Awesome!
Oct 2021
Our cabin was about 5 feet from the river. That was amazing. We got to enjoy the beauty and sound of the river for several days. In October, it was a bit cool to enjoy rafting or tubing.

Great fun
Jul 2021
The value of the ticket was worth the float. Customers are allowed to stay in the river as long as they wish from a 1 to 2 hour trip. Buses pick up and drop you off at same location and many buses run on a tight regular schedule. No long waiting or line. Highly recommend!

MUST DO in Helen GA
Jul 2021
This may be the most popular thing to do in Helen! Cool River tubing offers two tubing lengths so you can decide how long you want to be on the river. There was a lot of rain the week we stayed, making the river rise. My family said lots of people flipped and my Dad actually fell off of his tube, losing his stick and hit his head on a rock. Definitely recommend the stick rental because many people get stuck on rocks. Tether with your group members because you easily and quickly get separated on the river. Lots of fun for the young and old. Lower water levels would probably have made for a less intense ride.

Great Two Hour Outing
Jul 2021
We enjoyed the Cool River Tubing two hour excursion down the Chattahoochee River. There was no safety briefing or identifying that the water depth ranges greatly down the course of the river. The float down the river does require a push stick for a fee although it is helpful in keeping you off the rocks and riverbanks. Be aware that the water in places can be over 10-12 feet deep during your float. Purchase water shoes and be mindful of where the current increases during your travels and it will be a memorable experience.

Fun trip

Water was amazing but cold. Tubes need a back to rest your head. Kiddo enjoyed it. Even though the water was cold, saw snakes on the banks.

Family's Favorites spot
Jul 2021
There are so many amazing things to do in Helen but this is our entire families favorite spot. We sit on the river in tubes for hours every day. Sometimes we are floating, sometimes riding rapids and other times just sitting in our tubes and watching other people fall off in the rapids! Never knew I would be a river rat, but the Hooch proved me wrong!

Fun Time Floating Down the Hooch
Jun 2021
We went tubing on the Chattahoochee and it was a fun trip. Our resort was located on the river at a shallow point so our grandkids loved stomping around there.
