White Water Tubing at Harper’s Ferry WV

WW Tubing, Harpers Ferry, WV  –  Sunday September 1,  Noon -4pm  

Come enjoy one of the last weekends left this summer for tubing down local rivers! We’ll hit the Potomac right above Harpers Ferry to go down the rapids (up to Class III).  It’ll take about two to three hours.

Make your reservations through River Riders (http://www.riverriders.com/activity/potomac-river-white-water-tubing):[masked]-7238. When you call, tell them you are part of the Meetup event for the 1:15 departure. River Riders is making a list so we can stay together as a group.

Price: $40/person. (Paying a few dollars more for the “Deluxe” tube is worth it).

What to Bring:

Comfortable clothing that will get very wet

Sun protection



Time: Noon Check-In (1:15 pm departure) - We need to arrive at least one hour before departure to check-in, sign waivers, get life vest , etc.

Where: River Riders, Inc., 408 Alstadts Hill Rd, Harpers Ferry, WV  25425

Directions:  http://www.riverriders.com/directions

In your RSVP please indicate if you need a ride. If you are coming by car and wouldn’t mind picking someone up at a nearby metro stop, please indicate how many people you can take. Hopefully we’ll have enough room for everyone. I can pick up three at the Braddock Road metro (yellow), located in Alexandria.

For those interested, we can head later to nearby downtown Frederick for dinner and beer.

This event is cross-posted with other Meetup groups.

      I'm good actually -- I was more curious for picking ppl up because I have space in my car but I can't get over there by 10:30am since I have an appt at 9am, but I will meet you all at the site at noon!!

    Great idea, Francois. I recently did the water tubing at Harper ferry and had an awesome time. Although, I disagree that the deluxe model is "worth" it. I used the "basic" water tube and never had any problems (very stable). I witnessed someone in a "deluxe" tube wipeout going over a class III rapid. It might have been user error, though.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
