This was our second white water rafting trip with River Riders, and both times impressed us with their strong organization and staff. Everyone was cheerful and helpful, and guides really know the river. Hope to return soon.

Yes. No glass. There are signs about no alcohol but they do not enforce it. Some people tie a small cooler to their tube, or you can rent a cooler float. Walmart sells them for about $5. Hope that helps!

As the other respondents said, I don't think so. Even if you could it would be really difficult to bring it to and from the river on the bus since all of the other tubes are carried on a huge trailer behind.
