Overview
If you're picturing a classic whitewater rafting trip in the Rocky Mountains, this 8 mile (13-km) journey down the Snake River in Wyoming is it. Traverse about eight sets of Class I, II, and III rapids as you make your way through Snake River Canyon, aka the Grand Canyon, with a rafting guide. When booking, select the rafting season and corresponding departure time you prefer.
What to Expect
Your tour starts at the rafting office in Jackson, where you'll check in 30 minutes before your scheduled launch time. From here, you'll be transferred to West Table Boat Ramp on the Snake River to hop aboard your raft with your guide. 
When everyone is geared up and ready, set off down the river toward Alpine, Wyoming, traveling eight river miles in total. With your guide providing instructions, navigate about eight sets of rapids, ranging from Class I to Class III, including features such as the Big Kahuna rapids, Lunch Counter, the Million Dollar Fishing Hole, Gauging Straights, and Bailing Straights. 
During the calmer moments, listen to commentary from your guide about the area's history, wildlife, and vegetation. Take in views of the Grand Canyon of the Snake River, and keep your eyes open for animals like bald eagles, river otters, osprey, mule deer, elk, a mountain goat, or maybe even a bear, if you're really lucky.
Your rafting tour takes place on a standard-size inflatable, self-bailing, 18-foot (5.5-meter) AIRE raft, which seats 16 people but these tours average 10 to 12 guests per boat. Both paddling and non-paddling positions are available.
When your rafting adventure ends, you'll be returned to the tour office.

My husband and I took a Whitewater rafting trip this past September with Mad River. We were in a raft with four other people and our guide Christian. A little chilly but it was a blast!! Highly recommend Mad River.

It depends on the river level is what we were told. There is a dam towards the top that is released sometimes which makes it flow quicker. It can be 45 minutes to 90 the slowest is what we were told I believe. Hopefully... More
