Highlight of our trip every year

Price is very affordable - $17 per person for all day. You can rent an extra tube with a bucket to put your stuff, or a cooler, in. It is so relaxing, and you feel so much cooler... read more

Brilliant day floating down the salt river took a couple hours from put in to put out - went with local friends and just went on inner tubes they had it was awesome. You can pay and go with the outfit they charge around $14 for a bus ride plus tyre tube hire It's probably the only place you can... More

I typically would review Salt River Tubing is an excellent day of river fun. Today not so much. Learn from our experience. We arrived at 1:30 knowing the last rental is at 2pm and final pick up 6:30. What we didn't know is that limits you to the 2.5 hour float rather than the 5 hour full ride. This was... More

How about a peaceful float for 4 hours? If you go early, there are birds and animals near the waters edge. As the day goes on, large groups have a great time together. There are wild horses to keep on the lookout for.

It's hot outside and the water is a little chilly but you love it after frying in the AZ sun. Very peaceful floating with some cool Rapids, which are very mild. Bring plenty of liquids and your all set. Cool to see wild horses taking drinks from the river.

I'm going for my third time in a few weeks from now. I quickly learned don't bring anything that u'd be devastated if it got wet or lost in the river! My group brings old sheets to tie on the tubes to protect ur skin from the hot rubber, we also tie our tubes together. There are a few parts... More

We have come here for 7 years...all the way from LA. It must be worth it to drive all that way and hop on a tube right? Well it certainly is! I'll get to the main points you must address before getting on the river. #1 and most important...buy/bring a sheet for the tube!!! I can't stress enough how miserable... More

We were having a family reunion in the Phoenix area and decided this as an activity. We had a group of 60 people and the staff from Judy to Brooke to all the bus drivers were awesome. My family had an amazing time. In a group as large as ours, there is bound to be separation and that's exactly what... More

I took my teenage daughter to float the river while my husband was attending a conference. I had been on the river back in 2004 but didn't remember a lot about it. We arrived around 12:30pm on a Tuesday afternoon. There was quite a line of people renting their tubes, as well as waiting for the bus. Both lines moved... More
