These guys are awesome! We booked a private tubing trip for about 70 people for our wedding weekend. We were unsure if we could go due to the recent flooding, but Madison River gave us an alternative and safer option to go rafting instead. They easily handled all 70 of us and we had a BLAST! Andrew our bus driver was great and very patient with us. My only complaint is that the trip wasn't long enough because the river was going too fast... we were having TOO MUCH FUN! Thanks guys, we'll definitely use you in the future.

This was the 2nd time we (my sister and I who are both in our early 60s and athletically fit but weight only 225 lbs total between us) did the trip - both times in mid-August. We so enjoy the float! However, words of caution to anyone that doesn't have a couple of strong men with them! The exit point at Black's Ford has a wide boat launch that clients are instructed to use to exit. The big problem is when the ramp is too crowded with other tubers or, worse yet, 2 big 4x4 Dodge Rams with boat trailers are backing down the ramp into the water just when you are arriving and can't see you. You basically cannot wait to float into the ramp...it's too late as the river continues to push you further beyond the ramp into mini rapids that don't allow you to easily get out of the tube, stand up (it's hell trying to stay standing in this area that is a bit downstream from the ramp) and get to shore. So, the advice is to get close to shore well before the ramp (at least 50 feet), get out of your tubes and walk the tubes to the ramp area.

Thank you for the great review! We appreciate the feedback on the takeout/exit ramp. We will try to come up with some strategies to make this a better process for our tubers :)

Wanted to do something on the water while in Bozeman area. This was an excellent choice! My husband, 2 sons and I loved floating in the tubes . We added the cooler, speaker and dry bag and that was a good choice. It’s about a 6 mile float down the Madison and took a little over 2 hours. It was so relaxing and the water temp was just right. Would highly recommend for any age ( a lot of people even had their dogs) !

Thank you so much for the kind review! Tubing is also one of our favorite activities :) But we may be a little bias.

Our family of 6 went tubing for a fun afternoon. The tubing itself lasts only for about 2 hours which was enough time. You have to pay attention for rocks and what's ahead, which isn't hard but don't expect to just lay there and nap. The company was great to work with - highly recommend getting at least a cooler because it can get hot out there. We were very blessed even though we just brought bottled water along. Company provided all the necessary equipment and they were very easy to work with

We rented paddle boards, kayaks, and tubes from Madison river tubing and went hiyalite for the day. It was a great experience and the staff was awesome. Would definitely rent from here again.
