Wear bathing suits or shorts; or whatever you are comfortable swimming in. It's also a good idea to wear something on your feet: Sneakers, Teva's, water shoes, or wetsuit boots. Don't wear heavy boots.
Leave all unnecessary items that you don't want to lose, at home(eyeglasses, watches, rings, favorite hats, and jewelry are commonly lost during tubing.)
Our P.F.D.'s (life jackets) get a lot of use and are always wet. We do wash them weekly but they still smell. You can bring your own coast guard approved P.F.D. (life jacket) to wear instead of using the ones that we supply. If you bring your own it must be a coast guard approved P.F.D. (life jacket).
Changing houses and restroom facilities are also available.
Although no effort is spared to provide you with a safe tubing experience, water and river activities have both inherent and unknown risks and dangers. These include but are not limited to injury or loss of life. Assistants are posted at the second set of rapids (this is the largest set during the tube ride) to assist you if you have an emergency. The rest of the river is unattended and you will be on your own. Everyone (including minors) must sign a waiver before tubing down the river.
This includes the rental of a specially designed river tube, a personal flotation device (life jacket), a shuttle bus ride from the take-out point to the starting point, and all the sun and fun you can pack into your ride. You can tube again the same day for an additional $10.00.
Always call the day you are coming for hours, times, conditions. Days, hours, times, subject to change without notice.
The daily hours do change depending on many factors including but not limited to; weather conditions, river conditions, and the time of year.
The daily hours are the earliest and latest times you can enter the river to start. There are no exceptions. Allow yourself enough travel time to get here with enough time to sign up, pay, and start by the designated latest start time.
A deposit is required for rental. Your car keys are preferred so you don’t lose them in the river and we have numbered key hooks to hang them on. You can also leave a drivers license, I.D. or something similar that will fit in a snack sized bag and hang on our numbered key hooks.
*Always call to check the day’s conditions and hours of rentals as they do change dependent upon river conditions and weather forecasts. 860-693-6465
