Whitewater Paddleboarding is Crazy

Jackson Hole Wyoming Snake River Whitewater Paddleboarding

We may be insane. We decided to paddleboard 14 miles down the Snake River by Grand Teton National Park – the same river we went whitewater rafting on (you can read my post on that here). Granted, it was not the same stretch of river, but it was still pretty crazy. We went whitewater rafting on a stretch of class III rapids. From what we hear, the stretch we paddleboarded was 1+ and 2 rapids.

Our inflatable Bote Boards were clutch. And by clutch, I mean, they didn’t even flinch when they went over rocks, trees, and even bottomed out on rock islands. I rock the Breeze and Dad rides the Drift. They’re both amazing and highly recommended. If you’re in the Jacksonville, Florida area – be sure to check out Hagan Coastal Outfitters. They hooked us up last year when we were trying to decide between kayaks or paddleboards and whether or not we wanted hard shell or inflatable. After a demo day, we decided on the Bote inflatables and haven’t looked back!

 

Adventure Time! Whitewater Rafting in Jackson Hole

Jackson Hole Wyoming Whitewater Rafting Baker-Ewing

We heard one of the best places to go whitewater rafting was in the Snake River in Jackson Hole, Wyoming by Grand Teton National Park. I don’t have anything to compare it to since it was my first time whitewater rafting, but it was pretty awesome! It was mainly class III rapids, but I could personally go for something a little more intense.

After some research, we saw Barker-Ewing had been in business for over 50 years and had nearly flawless reviews online. We booked a trip and away we went! I must say, it was fantastic and we had a really awesome guide on our raft. His name was Billy (aka “Bus Talk Bill”) and he was knowledgeable about the area, telling us all sorts of facts as we were going down the river.

Here’s a few pics from our time on the water!
