Our Whitewater Trips plunge through eight beautiful miles of the Snake River Canyon southwest of Jackson Hole. You’ll be guided on paddle rafts through legendary rapids like “Lunch Counter”, “Big Kahuna” and the bubbly waves of “Champagne.” It’s a Class II and III run that thrills adventure enthusiasts and families with novices alike. Choose our Classic Raft for fantastic family and group fun, or choose our Small Boats for added adventure. Our Small Boats are the wettest rafts on the Snake River, and provide added thrills and intimacy. Lewis & Clark offers both sizes of rafts on every departure (river conditions permitting), daily about every two hours. Private rafts are available. Trips take 3 to 4 hours round-trip from our office in town. Rafts launch at West Table and take out at Sheep Gulch in the Snake River Canyon, with 8 miles of Class II and III whitewater interspersed with calm stretches, even some opportunities to swim. Trips take 3 1/2 to 4 hours round-trip from our office at 180 Powderhorn Lane in Jackson.

Whitewater rafting with Lewis & Clark is the bonafide outdoor experience you came to Jackson Hole to have. Most of our customers are first-timers, so we have a great deal of experience with novice rafters. Most, but not all beginners choose our Classic Raft for their first REAL WHITEWATER experience. Groups up to 14 people (and in rare cases 16) choose this raft so they can all be in the same boat together. If you're even thinking just a little bit about whitewater rafting, call us and we can help guide you through your decision. Our guides are experienced, outdoor professionals. We have been guiding families with kids as young as 6, groups, thrill-seekers, grandparents, newlyweds, scouts, locals and more through the Snake River Canyon Whitewater since 1971.

Classic Whitewater Raft

Our 17-foot self-bailing Classic Raft is built to handle the Snake River all season long. It carries 8-12 paddlers through all the legendary Snake River Rapids, including Lunch Counter, Big Kahuna, Champagne, and Ropes. It’s a thrilling ride for all, with a typical minimum age of 6 (depending on conditions). Check other companies and you’ll find they put 14-16 guests in their Classic Rafts. Smaller groups = better rafting experience

Small Boat Whitewater Raft

If you’re looking to turn your Snake River experience up a notch, Lewis & Clark is your best choice. No other outfitter offers a raft more exciting than our 13-foot self-bailers. With 4-7 paddling positions, this truly small boat guarantees more thrills per mile than any other on the Snake. It’s not just an “8-man raft.” It’s Jackson Hole’s smallest guided boat, and the last true paddle raft left in the valley. (all other companies run their “8-man rafts” with rear-mount oar frames + paddle assist.) The minimum age is 8-10, depending on conditions. Small boats are not available during high water season. If you book a small boat during a time when we expect to have high water, we will ask you if you are willing to move to a larger raft if required. In this case, you would be refunded the difference. Your safety is the only reason for this policy.
