Our group of 9 had a wonderful time tubing the Tuck yesterday. We had teens and adults with varying levels of adventure experience, and everyone had fun. It was a high water day, so we were on the "high adventure" tubing, self guided trip. We...More

The rafting was awesome. Clay did an incredible job as well as the team at riverside. Would highly recommend for a family trip. Be sure to keep an eye out for the bald eagle.

So their slogan is "mom approved" and it was rather mild rapids. I had my 13 y/o and others had much younger kids. It was great, nothing too crazy but you do get a little excitement here and there. It's about a 1.5 hour float...More

Alex was our guide. He was awesome! It was a lazy float down the river. We stopped for water and snacks halfway through the 2 hr float. You can man your own float/kayak/inner tube if you so desire.

Three of us went on an adventure tubing trip down the river. We got there right as they were opening and it was easy to pay, get our briefing, and get on the tubes. The cooler tube was a free addition, as was my husband's...More

They shuttle you back from your trip down the river, but I don't believe they'll come to pick you up at home or your hotel.
