Need help finding a tubing river close to Tampa

Hi, Does anyone know of a good river to go tubing at near Tampa? I'm trying to find a quick getaway for tubing within an hour or so of Tampa.  It appears that Rainbow and Silver River would be good but they are too far and require you to be there too early or risk not getting parking. Who wants to tube at 8 in the morning??
I'm trying to find a place about an hour from Tampa and a place we can enjoy without having to get up at the butt-crack of dawn. Weeki Wachee River looked like an option but looks like they don't accept inflatables?  Just want a nice river that a good group of people (about 8-10 of us) can float down without having to drive two hours to get to.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
