledgeable, not only about the river and its surroundings but of Wyoming, the national parks and Jackson itself. We shared some great stories and had a fantastic afternoon. This was a great experience.

“Nice Float”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

We were staying in Jackson for four days and our kids wanted to do a river activity. They really wanted to go whitewater rafting, but I did not, so we were hoping to appease them with a scenic float trip. The trip was beautiful and our guide, Jim was great. We did not see any animals, but the views were gorgeous and I felt very comfortable in the raft. Our kids had fun but were a little bored towards the end of the trip. The trip, instead of appeasing them, just made them want to do the whitewater trip more...which we ended up doing later on during our trip. Thanks to Jim for making me feel comfortable!

They were recommended to me by someone who lives in the area. We traveled to WY for my destination wedding, where we set up the float trip as a group activity. It was very easy to set up. The staff was great! The float trip was BEAUTIFUL. Easy to find the location for pick up, easy traveling, everyone of all ages was able to participate easily. The guide was AWESOME!!!!!!! I can't say enough about how entertaining and knowledgable the guide was. The person who recommended Barker-Ewing to me stated specifically that the guides are the reason Barker-Ewing is a must and they were right! Perfect float trip and a ton of fun for everyone!

“Magic on the Snake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

What a treat to float at sunset on a placid section of the Snake, through Teton Park. We took our grown kids and their kids- what a treat. Animals were out moving, and our guide Jim Stanford, did a marvelous job of navigating the challenging waters, spotting animals for the grands and keeping us all fascinated on the wonder of nature. Our son-in-law said ihe float was the highlight of his trip. A do not miss experience!

“Pricey yet scenic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Overall positive experience. I thought it was a bit pricey at 70 each. Meeting place at Moose was not clear. Our guide though, was excellent. Safe and scenic trip. Lots of photo ops.
