This is a fun filled experience for families and all ages. The tubing trip is relaxing and enjoyable. Sometimes you get stuck, so the stick is helpful to get you going. Everyone on the river is friendly and helpful. Good time!

This was my first tubing experience on the Chattahoochee. It is a generally slow float down the river, however you do get stuck in some places. I highly recommend getting a stick.
