Owner description: Join us for a rafting adventure on the most scenic and historic stretches of the Snake River. Sit back and relax as our experienced guides deliver a fun and interpretive trip through the Old West where the memories of Teton lore and wildlife encounters will last a lifetime. Welcome to a bird watcher's paradise where Bald and Golden Eagles are easily spotted and wildlife is abundant. The serene, yet powerful Snake River winds timelessly through the history of Jackson Hole. Beneath the geologic grandeur of the Grand Teton and the glacier-carved canyons, this river ecosystem is home to herds of elk, mule deer, and moose. With the passing sounds of the Snake River's waters, the memories and wild tales of Native Americans, mountain men and pioneers of Jackson Hole can be captured. Sit back and relax as our experienced and highly trained guides deliver a fun and interpretive rafting experience through some of the most scenic and historic stretches of the Snake River.

“Expensive Trip”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 26, 2012

It was an expensive 80 minutes on the Snake River. It was fun and everyone got lots of sun. Overall, the guide of knowledgeable and put safety first.

Unfortunately, I felt that the value for money was not there.

“Great views, friendly and helpful guide, not much wildlife”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2011

Traveled down Snake River on a cool afternoon. We were hoping for some kind of wildlife but all we saw was a bald eagle. Guide was friendly, attentive, helpful, and told us lots about the area. I wish we had traveled farther up the Snake -- this lower area had a little more whitewater which was fun, but no wildlife, and the Ansel Adams-type views are farther up the river.

“Simply the BEST Fishing Guide Service in the Hole!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2011

We spent the day on the Snake with the most enlightend teacher in Jackson Hole. We received 5 star treatment and were educated in the finer points specific to this River (Snake) and local tips for presentation. We caught/released many fish and were truly pleased with the time we spend with Will Dornan's Snake River Angler. Richmond VA

“Good Float Trip”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2011

Although they messed up our reservation, they arranged a very nice float trip. It was raining, but the grand kids wanted to go in any case and were glad they did. We were the only raft on the river, and saw 4 bald eagles, some impressive moose, lots of pelicans, a marmot, an elk, and a heron. Guide was very pleasant. If you want a float trip, recommend you take one like this that starts in the park and is permitted.

“BEAUTIFUL MOUNTAIN SETTING, BUT BORING, saw no animals”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2011

The mountain setting in the area is spectacular, however the river ride is fairly boring. There wasn't much to see. The raft goes very slow. We didn't see any animals at all so it was a huge disappointment. The BBQ before the trip was excellent. I don't think any of the other river rafting trips in the area would be any better.
