Moose and Bison and Bears, oh my!

Snake River Small Boats Whitewater and Sunset Wildlife Tour

Run the rapids in the Snake River Canyon on a mid-day whitewater in our small boats (8-man rafts) and then explore Grand Teton National Park on a guided wildlife tour.

Small Boats… Big Action is a big adventure trip on the Snake River. With 8 passengers in a small white water rafting boat, you will really feel the whitewater rapids. All participants should be able to paddle on this trip. Your guide will rely on the passengers to power the raft so everyone should be physically fit and ready for a challenge. On a small whitewater rafting boat, you can expect to get wet, no matter where you sit in the raft.

Roam the Antelope Flats in search of bison, elk, moose, bald eagles, coyotes, antelope, and more! Let you guide take you back in time as they share what early life in Jackson Hole may have been like. Stop for dinner on the deck at Signal Mountain Lodge while enjoying spectacular views of the Teton Mountain Range. Following dinner, head back to Jackson along the wooded Moose-Wilson road, home to the North American Moose and other wildlife.

Where is Mad River?

Mad River Boat Trips is located in the beautiful Jackson Hole Valley in northwestern Wyoming, just south of Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park.

The Snake River begins its journey in the rugged backcountry of Yellowstone National Park and gathers water as it heads south toward Jackson Hole through Grand Teton National Park. The river exits the south end of Jackson Hole through the winding Snake River Canyon, lined with trees and steep granite walls, small alpine meadows and abundant wildlife. It’s on this section of the Snake that you’ll experience some of the wildest whitewater in the Rocky Mountains.
