Tubing

Whitewater tubing is a fantastic way to cool off with fun and adventure on those hot Summer Days! Join us for the day for a great escape.

All Children Must Be 42" or Taller to Tube!

Schedule Your Ride!

Our tubing schedule is based on the daily releases from the Tuxedo Hydro Station upriver. We update our schedule daily on our Facebook page and we strongly recommend checking the schedule before heading our way. We try to stay as up-to-date as possible, but please know that the dam release is out of our control! Tubing operations run from approximately 11:00am – 4:00pm each day.

We run 7 days per week during the season (Memorial Day—Labor Day) as weather and dam releases allow. Reservations are not required, but they are accepted and recommended if you would like to reserve one of our premium tube trackers, mini-cats, or kayaks. Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are our busiest days. On these days, we recommend arriving closer to the start time for the float you would like to do to assure you are on the water in time. If you appreciate a smaller crowd, come during the week! Please remember that all children must be 42″ or taller to tube.

Frequently asked questions

No! There are class I & II rapids. This is a natural river so there is fast-moving water, rocks, deep spots, trees, and other obstacles to deal with. We recommend that you be able to swim and if there is any question that you take a life jacket (they are provided).
Reservations are not required, particularly if you are planning to rent a standard tube. If you would like to use a premium tube tracker, mini-cat or kayak, we DO recommend that you make a reservation in advance. If you have a group of 20 or more it is also extremely helpful to know that you are coming. Please either give us a call or shoot us a quick email in advance of your trip. Emails should include intended day, time and number of tubers. Thank you!

All children must be 42" or taller to tube—no exceptions. We strongly suggest that all children be over the age of seven. This is not a lazy river; there are deep areas and current. Children under 13 are required to wear a life jacket (a connector strap is provided for children's tubes). Life jackets are provided to anyone on request! You are welcome to bring your own, but be sure it is rated for moving water. Children must wear approved life jackets, "swim assist" equipment is not sufficient.

Sunscreen, towels, change of clothes, river shoes or shoes with a strap… we do not recommend flip flops! Non-disposable, refillable water bottles that can be clipped on to your bathing suit or tube. Disposable water bottles and other forms of trash should NOT be brought onto the river with you as they usually end up in the river… no littering!
Everything! Seriously, take your refillable water bottle, but leave everything else. You are strongly encouraged to leave your keys in the office after locking up your car. Locksmiths are expensive!! Plus if we have your keys, we know you are still on the water! If you are renting a premium tube or kayak, or you are doing a longer float, you are required to leave your keys.
There are snacks and drinks for sale in the office. We also are introducing a new food truck this season that will serve pizza, chicken tenders, wings and more! Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for updates regarding when food will officially become available onsite! You are also welcome to bring your own picnic and enjoy it on the grounds before or after your trip. We have trash receptacles for your use. Please remember that we strongly encourage you to NOT take anything on the river with you. You are responsible for the trash as there are no public areas to throw anything away. PLEASE help us keep the beautiful Green River clean!
We do NOT rent cooler tubes and we do not encourage use of them on the Green River. Please remember that if you take something on the river, you are responsible for the trash. PLEASE NO styrofoam or glass.
Alcohol is not allowed on the Green River or within 50' of the banks. This is regulated by the local police department and game wardens. There is a large fine for everyone in the party if alcohol is discovered.
Dogs are not allowed to go tubing with us and are not allowed to be left unattended.
