Mad River Boat Trips

DETAILS

Guests cannot go wrong with Mad River's classic boats; this trip is wildly mild at all times. There are non-paddling and paddling positions in this raft, which is our standard-sized raft. Most people choose this option because they are first-time rafters or are traveling with small children. This raft is an AIRE inflatable, self-bailing, 18'3'' raft. It seats 16 people but we average 10 to 12 guests per boat. Mad River's experienced guides will share the history of the area as well as information about the incredible local flora and fauna.

The Snake River Canyon is rich in geological history and your guide will point out some of the features that make this canyon unique. You may see river otters, osprey and bald eagles on your trip. A lucky few might even catch a glimpse of a mountain goat, a mule deer, an elk or even a grizzly or black bear. People come from all over the world to experience our newly designated 'Wild and Scenic' river. The Snake River in Jackson Hole has been classified as a class I-III river, meaning that you can enjoy anything from a flat water scenic float in the north to exciting whitewater rapids in the Snake River Canyon to the south.

Classic boats are best suited for families with kiddos 6 to 9 years old, solo travelers, active seniors, first-timers, multi-generational travelers or large groups.
