Adventures on the Snake River

One of the most fun and memorable ways to experience Grand Teton National Park is on a scenic float trip down the Snake River.

A scenic float trip begins with a van ride down to the put-in spot at Deadman's Bar. Once their, the guide and driver help the guests into their life jackets.

Once the raft is in the water the adventure begins! The next 90 minutes or so are spent enjoying a gentle float down the river, gazing at the incredible scenery and scouting for wildlife.

 Some of the most commonly spotted animals are beaver, moose, and bald eagle, but you might also see osprey, various species of duck, or even the illusive Jackson Hole local.  

Our knowledgeable guides can answer all your questions about the geology and history of Grand Teton National Park and the flora and fauna that dwell here and even provide tips on other fun things to do while you're in the area--all while expertly piloting the raft down the river as if they've been doing it for years (because they have!)

You can reserve your float trip today through the SML front desk by calling 307-543-2831. Trips depart daily from the main parking lot at 7am and 5pm.
