About Smoky Mountain Tube & Raft
Cherokee's and western North Carolina's number one tube and raft trip with over 200 tubes in stock, which means no waiting! We have tube and raft trips designed for everyone of every age. A great experience to see the Smokies from a unique point of view. Always cool and refreshing during the summer heat, a relaxing float down the Oconoluftee River is a welcome departure from the crowds of the reservations busy summer months. A Cherokee favorite for over 20 years! AGES 5 AND UP.

This was literally the best thing we could have done in Cherokee on a hot day in July. For only $12 per person, you can float down the Oconaluftee River right through the town of Cherokee for 2-3 hours with drop off and pick-up in a re-purposed school bus staffed by friendly

Super fun. The staff are so nice. Highly recommend especially over the other tubing places nearby. They take you and pick you up from the locations.
