Great way to cool off if you go on weekdays during spring/summer time. otherwise forget it... wear shoes when you go into the water as lots of residue (glass, cans, ...)

The wife and I have read about the tubing and decided to try it out. It was hot 105 out so it was a good day to go. The river temp was 68 degrees but you did not feel it. The river was moving pretty quickly and we got in and away we went. There were some white water parts... More

What a fun day! We really didn't know what to expect and were pleasantly surprised. The river is really clear. The water was refreshing. The views were so pretty. In addition there were parts of the river that has small rapids. That made the trip very fun. During the slower parts we pulled out our cooler and had sandwiches while... More

I have been tubing down the salt river so many times and it never gets old. This is the best experience anyone can have in Arizona. When the weather is so hot and your pool feels like bathwater it is so warm , the river is the place to go. All ages will love tubing down the river. The staff... More

Visited Salt River during my vacation to Arizona. I highly recommend as the experience is inexpensive, but very enjoyable. The weather was extremely hot, but it was easy to cool off in the river. Bring a cooler full of snacks and lots of water! I recommend wearing water shoes or something closed toed. The scenery is incredible. Have fun!

We arrived around 10:00 on Sunday labor day weekend. We had never done this before. So we were a lil freaked out with the amount of people there. Not to worry. They have this all worked out. #1 Cash only... $17.00 per tube and includes ride to and from the river. #2 for every 5 tubes they need one valid... More

Those who go tubing and behave responsibly can have a good time. Too many people take along a lot of alcohol, they get obnoxious and combative. Many tie their tubes together, which can result in entanglements and drownings. Far too many people leave litter behind for volunteers to clean up at the end of the season. I played here as... More

Tubing down the river was awesome - so relaxing, occasional (fun!) small rapids and wild horses that come to play in the water. However, this review is for the company that offers tube rentals. I would not recommend it. Bring your own tube and you're good to go. The customer service with this company is the worst I've experienced from... More
