Heading to Arizona? Tubing Down the Salt River is an Absolute Must

If you’re planning a trip to the breathtaking Sonoran Desert, tubing down the Salt River is a must for your activity list. The Salt River Tubing company located in Mesa provides quick and easy access to this clear, sparkling river. In just a few minutes, you can rent a tube and map out your journey before relaxing the day away on a glistening mountain stream. www.saltrivertubing.com

Choose Your Route

When you arrive at the home base, you’ll be given a map of the river. There are different starting and ending points. Do you want your tubing experience to last two, three or five hours? You get to decide how far you want to drift. Are you up for the full adventure, or do you just want to have a quick picnic?

Soak in the Mountain Beauty

As you glide across the water, you’ll witness some awe-inspiring views. Salt River is part of Tonto National Forest, so expect to see plenty of wildlife. Wild horses and pigs frolic at the river’s edge, gorgeous birds fly above and vibrant fish whirl around below. You’ll also be surrounded by stunning red rock formations that lovingly hug this natural paradise.

Let Loose and Release Some Stress

During the weekend, Salt River becomes party central. Music is played a little louder, and tubers are a bit more boisterous and social. The weekend tubing experience can be as liberating as it is refreshing. If you love meeting new people and just having a blast, fill your cooler with some drinks and snacks, and float your worries away.

Gather Your Friends and Family

This is the perfect group activity because the rapids are mild. The smooth flow means you can stay close to your party for the entire journey. If you really want to make some amazing memories, plan your trip during one of Salt River Tubing’s special events, such as the Rockin’ Rodeo Roundup, Zero Litter Memorial Day Celebration or Hawaiian Hula.

For just $17 per person, you can enjoy a float-fest down one of the most scenic rivers in the Southwest. Tubing is available 7 days a week and begins at 9 a.m. Our hotel is less than an hour from the launch site, and the drive is easy and picturesque. We encourage all our guests to participate in the coolest, wettest and most exhilarating adventure Arizona has to offer.
