Can you think of a more beautiful way to see the scenery of Mesa than to float down the beautiful Salt River rapids in beautiful Tonto National Forrest on your own inner tube.
Sounds pretty great to us!
Perfect for kids over 8 years old (there is a height limit too!), Salt River Tubing gets the family out into the great outdoors, enjoy the cool river waters on that hot summer day, and enjoying an iconic pasttime of the USA!
Your admission can include tube rental if you want, so you don't have to own your own, and you can float for as long or as little as you like!
When you arrive, the friendly team will provide you with a map of the float routes. These float times range from 2 hours, to 5 hours, so you can select the perfect trip for you.
Don't worry, you don't need to think about the return journey, because part of your admission includes a shuttle ride for one of the journeys too!
What's also great about Salt River Tubing, is that they encourage you to pick up litter, and for every full bag of trash you end up with at the end of the day, you'll receive a $7 discount coupon for your next visit. How cool is that!?
Are you excited to get out and enjoy the beautiful natural world of Mesa? Grab those inner tubes, because it's time to make a SPLASH!
$17 + tax per person or per tube, or $14 without tube rental. Includes shuttle service.
Same as adult
They have a fee of $30 per lost of stolen tube
They suggest you drink at least 2 bottles of water during your time on the river
