Salt River Tubing

Tubing the Salt River is an iconic summer activity in Phoenix, Arizona. Leisurely float through the Tonto National Forest with your closest friends, letting the flowing water cool you off as the sun beats down, while sipping on drinks and sharing stories and laughs. Not only will you enjoy the beautiful scenery, but you may be lucky enough to catch wild horses in their natural habitat while you float along Arizona’s real-life lazy river. To ensure a seamless Salt River tubing experience, our professional transportation services can get your group to and from the float safely and in style.

Salt River Transportation Options

Due to distance, trips to Salt River 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.

Our most popular options are the 24 passenger Martini Party Bus and Mercedes Benz Sprinter Limo Party Bus. These accommodate up to 24 and 14 guests – with party lights, Bluetooth audio, and built-in bars, they’re perfect for a short ride to your adventure destination!

If you have a large group of 30+ passengers, our Tiffany Party Bus is a great choice! This vehicle has the most amenities, including party lights, Bluetooth audio, a dance pole, built-in bars, and storage room for additional coolers if needed.

We have plenty more options available – talk to our customer service team today to discuss which party bus best suits your tubing trip!

Please note: We will only drop off at designated Salt River Tubing locations – not additional drop offs.

About Salt River Tubing

When planning your Salt River tubing experience, you can book online or in person. Float times vary daily based on water flow, but you can book a half float (1.5 to 3 hours) or a full float (4 to 5 hours). When reserving for your large group with Salt River, ask how long they expect it to take – this will vary based on how fast the river is flowing that time of year. You can rent tubes for coolers, so plan to bring a cooler with plenty of water and any other drinks you’d like (glass is prohibited).

The Salt River tubing is set to open for the 2024 season on April 27th, 2024.

Tips for a Great Tubing Experience

Before you hit the water for your tubing day on the Salt River, here are a few pro tips to ensure smooth sailing:

  • Pack Wisely: Sunscreen, check. Water, check. Snacks, double-check.
  • Safety First: Bring water shoes and any other safety gear, and remember to stay hydrated.
  • Respect the Environment: Let’s keep Mother Nature happy, folks. Pick up after yourselves, and leave only footprints behind.
