Please note: We can only shuttle 14 at a time and will run shuttles until the whole group is at the put in. This is an unguided outing. The minimum age we will shuttle is 6 and youth 6-12 years old are required to wear a personal flotation device. All participants must know how to swim and manage themselves on a body of moving water. Footwear is required, flip flops not recommended. We do not offer tandem tubes, cooler tubes, rafts, or inflatable kayaks. We strongly discourage participants from tying or binding together tubes. (While that practice may be safe on some rivers, there is a high likelihood of running aground and potential entanglement hazard on the low, rocky Roanoke River.) 

We rent high quality river tubes for floating on the Roanoke River. Enjoy a slice of nature right in the middle of the city! lThe Roanoke is a relaxing river, with a few mild rapids to keep things interesting. Float time is dependent upon water levels and other factors. Typically, it takes 2 to 3 hours to float back to the shop. We'll show you the takeout and drive you up to the put-in. Price includes tube (plus cover & seat) along with transportation to the put-in. Be sure to bring your own dry bag or plan to purchase one from the shop if you will need that capability.
