If you have a bad back.. I would stay away.. the water can get low at times and you will get stuck. Even with water shoes walking on the rocks was hard.. if not careful you could easily sprain your ankle. . Having said all that me and my two kids enjoyed it.. although we lost our go pro.. ***...

We went tubbing on the river..... this is a very popular attraction with 2 excellent tubbing companies to chose from. The bus will take you to the top of the tub run and pick you up at the bottom. Don't miss this experience!

This river winds its way through Helen and you can wade, fish or go tubing on it. We did the latter and had so much fun. There are cafes and restaurants in Helen where you can sit and have a drink and watch the tubers on the river. Amazing!!

This is so relaxing and a must do while you are in Helen! Free parking and shuttle to the drop off points. You have the option of 1 hour ride or 2/12 hour ride down the river. If your hotel is on the river, you can hop off and take a break.

My husband and I had a blast on the 2hr trip. The water was a little low, so we got stuck a couple of times, but we both had walking sticks so that kept us from getting stuck as often as a lot of others. We also used the strap to pull each other out when one was stuck and... More
