The dog days of summer have arrived. Stay cool by floating the day away on one of New York's beautiful rivers.

Black River

Spend a few hours floating, swimming, and just hanging with your family and friends through the beautiful Black River Canyon for the day. You're even encouraged to bring your own cooler. With the stunning scenery and deep water, this is a self-guided adventure you won’t want to miss.

Our “Tube Taxi” will shuttle you upstream, then enjoy a relaxing float with friends & family down the beautiful rock-walled Black River Canyon.

Ausable Chasm

Float through the Grand Canyon of the Adirondacks for the longest tubing trip in New York, on the oldest natural attraction in the United States.

Enjoy a day of adventures you won't find at any other single location in the Adirondacks at the Ausable Chasm. There's hiking, rock climbing, rappelling, and whitewater rafting for the adrenaline junkies or floating down the river for those just looking to relax. There's even a campground where you can spend the night and do it all again the next day.

Float tours are very popular so you're advised to arrive as early in the day as possible to avoid waiting. Reservations aren't available, so you may have to wait 30 minutes or more after 12 PM. Get details at Ausablechasm.com.

West Canada Creek

You can tube down the West Canada Creek, but you'll have to do it on your own this year. The West Canada Creek Tubing company isn't offering shuttles or tube rentals for the 2022 summer season. The company hopes to resume tubing operations next Spring when the new bus arrives.

If you have your own tubes and two cars, tubing down the West Canada Creek on your own is a piece of cake.
