A quick 1.5 mile tubing trip at 3:15 or 4:00 PM only
Want a cool way to end an afternoon. A quick 1.5 mile tubing trip at 3:15 or 4:00 PM only. Try our “last call” tubing run. This tubing run is for one trip only and costs just $16 per person. This trip is only available for our 3:15 and 4 pm tube launch time only.
Enjoy our 1.5 tubing trip on the Upper James River. This relaxing float takes most groups roughly one to one and a half hours to complete depending on the water levels.
After a quick orientation we load our shuttle van for a quick 1.5 mile / 5 minute drive through the Town of Buchanan to our upstream launch site. At the launch site you will be issued a commercial grade river tube then will walk about 150 yards to the river and self launch and float back to our shop where your car is parked.
The first half of the trip has really good current with 5 easy class I rapids. The last half of the trip the river slows but still moves with out you having to paddle. Unlike many other outfitters we only supply high quality vinyl tubes (no truck tubes issued here) with carrying handles and seat bottoms that makes sure you don’t bump you bottom on your trip.
For those that need it, we provide tie ropes so tubes can be tied together perfect for groups with small children or groups that want to remain together while on the river.
PRICING INCLUDES: Rental of tube, life jackets, safety orientation, and all required shuttles.
MINIMUM AGE: For insurance and safety reasons our minim age is 6 years old. All customers should also know how to swim.
