Great experience.

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

We had a great day of tubing, a well spent $9 per person! You'd spend way more than that a movie and get only 2 hrs of entertainment max! The 3 mile float seemed to take us about 3 hours. The water was GREAT. Lots of small whitewater that was super fun to ride through on a tube. There is... More

I recently took my two boys tubing, ages 8 & 10. They are a great age for this trip and had a good time. The staff are all very nice, but not a lot of instruction is provided. If you have never gone before, it helps to know a few things. If you plan to do the long trip, you... More

Had a great time tubing with the family. Staff friendly. Can't wait to go back. Picnic tables on site. No bathroom for changing, only port-a-jon so come ready and dressed for tubing.

We did the 3 mile/2 hour tube ride for $9. They take you in a bus and drop you off to put in your tube. You get out where your car is parked. I liked not having to get on a bus after the tubing. The tubes were clean and good quality. The tube ride is fun but rocky. Several... More
