Important tips to improve your tube trip: The river level varies and you will be advised before your trip of the river level. The river level is a measurement taken at one specific spot, it does not reflect the deepest point of the river. This level is used by outfitters in the area to determine if the river is too high for tubing and can be compared to the average level to gauge how rapid the trip will be. Please be advised that rocks are slippery when wet. There are numerous rocks at our exit point, so be careful, slow, and sure-footed when leaving the river. We hate to use the word "treacherous", but let's be frank: if you are not careful, slow, and sure-footed when exiting the river, you could fall down, get wet, and potentially cut yourself on the rocks or otherwise get injured.

Tube trips run daily Memorial Day thru Labor Day.
