Scenic Float with Lunch

Admire views of the Grand Tetons on a 3-hour scenic float down the Snake River. A guide does all the paddling so you can just relax and watch for wildlife along the water. When booking, you have the option to upgrade to include lunch.
What to Expect
Your tour starts with checking in at the Mad River Boathouse where you can purchase refreshments, indoor bathrooms are available, visit our retail shop and explore the River's Runner Museum. Transportation is included and will drop you off at Wilson Bridge where you'll hop on your inflatable, self-bailing, 18-foot (5.5-meter) AIRE raft, which seats 16 passengers but this tour averages eight to 10 guests per boat. 

Then set off down the Snake River with your guide, who does all the paddling so you can simply relax and take in the views of the dramatic Teton mountain range. Float 13 miles (21 km) down the river, watching for wildlife and listening to your guide's narration about the history and geology of the region. The waters here are calm, so cameras and binoculars are welcome on the raft to help you spot osprey, beavers, bald eagles, cliff swallows, and trout; if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a mule deer, elk, or even a bear.

The time of your tour departure depends on the season, but mornings are the ideal time, as this is when the light fog lifts and sunlight casts a glow on the mountains. This is also the best time to spot wildlife.

Your tour ends with return to your departure point.

A great experience!

We had a great float trip down the Snake River. Our guide, Christian, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We saw around 12 eagles including some nests. A beautiful way to spend the morning.

Stunning scenery

Our boatman was immensely skilled and guided us smoothly down the river which was very fast flowing. We saw pelicans and bald eagles amongst other birds. It was a very enjoyable trip.
