Frequently Asked Questions About Barker-Ewing Float Trips
How long do the rafting trips take?
With an approximate round-trip time of 2.5 – 3 hours, these trips are the ideal length, long enough for a full river adventure, yet short enough to allow consideration of other Jackson Hole activities the same day.
What should we bring?
Casual clothing such as slacks or jeans and comfortable soft-soled shoes are most suitable for these trips. A hat with visor, water bottle and sunscreen are recommended. For the cooler temperatures of the early morning or an evening float, we suggest you bring a jacket or thick sweater. Cameras, camcorders and binoculars may be brought at your own risk.
What do you provide?
We provide transportation from Moose Village to the launch site (you’ll end the float trip about a hundred yards from your car), rain ponchos in the event of sudden showers and life preservers, which must be worn at all times when in the rafts.
May we bring young children?
The minimum age for children on our scenic trips is six years with a minimum weight of 50 pounds.
What if the weather is bad?
In the event of questionable weather, please call us about an hour before your scheduled departure. Weather conditions may vary throughout the valley, and it is often difficult to predict prevailing conditions until very close to the pre-arranged meeting time. We reserve the right to cancel trips due to inclement weather.
What times of day do you offer float trips?
Float Trip times vary according to hours of available daylight and river water levels. Please call for current float times. 1.800.365.1800 or 307.733.1800.
How rough are these river trips?
This stretch of the Snake River runs swiftly in places, and slowly in others, and is generally suitable for people of all ages and abilities.
