I booked a tubing trip for me and a few friends this August. While the river was beautiful and relaxing I was very turned off by the staff and lack of safety.
No one seemed to know what they were doing or care about anyone's safety. We got there early, checked in and were told to wait outside for our name to be called "soon." An hour later we finally boarded a bus but this was after having to approach several staff members and ask them when we were leaving. There was one frazzled 16 year old who looked like he was on his first day on the job with no training or instructions from management. I told him one of the receipts he was holding was my group and then he let my group board but honestly anyone could have said the same thing and I doubt they would have been organized enough to check it. No one told us to grab a life vest, we had to ask another customer where to pick one up. When we got to the drop off point the teenage gave a safety speech to half the group and I'm sure the other half didn't hear it. Moreover there was nothing to check who actually got on the bus and who made it back at the end of day. I don't think they even counted the inner tubes to notice how many made it back at the end of the day. Next time I go tubing I'm using a different company.
