It's like rafting, but in your own personal tube. And it's got cup holders.
If you’re not all about crazy adventures, but secretly you are, this may just be your trip. Inflatable tube and personal flotation device included.
WHAT TO EXPECT
River tubing is different based on how fast the water moves. Water flow is graded by Class 1 through Class 5.
All you have to remember is that the lower the Class, the slower the water.
Most days, all rivers flow at around Class 1 and 2, where you put your tube on the water and go with the flow. It requires some paddling to navigate. You get soaked only when you want.
But on select days, the local power authority opens up their dam to create Class 3 and above water conditions on sections of the river (that's the whitewater which is most commonly associated with rafting).
There can be several sections across a river that can be classified as Class 3 and above where you're guaranteed to get soaked when you go through them. However, in between these sections, a river goes back to Class 1 or 2 water.
In Class 3+ sections, you won't be able to navigate in your tube. You're just going with the flow. Personal flotation vests and helmets will be required.
That said, please check the date you want to go so you know whether your rafting trip will be Class 1 or 2 "Easy" or Class 3 and above "Whitewater".
