Too often we do too much on vacation or get away's. Floating down the shallow river of the Chattahoochee MAKE you slow down and enjoy the ride. Great for family fun and children that aren't too young. Just sit down in your tube and allow...More

Wonderful experience. We brought the dogs and had a lot of fun. Relaxing in some spots but the a little faster in other spots. Very inexpensive we went in October so the water was a little chilly but definitely worth it. Can't wait to go...More

We did this with our 7 year old daughter and my 13 year old niece! We had a blast only wish we did the longer ride down the river! Get the stick for five!! It is worth it and helps!!

Although the river was a bit low in spots we had a great time floating down it. Get the push stick! It comes in handy when trying to steer around the rocks in the creek! Needless to say, we got soaked.

We really enjoyed tubing. The only thing is that I wish the tubes were a bit much spacious for the larger clientele. Nevertheless we made it work and had a blast. The price was definitely right. For 2 adults and 1 child we paid $15....More

We love cool river tubing. You sometimes have to take the shorter float because of river levels but both are beautiful and relaxing. The facilities are great and buses are constantly running so you do not have to wait long to get on the river....More

Labor Day weekend. The bus ride to the launch is not for the faint-of-heart! Opted for the one-hour float. Launching into the river is a short easy walk down the ramp and into the river. Some fast water and rapids pepper the slow floating through...More

Helpful staff answered all our questions and helped us out of the river at the end. They have limited shower facilities but lots of changing rooms. During peak hours the place is packed and waits may be long for the bus.

Sorry, I do not know. I would suggest calling them next late May. I don't believe they open until Memorial Day. The depth of the water has a lot to do with it too.

We did the lower. The water last week was higher and flowing faster, of course. This week it's lower, but in doing the lower he should not have too many problems. Hope you'll have a good time. Our kids and grands always... More
