Owner description: Sandy Shores Tubing offers a 3 mile river tubing adventure on the Wisconsin River. This section of river is secluded, lined with mature oaks and maples, sandy river bottom and secluded beaches. Keep your eyes open as you have a chance to spot the majestic Eagles and numerous other animals along the way. The float averages 2 1/2 hours if you float straight through. If you stop to enjoy the river, sun, and sandy beaches, you could make a day of it if you choose to. Our tubes are custom made. They have a can holder and also quick links to keep your group together. For the little river rats, we have tubes with a bottom and a backrest. As required by law, we provide everyone with a life vest, but you are more than welcome to bring your own. Our family owned business would be happy to help you plan your next river tubing adventure with us.

My husband and I went by ourselves on our first time on the river...that was our first mistake. The Wisconsin River was fun until the last 15 minutes of our trip. The current got so fast we couldn't control keeping away from the shoreline of trees. At one point, because of the current, we got wedged into a set of trees and were saved by a boat with two fishermen that pulled us out. As we continued around the very next corner, we could see the point at which we were suppose to get out for our ride back. We were about a half hour after time they said they would be there, but nobody was there yet to help us. We got caught in a current that started to pull us away from the landing spot. We were told there were some spots that were only 4ft, but could drop off to over 6ft. We took our chances and dismounted our tubes and stood on the ground fighting the current. We slowly made our way toward shore and the land dropped off and we knew we were in trouble because the current was forcing us away...then, by God's grace, my husband found another shallow area and caught us both. WE MADE IT TO LAND! My suggestion is bring your own body life jacket that straps across your waist. The ones they provide only go over your head...my husband's went sideways when we were in trouble and mine went up in my face, cause more issues then what we already had. We will never do this again!
