I wanted to try tubing with friends to see if it would be a good activity for me to do with my daughters. We decided on Green River Cove because it said the rapids weren't too rough. That is a true statement. I think I could take my 13 and 10 year old to do this. However, there are a... More

Good for a hot summer day cheap adventure. About an hour drive from upstate South Carolina. Simple to get there, you pay, they hold your keys for you, and they drive you up the mountain in a bus and drop you off. Very simple and relaxing. You can also get a mini tube that has a solid bottom if you... More

I had an excellent time, but this could be dangerous for kids. As several reviewers have stated, your kids will get separated from you when you hit any of the faster moving rapids and there are rocks and fallen trees in the river, along with many kayakers. Some of the kayakers were rude and racing by in tight spots hitting... More

We decided on last minute tubing trip. Green River was fabulous. Family operated, friendly, no frills! All we needed was a quality tub for our float and a ride back to our car. Our 3 mile trip tool close to three hours. The ride was so fun with lots of fast water. Best tubing trip we have taken.

You should probably try the 2 hour to start. The lower section is a bit more difficult than the upper section especially if you're taking your dog as we did.

The Green River Gorge is about 30 miles north of Spartanburg traveling up I-26. The road into the gorge itself is VERY steep and winding. Take your time driving on it. We checked ahead of time to make sure that the dam was releasing water that day. My understanding is that water is released most days but you without the... More

My husband took me there for my birthday last year it was awesome and peaceful. They had a ride to pick us up and take us to tube. Great prices they also helped us unload and told us where to enter. Would take my young son if we ever went again they offered life jackets as well. Great way to... More

I had never been tubing down a river before, so and friend and I gave it a try. We chose Green River Cove Tubing Co. and I must say it was an excellent choice. They give you an option to do the 6 miles for $14.00 and we loved it! They provide the tubes, a life jacket, bus ride to... More

If you can get there right when they open plan to do that. It was already crowded by the time our 2 hour tubing trip was over. The bus takes you and your tube up to the drop point. If traveling with small kids ask for a smaller tube and even a rope for their tube so you can attach... More

We had a great day! Great price! $9 for each tuber. We did Lower Rapids and started right at facility. Took over 2 hours with two young children, but so happy it did. Would have loved staying on longer. Tips: They do not give instructions what so ever except to get out when you see sign to get out. The... More
