Do I need a reservation?
We do not require reservations, but we highly recommend it, especially on our busy days (weekends). Our guests with reservations are our top priority. Walk-ins are first come first serve. We will try our best to fit our walk-ins in between our reservations.
What do I get for the price?
Check out our pricing tab on our website for more details. We have many packages and options for our floating gear. You will receive your tube or kayak, shuttle, life jacket, and any additional services that are needed to make your experience exceptional. We do have free parking at our site for convenience for our tubers.
What if I want to bring my own tube?
You are more than welcome to bring your own flotation device. To blow it up, it is a $1.00 charge for a single-person tube. A shuttle with your 1 personal flotation device is $5.
Where do we check-in?
We ask you to check-in at 102 North Water St. Madison, NC. After checking in, we will direct you to our parking lot at the 704 river access location.
How does the trip work?
The process is so easy- just park at our 704 river access location and check-in. After check-in, you’ll receive your tube and/or additional gear. We’ll take you upstream to the starting point, at Lindsay Bridge access. You will receive additional instructions and begin your lazy river float. Along the way, you can stop to swim, wade, and hang out to enjoy all the Dan River has to offer (we want you to be on your own time). Your car will be waiting for you at the end of your trip.
What should I wear?
We encourage you to wear clothing that you are comfortable with getting wet. This would include swimsuits, shorts, etc. Footwear is not required but recommended. Come prepared with sunscreen and beverages for your 2-hour river floating trip.
Where can I leave my keys, shoes, etc.?
We encourage you to leave as many items in your car during your trip. We do sell dry bags on site for your personal items (phone and keys).
How deep is the water?
For most of your float, the river is an average of 2-3 feet. Many will be able to stand on the bottom with no issues. In various spots of the river, it can reach up to 4-5 feet.
What is the youngest age allowed?
5 years old is the youngest age we can allow.
What is your weather policy?
Our staff keeps a close eye on the hourly radar throughout our days of tubing. If it appears to be a high chance of severe weather, we will close and contact any reservations.
How long is the trip?
We average between 2 and 2 1/2 hours long.
What are your hours?
Our hours are 7 days a week. We open our office up at 9:30 am and our first-morning time slot for reservations is 10 am. Our last shuttle of the day runs at 4:30 pm. We close at 7:00 pm when all our tubers have come off the river. Our office hours are from 9:30 am- 4:30 pm, for any questions call us at (336) 548-2789.
Can I bring my dog?
Unfortunately, we do not allow dogs on our flotation devices. We are sorry for any inconvenience.
