not-to-be-missed“I’ve gotta say this was the best activity we had in Jackson Hole. We took the mid day trip as we were staying in Driggs ID & we had some late risers. As it turned out this was a great choice. Both Jeff & Mandy were right on top of everything. They hauled us to the drop off point & gave local pointers on the way. Jeff took over on the raft & guided us down stream. He told us about everything we were seeing & pointed out things that we did not see. Eagles, Pelicans, Osprey, Ducks, & even a Moose. Grand daughter even got to pilot the raft a bit. Stopped for a provided lunch, which was far above what I expected, on a little spit of land with Eagles flying above. All in all we would not have missed this for the world. If I get to go back to Jackson Hole you know what I’ll be doing!”

“We went on an 8am scenic float trip with Black Dog Raft Company, and I was extremely impressed from the beginning to end of my experience. I actually chose Black Dog because they were the cheapest – before I had seen their many excellent reviews on TripAdvisor. The day of our float it actually rained quite a bit, yet I still had an amazing, 5-star time, for the following reasons:

Mandie was extremely friendly and helpful on the phone, telling me exactly what to bring on the trip. Jeff and Clark picked us up at exactly 7:35 am as promised. Clark, our guide down the river, was totally awesome – he helped us spot 18 bald eagles, pointed out various other birds/ducks and beaver dams, and kept us entertained with great stories about local history and legend the entire ride. Jeff was ready and waiting for us when we arrived, and had warmed up our van (it rained a bit that morning). Everyone was so cheerful and pleasant; the customer service was what made our experience unforgettable.

Other stuff – it was raining but they were well-prepared with ponchos and blankets (fleece on one side, water resistant on the other). They had fresh croissants (as in, baked fresh that morning from a local bakery), juice and water on the raft. We were 6 total + Clark so it was a very personalized experience.

Tip – bring binoculars if you like birds.”

fantastic-float-down-the-snake-river“Our party of four (two parents and two kids, 7 & 5) floated with Black Dog down the Snake last week and it was great! We floated during the lunch time trip and everything went off without any issues. Mandy coordinated with us the pick up location and Jeff was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about the ways and means of the river and excellent at pointing out wildlife along the way. We had lunch on the river bank and the sandwiches were well prepared from a local deli. What I liked most is that there times that we just floated, in silence, with only the river, the wind and birds providing a perfect relaxing experience in front of the majestic Teton Range. Our boys loved sitting up front and got to experience some small rapids which kept things lively. This was a great trip and I highly recommend Black Dog.”
