We were looking for a quick and fun excursion while in Phoenix for a convention. Price was great, only $17 and were given a $7 coupon to come again. What a great way to beat the heat in AZ. We had no idea what we were doing, but everyone on the river was very helpful and fun. There were a... More

The river is dirty with trash. People really need to have a little more respect for others, too much drinking and not at all safe, this used to be a fun place to go but we seriously turned around and went home, very disappointed

We've lived here for 17 years and finally did this. The check-out process is good and simple. As someone who recently reviewed this it definitely pays to be prepared! Also, if you are my age and/or don't want to deal with the party atmosphere that comes with such and adventure then you'd best stay home. Also a point to be... More

They make it easy and it could be fun if it weren't for all the garbage in the river. It used to be a summer destination for my husband and I and our daughters every year. Last year in 2013 we did the 3 hour drive to the river and even invited friends to join us. It's a beautiful location,... More

This river cruise with tubs was really nice. The scenery was out of this world! We saw 3 horses and a colt drinking some of the water it so cool! But at the beginning we started with a group of collage kids and young adults on our tale causing so much noise and half the time it was cursing and... More

It's been years since my last tubing experience but just as much fun as I remembered! A short drive from Saguaro Lake - easy breezy tube rental $17 for tube and shuttles to and from river and helpful shuttle drivers handling the tubes on and off bus. Free parking. River pleasently cool - little rapids now and then but not... More

Get an early start for two reasons - the HOT sun and if the river isn't flowing fast enough (controlled by the dam at Saguaro Lake I learned) then you won't make it to end before dusk. Bring plenty to drink and sunscreen. Packed on the week-end. Also have a DD - police station right across street

I tubed the Salt River last year on a week day with my adult kids and boy was that relaxing! The company running the tube concession did a real good job of being organized, getting our small group outfitted with tubes and bussing us to the jumping in point. I know sometimes, especially the weekends and holidays, that it's a... More
