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 :)

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

Thanks for choosing Madison River Tubing and so happy to hear your experience on and off water was 5 stars. A cooler for bevvies is a must in the hot weather. Hope you can come see us again!

On this beautiful August day we used this company for an enjoyable tube float down the Madison River in Montana.
So what makes this company an excellent choice? They arrived at the launch site early. They were very well organized. Very polite and equally helpful for the very young and seniors. They showed good humor and by the end of their talk about what to expect and safety we were excited to get started.
At the pickup ramp down river they were there well ahead of the first floaters and very helpful getting everyone safely ashore.
Everything was exceptionally well organized.
The float down river was a wonderful time on a majestic and famous Montana river.

We have tubed in multiple places around the country. This is the best experience we have ever had tubing. We rented tubes for our group, a cooler tube, and a bluetooth speaker. The weather was fantastic, the area you float through is gorgeous, and the service from Madison River Tubing makes it all so easy.

Even with the curveball of COVID-19, this group raised it's service to meet the challenge. They meet you at the put in with everything you need. Their waiver is online, all employees wear masks, and they have a quick and easy transportation plan to get you on your way after your float is finished.

We love to tube and we will tube in other places on future trips. I highly doubt we will ever work with a better group than Madison River Tubing.

It was great beginning to end. On-line booking easy and when I had to call with a question they were super friendly, courteous and professional. Check-in was easy, they load your cooler for you. All you have to do is get in, sit back and float away. Brant was awesome. He helped get us in and also drove the shuttle back to our vehicle. Oh, and the best thing? Very reasonable rates!! We often cringe when pricing activities at places where we stay. I was pleasantly shocked. This is a great family activity that won't blow-up your budget.

Usually float and shuttle with friends, but had family visiting, not enough tubes/SUPs and planned for a weekday so needed a shuttle and knew Montana Whitewater provided services on the Madison. Great experience, friendly and knowledgeable employees, would highly recommend whether you’re a local in my situation or a visitor to the area. Plus, you don’t need to get a MT conservation license because they gotcha covered under their permit ( but get one if you do it on your own 😉)

Everything went do smoothly! The lady, Michelle?, was very helpful with our reservation when I explained the minor challenges I had. She recommended going to a reservoir vs river to best fit what we needed.

We rented two inflatable kayaks and two inflatable paddle boards. When we arrived to pick them up, Mia was incredibly helpful and patient explaining everything to us; how to inflate, what not to do, and gave us tips on how to have a better experience. This was the busiest day of the year, and she was so patient and kind and helpful. We had a full 24 hours to return the gear, but didn’t need that much time.

When we returned the gear, it was busy still. But the guy with the lamb chops was great, really friendly and helpful.

If you need to cool off in the heat, rent from these guys-reserve in advance though!! You will be treated like the special person you are. :-)

Completely recommend a float trip on the Madison! Rent the cooler (comes with ice) and if you have to take valuables, put them in a double ziploc - I put my phone in ziplocs so I could take it out and snap some photos then throw it in the cooler. (I forgot my waterproof plastic phone lanyard at home). Tethered together with the cooler in a fourth tube, our family of three had fun and good conversation floating 8 miles down the river. We even took squirt guns we bought at CVS! Warning, pack your sunscreen in the cooler also, and reapply often, as we all came home with some extra sun on our legs. Hats helped a lot. This was our final activity on our 10-day trip and the perfect way to end our Montana and Wyoming getaway. The staff was super nice and accommodating too.

We kept seeing advertisements for Madison River Tubing around Bozeman and last minute decided to call and see if they can fit in 2 people the day of. They were so friendly and accommodating on the phone and our time tubing was the best addition to our trip! Madison River has to-die-for views of the mountains and we even got to see a bald eagle soaring over the river. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to add a little adventure to their trip!

This was a fun experience. We went with another family and had a great time but not sure we would do this again. We are all from out of state and rented the tubes in Bozeman and didn’t realize the river is another 30 minutes away! We had 2 cars so we drove ourselves. We get to the put in location and realized they shorted us 1 tube! So 2 people shared a tube. Not ideal but we had no other option and it worked out. It took about 2 hours to float and it’s kinda like a lazy river. Water was warm and moved quick. Very beautiful float. The takeout location was very interesting. Everyone was completely wasted except for us. We had a group of 10 which included 6 kids. I’m sure everyone else had a different experience than us, but people were chugging vodka from the bottle, girls were puking from being so drunk, people were swearing, pretty much everyone there was blitzed!
