Flat Water Tubing
Kick Back and Relax on the River
Serene tubing on the beautiful Shenandoah
Adults, Families, and Kids love our flat water tubing trips. We provide the tubes and the river shuttles, and if you like you can even rent floating coolers so you can keep snacks and drinks alongside as you float down the river!

Covid-19 and Tubing
In order to reduce crowd sizes, we are limiting tubing to a single float trip per guest. We had to take this unusual step in order to reduce the crowd sizes that build up as the day goes on, when people take their second and third float trips.
