Kids tubing should be solid swimmers and we require lifejackets. Adults should also wear a lifejacket in order to more easily and safely assist their children if they fall out of their tube.
Ages 12+ can go on the river without an adult. Ages 12 and under must be in the river with a parent or guardian. A waiver needs to be signed by all renters and a parent/guardian needs to sign for those under age 18. When you put safety first, kids are generally grinning after a day of tubing!
