8-Mile Whitewater Trips
Our 8 mile “Classic” whitewater trip down the Snake River allows you to paddle but gives you the option to sit in the middle of the raft and hold on. Great for families that have young children or members that just want to “Hang on and enjoy the rapids.”
This is a class lll river (from l-Vl), with 8-10 sets of some real fun rapids. After every section of whitewater you go through there is a calm section following. This is a very wide and deep river! Great for jumping in for a quick swim! Some sections are up to 80 feet deep. This is a good thing as the shallower rivers can be very technical and rated in the upper V’s. This is a great family river! Also, a great river for all ages who want some big waves.
What to wear? You may wear shorts or bathing suits. We do have splash jackets on the river if you want to use them. For those of you who get cold and wish to rent wetsuits, that’s not a problem. We have plenty and ALL sizes! We have changing rooms at the boathouse. Sorry, no Flip Flops or bare feet. Teva’s, water shoes or tennis shoes will be fine. We do have some great wetsuit boots that will keep your feet warm for rent at the boathouse.
The water temperature varies. May and June you can expect it somewhere in the mid 40’s to 50’s. July and August mid 50’s to the mid 60’s and September and October back in the 50’s. One reason our season lasts as long as it does is because it is fed from a dam, the Jackson Lake Dam.
Do you want to have a little extra adventure? You can take a smaller boat for bigger splashes and added adventure for an extra $5 per person!
Hold on to your hats and glasses, this here is the wildest trip in Jackson Hole… This trip does require everyone to paddle unlike the “Classic” which does allow you to paddle but you can also trade off and take a rest.
