Overview

Enjoy a classic whitewater-rafting adventure on the Snake River, where you'll travel 8 miles (13 km) on a 17-foot (5-meter) self-bailing raft, designed to handle the river rapids with eight to 14 passengers on board. With a guide providing instruction, you'll tackle Class II and III rapids such as Champagne, Big Kahuna, Lunch Counter, and Ropes during the journey from West Table to Sheep Gulch in Snake River Canyon. Calm stretches with chances for swimming allow you to relax between the action.

  • Splash jacket is provided; neoprene booties are available to rent, if you wish
  • Round-trip transportation provided between Jackson and the launch point on the river

  • WHAT TO WEAR
  • We provide free splash jackets upon arrival at the launch for whitewater trips. The best clothes are ones that dry quickly. A bathing suit is usually the best way to start. Synthetic shorts or trunks and a light polyesteror other synthetic shirt are fine for warm days. Cool days require a bit more preparation. Always avoid heavy cotton clothing like jeans or sweat pants and sweatshirts. Cotton is extremely absorbent and will soak up all that river water, making you wet and cold. Synthetic clothing such as polar fleece, rash guards, exercise wear, thermal underwear, nylon jog pants, tights and polypro are your best choices when the weather is cooler and are all better choices than cotton. For maximum comfort on cooler days, a wetsuit may be the best choice. They’re available for rent at our office. Secure shoes are required for all trips. Wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet. Sneakers are fine and sandals are good on warmer days, but they must have a heel strap and stay on if you had to go for a swim. (no flip-flops or Crocs!) Neoprene booties are available for rent as well. We also recommend that you bring along some dry clothes to leave on the bus. They’ll be waiting for you there when you get off the river.

Joe, our guide, was very informative, funny, knowledgeable and gave us a great ride. Big Kahuna lived up to its name when we were completely submerged at the start of the wave only to be shot up into the air at the end. Very thrilling.

The dips/rapids of course. Exhilarating! Bonus, watching an osprey and an eagle mix it up above us. A great time all round.

This was a wonderful white water trip. Our family ranged from age 75 down to 10. We all had a fabulous time. Our guide, Luke, was fantastic. He made the experience wonderful for all of us

One of the best rafting trips!

Luke was the best boat guide we could’ve asked for. He was personable and funny and knew how to get everyone rowing at the right time. I have done whitewater rafting before but Luke truly made this experience the most memorable of all. He had lots of information handy and could point out wildlife along the banks of the river and be engaging with everyone. And let’s not forget Nancy who drove the bus to and from the downtown location. She was also very entertaining and helped pass the time on the bus ride. Highly recommended!

Lewis and Clark was an amazing experience. Lots of water and lots of fun. It was a little cold so glad we opted for the wet suits.

Neoprene makes a difference. Did you know Lewis & Clark was the first company in Jackson Hole to offer wetsuits? Glad you had an amazing experience. Thanks!

We had an amazing time! From the beginning to end everything ran smoothly…the check in, renting wetsuits, our bus ride and our amazing rafting trip. We were lucky enough to have Claire as our guide who quickly taught us everything we needed to know for a safe a fun adventure. If your looking to get soaked and have fun…this is it!

It was a rainy cold day we went anyway. Jacob was awesome. One disappointment was Lewis and Clark does did provide proper gear. They don't accommodate people over 180. They could not provide splash jackets at the sight other than medium and small no larges where available. There was one extra large, thank god or mike not have been able to raft, he also would not have got his money back. There were not splash jackets fir the rest of the party. We still had a good time. My suggestion for better customer care is to accommodate the plus size community. The acreage weight of all 4 of us is about 200Lb. Please update your clothing availability. Also the clothing in the store not be bought because you only carry up to xl. Thank for letting me give feedback.

Hi, thanks for your feedback. We SHOULD have plenty of splash gear for all. I'll check into that.

Was afraid the drought would diminish the whitewater, but it was excellent. Worth every penny, as my whole family had great fun!
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Kinda feels funny to say, but the drought has been good for the whitewater this August. The Idaho Potato Farmers own all of the water behind the Jackson Lake Dam, and they are bringing it all down. Good news for us (higher than usual August flows), bad news for the reservoir. Glad you had fun!

Such a fun crew and beautiful scenery. The time on the raft was the perfect amount being that the water was cold! The cold water added that much more to the experience!

It's great to know (and remind others) that you can have fun even when the water is COLD. It does lend it self to a true adventure experience. Thanks for rafting with us! Karen Youngblood Owner

lewis and clark rafting trip in snake river canyon, wyoming
rwsheffler
, Nov 2019
My nephew and myself got an experience of a lifetime rafting in the canyon with our guide Jeff. Although my paddling skills aren't what they were 20 years ago I hd an awesome experience. Talking for myself I wish I could stayed in the raft a little longer it was an exhilerating float trip. As I said I fell out of the raft on the first rapids where we dropped into a huge hole all I remember was waves over the top of me that layed me back into the paddler behind me. The next thing I rember was about a foot or more of water above me with the sun shining through. I don' t know how I managed to hold onto the paddle but I remember reaching out to the raft which was over to the side of me and somehow two raft lengths away. Well, Jeff paddled back to pick me up and lift me back into the boat without the paddle that the ladie next to me in the raft took after pulling me back to the raft. After getting into the raft I realized the water was much warmer than the wind blowing in my face and over my body. What a great start for the trip but With all that excitement I knew that all my strength was gone from my body. Thus I lost my paddling position but the rest of the trip was just.as exciting as the first rapids on the river. It has taken meawhile to collect my thoughts because our trip was back in the last week of July. Thanks for the memories and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving and Christmas. I can only say that this trip on the snake river through thc canyon in the setting of Grand Tetons is a time I will remember the rest of my life. I hope you can read my writing. Many Thanks For Great Memories.
