Water tubing in NYC is limited. But we will take you to the best tubing place nearby for a thrilling tubing experience. Just meet your bus and guides at one of our two pickup locations in Manhattan and we promise you a refreshing and leisure day.

Delaware River Tubing

Delaware River Tubing is a renowned tubing outfitter that offers one of the best river tubing experiences on the Delaware River. It provides a comprehensive tubing adventure that combines thrilling river currents, beautiful scenery, and exceptional customer service. It is a perfect place for you to relax, unwind, and have fun with your friends or family.

After a short drive from Manhattan, you’ll enjoy an up to 2-hour tubing experience (depending on river speed) down the beautiful Delaware River. Float down the scenic Delaware River on an inflatable tube, immersing yourself in nature and soaking up the sun.

And since we know you’re going to ask, yes, coolers are permitted on the water. They are also available for purchase upon arrival at the tubing outfitter.

Visit An Award-winning Brewery

Once our River Tubing trip is over, enjoy a riverside lunch right at the river for some good summer vibes. After that, we will take you to the award-winning The Drowned Lands Brewery to enjoy a free 12oz beer.

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. What are you waiting for?

NY River Tubing

Our party of 4 had a great experience on our Sourced river tubing trip! Overall we felt our team leaders did a great job of coordinating a trip of a large group (~50 individuals) while navigating some obstacles along the way. - The bus ride to/from the event was clean, comfortable, and safe - The tubing experience itself was a great way to spend a summer day! - The post-tubing cookout while, nothing extravagant, was great. Burgers, dogs and drinks, what more do you need? Some FYIs for those who may not be super flexible... - It's best to bring whatever you need and not rely on the store for purchasing it. Things like water shoes or floating coolers are not guaranteed to be in stock. Ice was available for purchase. - You will 100% want a floating cooler! - Whatever you decide to bring on the river will get wet, so choose wisely! - It was a long 12-hour day as the river ran slow, so the tubing itself took about 4 hours. We didn't mind though, what's the hurry? - Expect to have to be patient. There were some delays with checking in with the river tubing company and then once you're checked in, you have to transfer form the Sourced coach bus, to yellow school buses (no AC) to the river's launch point. Again, overall great time and experience. Would recommend!

River Tubing Trip

Overall the trip was great and we enjoyed our time on the river however, the end wasn’t great. The trip was advertised with a bbq at a restaurant with the option to purchase beers. Cedar Rapids was not open to the public and there was no operating bar. We were given water or soda. The place felt deserted with the exception of a couple people handing out hamburgers. While this isn’t the end of the world, we were really looking forward to relaxing over lunch with a cold beer as it mentioned when we booked the trip. This is my second trip with Sourced Adventures and they are mostly a great time but I always wish there were more details about the itinerary and communication up front about changes that weren’t expected.customer review photo

When should I arrive for my trip?

Guests should arrive 10 minutes prior to their bus departure time from NYC.

What should I bring?

Good Question! We would recommend bringing a water bottle, a rain jacket, a change of clothes, 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. We also do not allow any hard alcohol or alcohol above 6% on this trip.

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 usually purchase coolers onsite at the river. However, stock is not guaranteed and due to supply chain constraints sometimes inventory is not available. Please plan accordingly.

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

Anything else I should know?

Thanks for checking 🙂

  • Outside alcohol is not welcome at the restaurant (obviously)
  • This is a 21+ ONLY trip so please bring an ID
