WHAT TO WEAR
We provide free splash jackets upon arrival at the launch for whitewater trips. The best clothes are ones that dry quickly. A bathing suit is usually the best way to start. Synthetic shorts or trunks and a light polyesteror other synthetic shirt are fine for warm days. Cool days require a bit more preparation. Always avoid heavy cotton clothing like jeans or sweat pants and sweatshirts. Cotton is extremely absorbent and will soak up all that river water, making you wet and cold. Synthetic clothing such as polar fleece, rash guards, exercise wear, thermal underwear, nylon jog pants, tights and polypro are your best choices when the weather is cooler and are all better choices than cotton. For maximum comfort on cooler days, a wetsuit may be the best choice. They’re available for rent at our office. Secure shoes are required for all trips. Wear shoes you don’t mind getting wet. Sneakers are fine and sandals are good on warmer days, but they must have a heel strap and stay on if you had to go for a swim. (no flip-flops or Crocs!) Neoprene booties are available for rent as well. We also recommend that you bring along some dry clothes to leave on the bus. They’ll be waiting for you there when you get off the river.

AMAZING TIME!
Jun. 2021 • Family
First time our family of four has ever white water rafted! Our Son is 12 and daughter is 7. All I can say is this was an amazing time. Our check in was easy, wet suits are a must this time of year as the water temp was 46 degrees. The kids and I opted for the rain jacket as well and I can say I am glad I did, but no one seemed to bothered by not wearing one. Our guide Luke did an amazing job of making us feel comfortable as well as safe during our trip. I, the mother was a bit apprehensive about taking the 7 year old but it wasnt a disappointment and she had a blast! We all agree it was so far the best time of our vacation!! I highly recommend Lewis and Clark Expeditions!!!!! Thank you all so much for the great adventure!!

SO much fun!!!
We booked this at the last minute and were so happy to get 4 spots on the raft!
It was in the 60's but the water is very cold so we got wetsuits, booties, and jackets. Definitely recommend getting it all.
Come 30min early. They have 2 small restrooms and a few changing tents outside, but if you come wearing athletic clothing or swimsuits you can just pull on the wetsuits outside over your clothes. They dont have lockers so only bring what you need.
After you get dressed you take a 30-40 minute bus ride to the river and you can leave anything on the bus.
Once you get there you get a life jacket and splash jacket, no helmets (not needed).
Our guide Joe was awesome and we had a great time rafting!!! Highly recommended and we will be back!

OUTSTANDING fun on the Snake River with JOE as our guide
Aug. 2020
This company is awesome. They were recommended to us by some friends. My husband and adult daughter had been rafting before, but I had not. It was SO fun. We went on 28AUG2020 at 1pm. Our guide was JOE and he was fun and a great leader and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend this. It was nice and sunny and the water was cool. We didn't swim, but others did. Everyone had on shorts/swimsuits. I was the lone dweeb with my rainjacket on over my swimsuit - I was worried about getting cold. THAT didn't happen. haha. Also, they have booties at the store. I wore chacos. My husband drove our rental car and met them at the landing which is a little drive from downtown Jackson (about 40 minutes). Didn't take cell phones or anything. They take great photos for purchase along the route. So fun. All of the other guides seemed really awesome too. Hope to visit again one day.

Fantastic family fun!
Aug. 2020 • Family
My husband, two daughters (ages 7 and 10), and I had a fantastic time! Initially, I was hesitant because my 7 year old is a peanut and I was worried she would fly out of the raft or be scared. We had absolutely no issues and felt very safe with our experienced, wonderful guide Luke. The scenery is gorgeous, the Snake River is breathtaking. This is such a fun experience, I can't recommend it enough!
We also did the scenic float, and that was very enjoyable as well.

Awesome time on the Snake River!
Jul. 2020
Our river raft adventure was fantastic, thanks to our river guide, Joe. He brought the river to life, helped us to identify wildlife and enjoy the natural beauty of the river. He also had enough jokes to keep our family of 10 entertained throughout. We were safe, but also able to enjoy the thrill of the rapids to their fullest extent.
