My boyfriend and I decided to beat the heat and do a lazy river w/ the Adirondack Tubing Adventures. I checked around and this seemed to me the best bet and I was right. Everything was very affordable, organized and the staff was super friendly. They have bathrooms, changing room, life jackets, water shoes (rent or own) all in decent shape. I just wore my flip flops but for the not so agile you will deft want to wear the water shoes. You don't have a choice you have to have something on your feet. It's not smart to wear your glasses or bring anything w/ you that is unnecessary (two people on our trip were fooling around in the kayaks and lost their glasses, oops.) (A word to the wise for all the females, I wore my bathing suit top and bottoms but put shorts over my bottoms so I didn't have to worry about them falling off or adjusting, I wouldn't do sun glasses unless they float, flip flops are fine if you aren't going to cry when you lose them, hair tie, change of clothes and towel) They also have a small cooler with various drinks. The location is convenient because there is a small local store next door where you can get pretty much anything you need BUT no ATM (I wanted to tip my guide for doing such an AWESOME job!) We did the 2 hour trip and it was very fun and relaxing. We upgraded for just a few dollars on the tube w/ a back rest and drink cup (worth it) The short bus trip to the river was adventurous and quick, during the trip our guide gave us some insight on the river and what we would be doing upon arrival. To mix things up a bit our guide, Blake (the best) gave us the option of jumping off some rocks or head to a beach, our group decided the beach. My boyfriend and I tied our tubes together which I preferred that way we could stay together and just relax. Our guide knew the river like the back of his hand, letting us know what we would be expecting and where to go on the river all the while navigating us with his kayak to make sure we were going in the right direction, talking and making us laugh. The trip was scenic, relaxing and fun. I highly recommend Adirondack Tubing Adventures and their guide Blake if you wish to have the best lazy river experience. The next time we go we are going to try the 4 hour trip. If you want something that is organized, convenient, clean, safe, affordable, and NOT gimmicky like, Tubby Tubes, then this would be your best bet BY FAR!
