Can you bring a cooler on the unguided flat water float?

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.
