  • This our second float down the Salt River. The first was 9 years ago with the same Arizona friends. The scenery is amazing. Don't forget to turn around and look behind you, too. We enjoyed floating...  more »

  • Of course this is awesome! Why even look at the reviews. This place supplies cheap transportation to and from the drop of and pick up points along with durable tubes that will not pop. The thing to remember for first timers is to bring a sheet or large towel. You want to cover the entire tube with it. That thing gets hot in the Phoenix sun! You will be uncomfortable the whole time if you forget to bring it. Get an extra tube for your cooler as well. They have a cooler tube but it’s smaller so make sure your cooler fits in it before you pay. If it doesn’t get a regular size tube (I always do). A pair of water socks are also really helpful. There are a lot of rocks when you beach midway and when you exit. Your feet really hurt if you don’t have them.
  • Awesome.. Started at the top, took about 4 hrs to tube the river but was so relaxing. The water temperature was perfect. We went that Saturday of Labor Day weekend. Everyone at the office was so helpful and knowledgeable. We brought our own tubs and rented a couple. The bus ride was quick and the drivers helped with everything. Will recommend and repeat the upcoming years.
