Additional Info
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Please wear shoes that can get wet that will not fall off your feet. An old pair of running shoes or water shoes would be your best option. You must wear footwear in the raft, so we do have booties available for rent if you do not have footwear. Sizes run 2 – 15 and can be rented upon arrival for $5.00 per pair.
  • Please wear synthetic clothing if possible and bring layers. Synthetics are best for the river because they dry faster than cotton. A bathing suit underneath shorts and a t-shirt is fine for a nice, warm, summer day.
  • Conditions can be variable; you may experience a cold day on the river. (Not to worry, it will still be a lot of fun. You just have to dress appropriately!)
  • We have wet suits, wet suit jackets, and fleece jackets available for rent. Wet suits are $10.00 to rent. Wet suit jackets and fleece jackets are each $5.00 to rent.
  • Splash gear is complimentary. On a cold day, you’ll want a bathing suit to wear under the wet suit.
  • Bring a change of dry clothes and a towel.
  • Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are highly recommended.
  • Trip pricing includes all taxes and fees.
  • Gratuities are not included, it is customary to tip your guide and bus driver.

First the good: The guide Molly was awesome, skilled, knowledgeable and friendly. The ride was smooth and scenic. Not so good: We were off to a bad start when we left an hour late. The excuse was unclear and sounded lame - like someone screwed up and they were trying to cover

Took the 4:30 afternoon float tour in the hopes of seeing more wild life and were not disappointed! I had my doubts about a river trip with out white water but I was pleasantly surprised. Our guide, Brian, was very knowledgeable and had an excellent eye for spotting wildlife.

My husband and I took the scenic float trip on Sept. 6, 2019. Despite the cloudy skies and threat of rain, we had a fantastic float! It was the first day of our trip to Tetons and Yellowstone, and this was a great beginning! Saw at least a dozen bald eagles, and several osprey.
