My husband and I went on a mini vacation to the mountains and went tubing for the first time. This is a first class operation. You could tell they paid attention to all the details. We would highly recommend them. So much fun!

The guides were great and we enjoyed our trip! Lunch was buffet style sandwiches, which was great as we could put what we wanted instead of having to scrape off mayo!

Very relaxing - the water was a little chilly at first but it was not an issue. The crews at the launch point took care of everything. We'll be back!

Great crew, relaxing float just as described! The tubes with back rests and bottoms were perfect for my wife and I.
