Cruise through the Snake River Range and the Gros Ventre Range in a comfortable, secure ride. The Tetons and Snake River views along the way are magnificent, so bring your camera—you may spot a moose wading in a back eddy or an osprey diving in the river beneath the snow-capped Tetons. The 13-Mile Scenic Float is a section that is west of the town of Jackson, nestled between the Grand Teton National Park and the Bridger Teton National Forest. Opportunities to spot an osprey diving in the river for a cutthroat trout are abound with the snow capped Tetons as your backdrop.

Fabulous trip down the river. Super professional staff— they contacted us twice before the trip regarding possible changes due to water levels. Alex and Sandy were great.

Ride the snake river with Josh!
, Aug 2020
A friendly, organized class act in Jackson Hole!! Our guide Josh was excellent, lots of experience and knowledge-could answer any questions about the area-geography, wildlife, had a great sense of humor and even managed the endless questions from the 5 year-old on the raft!! He always shared/warned re: areas that may be shallow, rough on the bottom, rougher, etc. I would recommend this to anyone!!!
