My family and I love tubing.  There are some of our favorites listed below.

Tubing down the river is a summer must! Whether you need an excuse to cool down with friends or an exciting memory to make with the kids Tubing in Georgia is a safe and exciting summer adventure! From Blue Ridge to Macon, a number of outfitters rent tubes and offer transportation to the best stretches of water to enjoy.


In addition to wild whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Chattahoochee, Columbus Whitewater Express offers flatwater tubing during the summer months. Pair a trip down the river with ziplines, aerial obstacle course or bike rentals to explore the city.


Dahlonega outfitter Chestatee River Adventures outfits kayaking and tubing trips down the gorgeous Chestatee River. The Chestatee trip lasts about 30 minutes but includes several re-entry points along the trail back to the shop. For just $5, you can take as many turns as you like! Just outside Historic Dahlonega, Etowah River Campground offers riverside tent and RV camping in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Etowah River tubing trips, offered from May through Labor Day, are fun for the whole family!


Find fun with friends and family floating down the Coosawatee River! Coosawatee River Tubing provides the tubes, life vests and shuttle service so you can kick back and relax for a lazy trip!


Alpine Helen is home to some of the coolest and most popular tubing adventures in the state. Surround yourself with refreshing forest scenery on a lively tubing trip down the Chattahoochee River. The hours-long trips, offered by Cool River Tubing and Helen Tubing and Waterpark, even take a turn through the middle of Helen and have optional waterslides along the way!


Enjoy a cool, refreshing float on the gentle waters of the Toccoa River in McCaysville. Also known for guiding whitewater rafting trips, Rolling Thunder River Company offers 1.5-mile to 3-mile tubing trips. Tubing the Toccoa River is perfect for folks with small children or those who are nervous about whitewater rafting.


Take a relaxing trip down one of Georgia’s most beautiful rivers, the Ocmulgee River, in Macon with Ocmulgee Outdoor Expeditions. Whether you choose a quick float or a half-day adventure, shuttles make it easy to get back to your car after your time on the water.

Metro Atlanta

Shoot the Hooch in Roswell offers short trips and all-day excursions launching from several locations on the Chattahoochee River. Just minutes from downtown Atlanta, this summertime tradition is a must-have Atlanta adventure that explores our treasured Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. Shoot the Hooch also rents kayaks, canoes and paddleboards. Nantahala Outdoor Center offers the majesty of the Chattahoochee on a 3.5-hour tubing trip highlighting wildlife, colorful granite outcrops and scenic forest. Tube the gentle current from the Johnson Ferry outpost to Powers Island, or enjoy class I-II whitewater from the Powers Island outpost to Paces Mill!
