The flow of the Virgin River continues to impress guests and provide a hoot of a time! The river has slowed down a bit since last week and is now accessible for guests ages 6+ AND 80 lbs. and up, enabling many more families to engage the river adventure. Do not be fooled by the slowing river, however, as it still not a “lazy river” and features several stretches of attention-demanding rapids. The lowering water level has been revealing more and more obstacles, including rocks, roots, and trees, so navigating the winding flow requires keen judgement, awareness, and mobility. Don’t be discouraged, though: the ride is thoroughly enjoyable and absolutely perfect for a cool down during these scorching July days!

Since we float the river each morning, we know the river conditions with ridiculous detail. The float is currently lasts an enjoyable hour and fifteen minutes to complete, give or take 15 minutes for a splash fest or sun/shade break. We do trash clean-up every morning, so the river banks are more or less pristine; please help us keep it this way be packing out all your trash and keeping your flip-flops at home (they commonly fall off and litter the river).

With temperatures on the rise and high season in full swing, tubing reservations often fill up quickly, often during the evenings for the next day. To secure tubing fun for your group, call, email, or stop by the store to get your name down. We currently offer seven tubing runs daily, at the following times:

10:00     11:00     12:15     1:15     2:30     3:30     4:45

To make a reservation, just let us know the size of your group, the time you’d like to tube, and make sure everyone in your party is at least 80 lbs. See you on the river!
