Description

Our 17-foot self-bailing Classic Raft is built to handle the Snake River all season long. It carries 8-14 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). 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 335 N. Cache 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.

Please check in to our office at 335 N. Cache in Jackson 1/2 hour before your trip time. After checking in you will have access to restrooms and dressing rooms to prepare for your trip. Once your bus departs our office, it takes about 35 minutes to reach the "put-in" at West Table Creek Ramp on the Snake River. There are dressing rooms and pit toilets at the ramp. In most cases, the guides will already be at the ramp to meet you and help you get into your gear, including life jackets and free, optional splash jackets. After your ramp orientation, you will launch and begin your 8-mile trip on the river. These 8 miles can take anywhere from just under an hour at high water to two hours very late in the season, depending on flows. Once at the take-out you walk up to your bus which will be parked near the restrooms and dressing rooms. There, you can retrieve dry clothing and change before riding back to Jackson. The bus ride home takes about 45 minutes.
