If you’re interested in a full-day tubing adventure, our white water/flat water combination full-day trip is for you. Alternatively, if you have a family with young kids or simply want a completely relaxing day, you can opt for the flat water experience all day.

The day begins with white water tubing on the Potomac River, followed by a picnic lunch that you can prepare yourself or enjoy food from Alstadts Ale House, which is conveniently located on the River Riders property. In the afternoon, you can participate in the Shenandoah River flat water tubing trip.

AdditionaL Info

What are the differences between the different types of tubes available?

The Standard Tube is made of heavy gauge vinyl fabric specifically designed for river use. It provides durability and comfort that surpasses that of a vinyl “swimming pool” tube and basic black rubber tubes, plus it includes handles.

The Deluxe vinyl tube is specifically made for river use. It is constructed with a heavy gauge vinyl fabric to ensure both comfort and durability. The tube is equipped with handles, a seat bottom, a cup holder, and a backrest. Renting the Deluxe tube will cost an additional $5 compared to the standard vinyl tube.

The Tube Tracker is designed for river use and is made of durable vinyl fabric. It is more comfortable than the standard tube and includes a light-duty paddle. It features handles, a seat bottom, a cup holder, and a backrest. The rental cost for the Tube Tracker is $5 higher than the deluxe vinyl tube and $10 higher than the standard tube.

Don’t forget to add your floating cooler (a tube that holds everything in the center of the tube) or your cooler tube (you bring your cooler that you sit on top of the tube) onto your reservation!

You can buy the floating cooler for $24.99.

You can rent a cooler tube for $19.
