You came to Jackson Hole, Grand Teton National Park, and Yellowstone National Park to be outside and experience nature, not to be stuck inside your hotel room or sightseeing from the car. Don’t let the weather keep you inside, because believe it or not, whitewater rafting can be even more fun in the rain!
You’re going to get wet anyways: Whitewater is actually the best activity you can do in the area when it’s raining, since you’re going to get wet anyways!
You won’t let mother nature get you down: The unpredictable weather adds a little spice and extra adventure to your outing. Nothing feels better than defying nature and being outside when the sun is hiding.
Our wetsuits will keep you warm: With wetsuits, wetsuit jackets, neoprene boots, and neoprene gloves, you will be dressed to get wet.
You will return to warm, dry belongings: There is plenty of room on our shuttle bus to bring everything you need to feel extra cozy after exiting the river, so know that you’ll return to dry towels, clothes and tasty treats to enjoy on the bus ride back to our office.
There are changing rooms when you get off the river: There are changing rooms at the end of the trip, so you’ll be out of your wetsuit and into dry clothing in no time.
Fun fact: The customers that return from rafting trips that had some sort of weather element to it are the ones that enjoy our trips the most! They are extra excited to have gone on the trip, gotten outside, and not be slowed down by the weather. And now they have an awesome story to tell!

"I would highly recommend this if you are on the fence or debating about it. Expect to get wet, they will also ask if you want to ride on the front of the raft (more of a chance to get wet and add some excitement). Couldn't recommend it enough!"
"Did pour rain like crazy the first two miles, but it was still very very fun. Zach did a great job as our guide and "riding the bull" was awesome."
"From the registration, through the check-in and the actual trip the staff was professional and knowledgeable. The day of our trip, we woke up to 45 degrees and the staff was there when we checked in to fit us into wetsuits. The two guides, one in our boat and one in the other were informative and friendly. And most important they kept safety as their first priority. Would definitely recommend Dave Hansen!"
"Had Bryce as our guide, Snake river was absolutely gorgeous, the 15$ suit rental is 100% worth it, between the rain and the rapids the wet suit was well worth it. Friendly staff and bus ride, all in all had a fantastic time."
