The Best River Tubing Adventure Near New York City

Get excited for summer River Tubing on the Delaware River! That’s right folks, our very popular river tubing & brewery tour is back for another season. After all, what could be better than spending a summer day floating down a river and visiting an award-winning brewery afterwards? Well, nothing.

Meet your bus and guide at one of our pickup locations and we’ll take care of the rest. After a short drive, you’ll enjoy a 2-hour river tubing experience (depending on river speed) down the beautiful Delaware River. And since we know you’re going to ask, yes coolers are permitted on the water and available for purchase upon arrival at the tubing outfitter.

Keep the Adventure Going with a Brewery Tour

Once the tubing is over, enjoy a quick picnic lunch before heading to one of our Award Winning Brewery Partners for some libations and good summer vibes. There, you can fill up some growlers and have a chance to relax over a pint, taking in the gorgeous scenery before heading back to the city. Not bad right?

So what are you waiting for? Seriously, the only thing that compares is our rafting trip. And our River Tubing trip includes a brewery visit. So grab a friend, significant other, roommate, co-worker, parent, acquaintance, or stranger off the street and join us for an epic day out of the city.

Book early to save! Prices go up as the bus fills up.

What should I bring?

Good Question! We would recommend bringing a water bottle, a rain jacket, a change of cloths, a towel, sunglasses, sunblock and water shoes (old sneakers will work for this too!).

Can I drink on the bus?

Nope! Alcohol is not permitted on the buses in the morning and must be stashed under the bus for the trip up to the river.

Are coolers permitted on the river?

While you are not allowed to drink on the bus in the morning (alcohol goes underneath the bus), coolers are permitted on the river. You can purchase coolers onsite at the river for $20.

Please note that glass bottles are not allowed on the water.

Anything else I should know?

Thanks for checking 🙂
