“2nd year is a charm..”

Delaware River Tubing
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Me and 10 other friends decided to go river tubing second year in a row. We lucked out with 88 degree weather and sun and we did the 4 hour excursion. Sound like a lot of time but its enough time to float, nap, explore mini islands, etc. We decided to take every path to the right which has some semi-rapid rafts which were fun and woke me up.

Definitely go on a day with good weather because our time FLEW. We also made a mistake and missed the hot dog man on the river for our complimentary food, woops! Next year we will coordinate this a little better to really take advantage of their prices.

My family of 4 has tubed here several times. With the groupin discount it is very affordable.
I can put up with the long lines, even though we paid in advance, the lack of instruction or supervision, the changing tents.
But yesterday was it.
When you land at the finish there aren't any steps or even flat spaces to step.
The incline is about 35-40 degrees of very silty, slippery mud. No one from the company helps.
My 13 year old daughter started climbing with her tube and fell, slid to bottom into water. The attendants never so much so muched as asked her if she was ok or needed help. Actually people laughed and clapped.
Nice way to end a day.
All this is within sight of the tubing place across the river, which, get this, has a landing and is way cheaper.
For the amount of people the company gets to tube, they could and should be able to get their act together.
Too bad, won't go again.

Thank you for your review. Thank you for your input about our exit and our exit staff. We are truly sorry about the condition of our exit last year, we were having problems getting the correct permits and we do understand your consternation. Fortunately, we will have stairs at the start of this year once again. We are hiring new staff this year and hope that if you do come to us in the future you will let us know if you receive any subpar service. Thanks again - Delaware River Tubing

Floated down the Delaware River today as we have for the past 5 years. Because of a Groupon we decided to stay on the Jersey side instead of venturing into PA (River Country, Pnt Pleasant, PA). As expected, the river was beautiful and so was the ride down. Dealing with the Delaware River Company was an entirely different story. There set up is very unorganized. Too many lines to wait on and their staff if not rude was not very helpful. The bus situation getting their guests to and from the river is also ridiculous. The Groupon deal is defintely not worth it Cross the bridge into PA and set off from River Country. Will not recommend this place.

Another spot to let you float as much of your day away as you choose. Great way to lounge in the sun and enjoy the nature around you.

This was ok. The first half of the trip was thoroughly unpleasant. We went at a glacial speed and when I got out of the tube to push it along (without pushing we would have been in the water for at least 8 hours) I slipped many times (it was worth it to get out of the water). The halfway point is a hot dog stand with absolutely revolting food. The second half went much faster and was even enjoyable, however.

We thank you for your mixed review - we're sorry about your experience at the River Hotdogman as it is generally well received. Unfortunately, I believe the river must have been low that day (making the water move much slower than normal) and we hope that won't deter you from coming on a better day! Thanks - Delaware River Tubing!
