Our family went tubing on the Fourth of July. The weather was conducive to outdoor recreation, so we made a last-minute plan to go tubing. I made reservations at 10:00am for our family of five to launch at 12:30pm. What a wonderful afternoon! We were...More

I am sorry that we could not make it work for you. With the high waters mid week, our phone was ringing non stop with people re-booking their floats with us. Our most popular time slots were filling up quickly. Thank you for your input.

Great service... River is pretty lackluster. I don't regret the trip.. Just won't do it again. If you're in the area go for it.
