Went down Snake river on a rubber raft with a guy using ores on it. Good trip water a little more swift but they had no control over that. It is due to snow melt and run off.

The river was high so it went faster and we actually had class I and Class II rapids, so that was great. But because of the high water we didn't see as much wildlife. This is the third time I used Baker-Ewing and they never...More

We only have 1 day in grand teton national park, and we were thinking of either doing a hike (e.g. Jenny Lake) followed by white water rafting, or a float/rafting combo. Are there any similarities between the float and the rafting? Would we be missing out if we didn't do anything else in grand teton? Thank you

Hi Louise! You definitely need a day in Grand Teton National Park! The Whitewater rafting is south of the Town of Jackson and would require driving 20 minutes from the Moose entrance to GTNP to our trip office in town. We'll... More
