Salt River Tubing open seven days a week

Posted

Salt River Tubing is open on the Lower Salt River seven days a week Saturday, April 27, through Monday, Sept. 2, weather and water-flow conditions permitting.

Note: Beginning Friday, Sept. 6, it is open Friday-Sunday through Sept. 29, according to https://www.saltrivertubing.com/river-tubing.

Salt River Tubing is seven minutes from Loop 202 East on North Power Road in Mesa. Salt River Tubing operates under permit of the USDA Forest Service in Tonto National Forest.

Salt River Tubing is open at 8 a.m. Saturday and Sunday and 9 a.m. Monday-Friday and last tube rental is 2 p.m. The cost is $25 per person or tube, which includes tube rental, a shuttle bus ride to and from the parking lot, and parking. The cost for a shuttle pass for a customer bringing their own tube is $20.

A tubing trip down the Salt River in Arizona is a fun and relaxing way to spend a summer day. The Salt River is a gentle, meandering waterway that winds its way through the scenic Tonto National Forest. The water is usually cool and clear, providing a refreshing respite from the hot desert sun, according to a release.

The Salt River is one of the most popular spots for tubing in Arizona, so you’ll be floating alongside other groups of tubers. The scenery along the river is beautiful, with towering saguaro cacti, lush greenery, and the occasional glimpse of wildlife. After a few hours of floating, you’ll arrive at the take-out point, where you will return your tubes and have the time to enjoy a much deserved lunch or snack before heading back home, the release states.

Important information:

  • Last tube rental: 2 p.m.;
  • All guests must be 8 and older and 4 feet tall or taller;
  • Glassware is prohibited by law. Coolers will be inspected before rafting.
  • All drinks must be in plastic or cans; and
  • Military/first-responder discount is only available for in-person rentals.
