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.

Want to say thanks to Barker-Ewing and Mike Inman for a very wonderful evening of August 28. Mike was very knowledgable, wildlife included Moose, Beaver and Eagles. Rafts are very safe, and equipment appears new. If you want a great experience, look no further....thanks again

We did the sunset (5:30) cruise tonight and it was just incredible. Mike was our guide and his 15 years of experience showed in how knowledgeable he was about the history of the park, the Tetons, the wildlife and the constantly changing course of the river itself. He was the perfect guide, and his sharing of all his knowledge gave us a much better understanding of our environment and made the trip that much more fun. He was constantly shifting the boat around so that everyone had the opportunity to take great pictures and see things from the best perspective. Barker-Ewing also provides binoculars on board for guests to use, which allowed anyone who did not bring their own to see the birds or animals in greater detail.
We were able to see baby and adult bald eagles, beavers, osprey and several moose. We really appreciated Mike taking us down side channels so we had better chances to see the wildlife.
This is an experience I would highly recommend to everyone. Note you can get a $6.00 discount on the price if you buy your tickets on- line 2 days ahead. Alternatively, if you are a AAA or AARP member, you get a $5.00 discount whenever you purchase your ticket.

We took a 2 hour float trip with Grant as our guide. It was very relaxing and Grant was extremely knowledgable about the wildlife and the ecosystem of the area. We learned quite a bit while sitting back and soaking in the grandeur of the magnificent Teton mountains. They were also very accommodating when we mixed up our float trip time. Great people and gorgeous views!

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!

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.
