Review of Cool River Tubing

Cool River Tubing
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We live in the area and go tubing every now and then. This business is run buy very nice peole and the choice of one or two hour tubing down the river for only five dollars makes for a great outing. The only thing I would suggest is not to go on a summer weekend or a summer hoilday, very crowded. But, if you choose the right time it is a wonderful trip.

What a great place to go tubing down the river in Helen. Easiest thing to do is to drive up to the zip line part of the Cool River Tubing and then start there. It is very inexpensive and easy to do. You won't be let down and will have a great time.

We had a nice trip. All the staff we dealt with were nice. We went midweek and there were tons of people, I would imagine it is ridiculous on weekends. The river was low so got stuck a fair amount, definitely get the stick or u will have to get out of your tube a lot. Also ask for a strap to attach your group's tubes together. My husband and I strapped outs together and I believe it wouldn't have been nearly as much fun separate,

Second time I've travelled to Helen from Atlanta for the tubing.

Can't beat the value for this kind of entertainment. $5 (per person) for two hours floating down the river in a rubber ring!

Nice way to cool down in the crazy hot Georgia summers (we're from the UK).

The river is busy with fellow tubers, but that doesn't make much of a difference. Queuing for rings can be long during school holidays though so get there early.

Cool tubing recommends a pole/stick for pushing yourself off when your ring gets stuck in the shallow waters. They charge about $3 if you want one and you haven't come prepared. My group didn't bother with poles and we felt like we had made the right choice. It's just as easy to wiggle yourself free or just get out the ring, stand up and lift your ring off the rock you're stuck on.

Every summer it is a just to visit Cool River Tubing in Helen, GA. Fun for the whole family. My advice is to get there early, take water shoes and a long stick. Love the gift shop also. They had curt shirts this year. Afterwards, enjoy lunch at one of the local places to eat. Enjoy and have fun!
