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.

“Beautiful Peaceful Float”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

My 11 year old grandson and I took a 6 PM float recently. The weather was beautiful and the float was extremely relaxing. Our guide was fantastic--very informed about the history of the area, the wildlife in the area, the Snake River, etc. We saw moose, bald eagles, and osprey. A great experience--highly recommend!

“One of the best things we did on our trip!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We took the 6pm float trip on the Snake River. Travis was our guide and he was awesome! He had the right mix of rafting skills and personality... He answered all our questions, even our dumb ones! And was very experienced and knowledgable about the area. We saw a lot of wildlife and could not believe the trip was over when it was. We would do this again in a minute! Thank you very much for a great vacation memory.

“Beautiful, calm river drift with excellent views”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

A wonderful oarer made sure he turned to float to make sure all 12 people on board were able to partake of the beautiful views. He also went out of his way to spot wildlife and bring the float closer in for better viewing. For small children and older people, an especially pleasant way to experience the countryside. Wonderful for adults of all ages, as well. Convenient pick up and drop off at the first visitor entrance inside the Teton park.

“A great trip and learned alot”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

We had about a 2hr. float trip and our guide Jim knew his stuff. We saw an Bull, bald eagles and osprey. Jim was good at pointing out where these animals were before we even saw them. There were only six in our group on the raft and that made for a very nice ride. The price is just right for a trip like this. We weren't white water rafting so we didn't have to worry about falling out of the raft. It was very scenic and a great way to tour the Grand Tetons.
