Join us for a fun filled day of tubing down the Potomac River and enjoy a delicious lunch after a long day under the sun! Your trip will involve paddling in and around obstacles, through shallow areas, flat water and white water rapids. Rocks create white water, therefore you should expect to maneuver around rocks during your trip. This is the perfect Social Distance activity!

Cost: $45 per person (includes single tube, life vest, unlimited tubing & private picnic area to relax and cookout after tubing-food is not included)
