This weekend is before Cinco De Mayo!!!

Gather your tubes, Cervas and Tequila and Agua for a fun trip down the river. We meet at 10am sharp!!! Please be prepared to go at that time.

Please read the stuff below... SAFETY TIPS
Put More Fun in Your Tubing Adventure!
CHILDREN MUST BE AT LEAST EIGHT (8) YEARS or OLDER AND 4 FEET TALL for TUBE RENTAL & SHUTTLE BUS SERVICE at S.R.T.R. CHILDREN must be at least eight (8) years or older AND 4 feet tall for tube rental & shuttle bus service at SRTR. If a child does not meet BOTH of these requirements, SRTR does not rent tubes or provide transportation to ANYONE in the group. NO EXCEPTIONS ARE PERMITTED TO THIS POLICY! LIFE VESTS are recommended for Children, ALL NON-SWIMMERS, inexperienced swimmers and ANY swimmer who questions whether He/She needs a life vest! ALCOHOL, DRUGS, and the Salt River DO NOT MIX! Play it safe…Don’t Do It! Have a great time responsibly and appoint a designated driver before your tubing adventure. GLASS CONTAINERS are NOT ALLOWED at Salt River Tubing or the Lower Salt River Recreational Area. Ice chests/coolers will be checked for glass containers. It is against the law to use glass containers at the Salt River and glass containers will be confiscated! DRINK PLENTY OF WATER while tubing. Drink at least 1-2 bottles of water per hour while floating to help prevent dehydration. TENNIS SHOES or other protective footwear are needed to protect against cuts, scrapes, and bruises while walking to/from the Salt River’s entry and exit points. Shoes will help protect your feet from the River’s rocky bottom. SUNBLOCK lotion should be applied BEFORE and DURING your floating trip. Minimum 30 SPF. WEAR a CAP, HAT or VISOR while tubing. It will help shield your face and head from the rays of the sun. TYING the TUBES together is NOT recommended. STYROFOAM COOLERS are NOT recommended for tubing on the Salt River. LOCK YOUR VEHICLE. Do not leave valuables in your vehicle. DRIVE ONLY on paved highways or on posted Forest Service roads. DO NOT LITTER! “Stash it and Bag it” in litter bags while tubing. Dump all trash in designated receptacles at Bus Stops. Join Tonto National Forest and Salt River Tubing in being a “Salt River Heroes = Litter Zero”! Help keep Salt River clean and beautiful!

    If I click on the address, Google map puts in the middle of nowhere. Is the address correct or is my Google map screwed up?

    Additional tip: Bring a bed sheet to tie around your tube, they get EXTREMELY HOT so the sheet helps - see you all on the river tomorrow!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
