My wife and I rented a tandem kayak. We traveled down Henry's Fork and saw moose, pronghorn and eagles. Fantastic scenery and great water. Best money ever spent while traveling.

We had our own raft but Macks has everything you could ever want to float the river. Slow water to fast class 2... Nice folks too!

The four of us boarded a raft and proceeded 4 miles up river. The trip down took about 3 hours. We saw 7 moose on the way down the river.
