Friday Float with Feathered Friends

Summer 2018 - Fridays in July and August

Teton Raptor Center and Jackson Hole Vintage Adventures have partnered to create a truly unique raptor viewing experience … aptly named Friday Float with Feathered Friends. Enjoy a tranquil mid-day float on a guided vintage wooden boat tour down the Snake River as you discover raptors, other wildlife, and explore the natural world from the river. Bring your own picnic lunch and enjoy it at the cool and quiet Tipi Camp and the end of your float. The tour is followed by an hour-long up-close learning experience at Teton Raptor Center’s Raptor Encounters program.

This combo package is offered on Fridays in July and August and runs from 10:45am-3:00 pm. Participants will meet at 10:45 at Teton Raptor Center and the cost is only $79/adult and $69/child (12 and under) with a maximum of 12 participants each week. Reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance.
