We make the float down the river each summer an annual family event. Cool River Tubing is a class act. Check in is easy, affordable and their customer service is friendly and pleasant. The river does not have large scary rapids. Its a calm relaxing trip down with a few exciting moments of fast water through large rock formations. Pay... More

You really need to do this activity with friends and family. The kids love it and the price is so reasonable, just a few bucks. I would suggest if you're going with a group that you only tie the tubes in a row, not in a circle, you'll be sorry when you hit some rough spots. If your kids are... More

In spite of being very crowded and too shallow in many places, we loved it. Met some great folks along the way. The trip is longer than I expected and the price was fair.

Went down the river in august when the water was lower and still had a great time. Had to push thru a few areas so the push stick was worth the five dollars. What a wonderful way to spend the day with the kids an not spend a fortune.

Well...it is a reasonable price for a day of fun..but it's alot of hard work and no place for young children if there has been ANY rain the week you are there. I was really looking forward to this tubing trip. It was the biggest reason we chose Helen as our destination. However, we did not realize just how quickly... More

Cool River Tubing is very affordable for a family. When you purchase your tour, you select the short ride or the long ride. The staff will advise you as to how long each ride should probably last depending on the water level, and sometimes when the water is lower only the shorter ride is available. I strongly suggest you get... More

One hot day we went to the Cool River Tubing Company to try our luck floating down the Chattahoochee River. We paid our $5 to rent the tube and purchased one stick for $5 between us to assist us with navigating the river. We then selected a tube and got a strap so we could tether our tubes together so...

I loved it all. It is a cheap way to have a lot of fun!! You need to make sure you go when it has rained a lot so the river is moving good.
