It was a Monday morning... Not much of a crowd. Quick Service, very helpful. Just did half of the run and wished we would have done it all. We've been many times so we were aware of how to be prepared, sheets, rope, cooler, sealed plastic baggie etc... Beautiful scenery, including the horses. Great place to bring guests from east...

Sadly, a bad experience. A young person's drinking experience with wet marshmellows thrown about in a packed river along with the puke....don't dip your head in the water! Oh, I forgot that there was no safety briefing....no security.....no protection for car keys/valuables.....take them with you in a non netted rudimentary truck inner tube??! That was all manageable....until the exit #4... More

They run a smooth operation. The $17 is a good value. The website tells you everything you need to know. I would suggest bringing an old fitted sheet cut in half to cover the tube. The entire float is gorgeous - lots of mountains - a we saw about 15 wild horses drinking at the river edge at a couple... More

Great group experience in Phoenix. Float for 3 hours with friends in the sun and drink beverages. Buy water shoes at grocery store for $6, get an extra tube for cooler, and bring towels or bed sheets to cover tubes. Drink water otherwise the end of the river is difficult to get out.

Our group of 4 really enjoyed tubing on the Salt River. The river was very cool and it felt great in the hot sun. We floated for approximately 3 hours. This is a fun trip for groups of friends or families. Be sure to rent an extra tube for your cooler and it's a good idea to tie your tubes... More

I got burnt, but had a great time. Make sure you bring marshmallows, they have marshmallow wars on the river!

We had so much fun the 1st time that we went a 2nd time! 4 & 6 hr trip. A few for places to stop along the way to do picnics if you want. They also have cooler tubes that you can rent. Well worth the money!

You used to be able to back your truck up to the waters edge. It was like college break. Beer women and a good time till the government put their Nazi footprint to it. I'm not going anywhere that treats people like cattle.

We had a great time on the river. The views were awesome and even got to see 5 horses drinking in the river. It took all of 4.5 hoirs in the river. They run a very efficient business there. What I think people need to know is that there are no signs going to their business. Our GPS took us... More
