Salt River Tubing

Welcome to the ultimate guide for your Salt River tubing adventure! As summer heats up in Phoenix and Scottsdale, there’s no better way to cool off and have fun than floating down the Salt River. Whether you’re planning a half or full float, enjoying drinks with friends, or hoping to spot some wild horses, we’ve got you covered. And with Bigelow Limousine handling your transportation, your trip will be smooth and stress-free from start to finish.

The Salt River Tubing Experience

Tubing down the Salt River is a quintessential Arizona experience. It’s the perfect blend of relaxation, adventure, and natural beauty. You can choose between a half float, which takes about 2-3 hours, or a full float, lasting about 4-5 hours, depending on the river’s current. Floating is best enjoyed with friends and family, so bring your favorite drinks and snacks to share. Keep in mind that it’s important to keep the river clean, so be sure to pack out what you pack in. One of the highlights of the trip is the chance to see the famous wild horses of the Salt River. These majestic creatures often graze along the riverbanks, offering a unique and memorable experience.

Professional Transportation

Why hassle with driving and parking when you can travel in style and comfort? Taking a professional transportation service offers numerous advantages. First and foremost, it provides ease and convenience, eliminating the stress of driving through traffic or finding parking. Without the need to drive, you can start relaxing and having fun from the moment you step into one of our vehicles. Safety is also a major benefit; our professional drivers ensure you get to and from the river safely, allowing you to fully enjoy your day without any worries.

Due to distance, trips to Salt River tubing are not at the standard transfer rates – these are a little higher. However, because of the length of time spent tubing we do accommodate transfers – you are not required to do an hourly charter for the entire day.

Tips for a Memorable Salt River Tubing Experience

Packing the right essentials to tube the Salt River can make a big difference. Bring waterproof bags for your valuables, plenty of water, snacks, sunscreen, and a hat. Don’t forget a trash bag to keep the river clean. Arizona sun can be intense, so drink lots of water and reapply sunscreen every couple of hours. To capture memories, a waterproof camera or a secure phone case can help you document the fun moments without worrying about water damage!

Post-Float Relaxation: After a fun-filled day on the river, you’ll want to unwind and maybe grab a bite to eat. Phoenix is home to many great restaurants, offering a variety of cuisines to satisfy any craving. If you prefer to bring your own food, there are plenty of scenic spots along the river for a picnic. Book a transfer to your Salt River tubing and then opt for an hourly charter post-float. An hourly charter gives you the flexibility to make multiple stops – perfect for a dinner or dessert stop!
