We went tubing with our family, ages 5-55. Everyone had a great time relaxing and hollering down the "rapids".

Parked got our tubes. Then a bus took us up and dropped us off. We floated down about 2 hours. Arrived at our car are our lunch and then tubed down another 45 minutes. It was a great Saturday for us. Would totally do again.

They must be 5 years old and at least 42" tall. I would highly suggest a life jacket and an experienced tuber for each child.

Diana is correct. For transport with Green River Cove, you must rent their tubes. It's $9 for half trip. i believe it's $15 for the entire trip
