In addition to Regular Tubes, we offer several Deluxe Tubes. Cadilac tubes are tubes with a fabric cover and a mesh seat. They provide better back support making your tube float more comfortable and the cover keeps the tube from getting hot from the sun. The Round Deluxe Tube is made from heavy duty PVC and has two air chambers. They also have a convenient beverage holder as well as two handles that make it easy to move your tube out of water. The Square Deluxe Tube has a complet water tight bottom for those who do not like sitting directly in the water.

Weekdays will require an 8AM departure.

The Landing offers a large selection of one man, white water, self bailing inflatable kayaks. These vessels are considered funyaks on Current River. They are sort of a cross between a canoe and tube. Because they are self bailing you have some water in the kayak which is a great way to cool off on a hot summer day. The kayaks are very maneuverable and stable and offer a great floating experience. Kayaks can be put in at both Raft Yard and Chilton Creek and will float slightly faster than rafts and tubes due to their design.
The Landing offers a large selection of 6 man rafts which are great for families and groups of 6 or less that want to float together. Food and beverage coolers can easily be carried in the rafts. This is a great way for families and groups to be together as the rafts are safe and very easy to maneuver. Rafts can be put in at both Raft Yard and Waymeyer and will require approximately the same floating time as the tube trips.
