Whitewater Tubing

Whitewater Tubing

The Most Exciting Tubing Adventure at Harpers Ferry!

Enjoy river tubing on the Potomac River where it meets the Shenandoah. You’ll get to experience the thrills of beginner class I-III rapids while taking in spectacular views along one of the most scenic river regions in the country!

For a relaxing and fun way to enjoy the trip even more, you can hop onto the large island-like rocks in the middle of the river and have your own picnic or do some sunbathing.

Don’t worry about walking up any of the hills once you’ve reached the end of your tubing trip. Once you’re out of the water, you’ll be taken on a short ride up the hill in one of our 5-Ton military vehicles (an adventure all in its own).

At the end of your trip, you can freshen up and wash off in our new bathhouse equipped with sinks, toilets and hot showers.

All Day Tubing

Each trip is about 2 hours long, depending on river conditions. Want more? Take the trip again! Just ask to be shuttled back to the tubing starting point. For maximum fun, it’s a good idea to arrive early so you can fit in as many trips down the river as you want before we have to close for the day.
