Kick Back and Enjoy
ONE PASS. LESS HASSLE. MORE FUN!
Our tubing season pass offers you the opportunity to kick back to the max as you take advantage of tubing the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers in the Harpers Ferry area. Voted in the top 10 tubing rivers in the nation by USA Today’s Reader’s Choice, these rivers are worth coming back to again and again. If mellow water is more your style, the Shenandoah River trip, located six miles above Harpers Ferry, offers an easy float on a broad and beautiful stretch of river. If whitewater excitement is more your M O, then floating the Class II-III rapids right by Harpers Ferry, WV is for you! Whatever the case, these two trips will satisfy your relax-to-the-max needs every time.
In addition, our pass includes kayaking & canoeing from our Shenandoah mellow tubing site. AT NO EXTRA CHARGE you and yours have access to paddling over 10 models of kayaks and canoes (based on availability).

Frequently Asked Questions About Tubing Near Harpers Ferry
Here’s answers to our most frequently asked questions about tubing…
- Do we need any paperwork?
Yes. Before each activity a waiver must be filled out. A new waiver must be filled out and signed for each day and for each activity before participating. On-line waivers are available and the best route to go. Waivers can also be found under the waivers link on our website. A copy of the waiver can be mailed or faxed upon request.
Minors Anyone under the age of 18 is considered a minor and must have a parent guardian permission form filled out prior to each activity. The form is available online or can be faxed or mailed upon request.
- Where do I sit to stay dry?
Answer: The Bus. You are going to get wet!
- Where can I put my beer so it does not get lost?
Short answer: At home. Save the bottled fun for after the run.
- Will my tube trip be canceled in the event of rain?
Trips will run rain or shine. It is easy to reschedule your trip to another day in the event of rain if you prefer. For severe weather or anticipated high water, we may cancel your trip with no notice. If you have any questions, please call before coming.
- How do I get the tube to move where I want it to go?
Some people choose to just float. However, if you are about to run into an object or would like to help yourself along, you can use your arms as paddles!
- Can I wear flip flops?
Answer: Old sneakers or TEVA-type sandals that hook to your feet are the best! Flip flops fall off and no longer provide protection from sharp rocks or possible fish hooks.
- What else is important to know about clothing?
Dress appropriately for the weather. Normally bathing suit, and quick dry shorts are advisable. A windbreaker/rain jacket is also helpful to keep the rain out and to help prevent tube rash under your arms if you are an avid paddler!
- Since I am going to get wet, is it at least OK if I wear my warm sweats?
Answer: DO NOT WEAR COTTON ON COOLER DAYS. Cotton wicks the heat away from you when it gets wet and will cause you to become hypothermic. Wear wool, or PolyProtm — these will keep the heat in. Sweats are most definitely out, until after you get back to dry land.
- What about my physical & medical conditions?
Please inform your reservation specialist before arrival of any physical or medical conditions of anyone in your group. We highly recommend you consult a physician prior to participating in our activities if you have any concern. We advise all ASTHMATICS to bring their inhalers. We also advise that anyone who has allergies requiring an epi-pin to bring it in a waterproof container .Note: We reserve the right to refuse anyone participating in our adventure activities due to physical, mental or size limitations that, in our opinion, would expose that person or group to extreme risk.
- What are the age limits?
At River and Trail, we have required ages for each of our trips. Age limits vary depending on water levels and trip formats.
Shenandoah Tubing 5 yrs & 50 lbs
Potomac Whitewater Tubing 12 yrs & 90 lbs.
- Do I have to wear a life vest?
Answer: YES Always wear your life vest.
- Should I bring my camera?
Answer: Like you, your camera will get wet. Things also have a way of going into the river, never to be seen again. This being the case, we would suggest a sturdy strap and a waterproof camera. We do sell waterproof cameras in our outfitter store.
- Should I bring my cell phone, wallet or car keys on the water?
Answer: As stated above “Like you, your cell phone, wallet and keys will get wet. Things also have a way of going into the river, never to be seen again.” This being the case, we recommend that you DO NOT BRING THESE ITEMS ON THE TRIP WITH YOU unless you have a completely waterproof container. Our guided trips carry cell phones for emergency situations. We suggest that you lock your personal belongings in your car trunk and give your keys to our staff. Watches can be worn if they are waterproof. Keep in mind that River & Trail is not responsible for any of these items mentioned that are damaged by water if you choose to take them on the trip with you. We try to keep dry boxes and bags for cell phones stocked in our shop.
