Great way to enjoy nature and stay cool from the warm temperatures. It was an experience to see wild horses drinking by the edge of river

Saw lots of wild horses and the water temperature and current was great. Staff was friendly however, exiting the river with the current was a little challenging. Be prepared for that and wear shoes, not flip flops!

Pay 17 dollars, pick up an old truck tube, load into an old school bus then launch onto the river with like minded loons. Just be aware if it’s runs fast you might catch a bush and lose expensive sunglasses - one of our group...More

Pack some waters! For the long float, 4 or 5 beers is enough along with your snacks. AN old sheet for covering your tube is great to have, but if you are active, you can just keep splashing water on it to avoid burning yourself....More

As others have written, this tubing experience can be enjoyable but one must be smart to ensure safety. Some go into this thinking it's a Disney ride without rules (or so they believe) and drink, toke, and joke. The river is no joke - it...More

Friendly staff. You will run into interesting people! Overall, very positive adventure. Tubes can flip!! The rapids are very fun but be extra careful! Our tube flipped and everything went in the water!

We had a great experience floating the Salt River. Salt River Tubing was efficient and although crowded by noon, arriving at opening was the best! However. I caution anyone that assumes that this is an easy float. For the most part it is, but Mother...More

It's tubing...on a river. Right. In principle brill, but read about the casualties. So - excellent at standing in line to pay and get your tube, excellent at being herded properly in line onto buses by 'helpers'. So bus drops you off at which ever...More

My friends rescued two young men drowning! They fell off their tubes and got caught in the whirl pool dragging them under! It took hours but they emergency rescue came! The one young man was air lifted to the hospital.

It’s hilarious at how inaccurate those three responses are. It’s $18 a tube which includes free bus ride to and from.

If you float past Exit 4, you may end up on the 10 o’clock news. If you survive, the walk back to the bus stop is a trek. The rapids down past 4 are seriously tough to bare so if you’re brave enough to do if, props to you... More
