Lewis & Clark River Expeditions in Jackson, Wyo., offers both scenic float trips and whitewater trips on the Snake River. Lewis & Clark has the smallest boats available on the Snake River, and, during midsummer, also offers riverside steak dinners. The company has been open since 1971.
Half-day whitewater trips run on the 8-mile, Class III stretch of the Snake River from West Table Creek to Sheep Gulch. The trips are fantastic for families with older children. The legendary Lunch Counter Rapids, along with Big Kahuna and other Class III rapids, will get everybody soaked.
Whitewater and scenic floats can be combined for an all-day excursion. Half-day scenic float trips run 13 miles south of Grand Teton National Park, with fantastic views of the Teton Range and great wildlife habitat. Look for great blue herons, eagles and moose as you float through an incredibly beautiful landscape. The float trip takes about two hours and the excursion runs about four hours total. The minimum age is 3. You also can sign up for the Riverside Picnic Trip, which includes lunch.
