Water is one of the world's most versatile substances, providing flakes for snowball fights, steam for saunas, and ammo for popping the balloons on top of every clown's head. Get to know H2O with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $99 for a daylong river-tubing excursion and barbecue party with round-trip transportation from the Hoboken PATH station (a $245 value)
- $119 for a daylong river-tubing excursion and barbecue party with round-trip coach bus transportation from Manhattan (a $245 value)
The trip is held on Saturday, July 27.
After departing from Hoboken or Manhattan at 7:30 a.m., guests arrive at Skinners Falls by approximately 10 a.m. to delve into a day of riverside festivities, BYOB drinking games and tournaments, volleyball, and up to five hours of tubing down the Delaware River. Revelers grab colorful river tubes, and begin to gently drift past wooded shores while tying tubes together to form impromptu island nations of drinking and camaraderie. After tubing down the river, a bus takes participants back to the launch site where they can dance to beats spun by a live DJ, play volleyball, and dine on a buffet-style barbecue dinner. Participants depart for their return trip to Hoboken or Manhattan around 7:30 p.m.
During the event, staff members supply visitors with life jackets to ensure their safety. Though the weekend festivities focus on entertainment, participants can also donate or join in raffles to support the Long Reach Foundation, a nonprofit organization that provides support to Hurricane Sandy victims.
Boobs & Tubes
Swimsuit-clad revelers sip drinks as they bob down the river in a flotilla of colorful tubes. Smoke rises from barbecue pits and campfires as the sun's light dims, and laughter and cheers ring out from grass volleyball games as an electronic mix of music echoes off of tree trunks. Over the course of Boobs & Tubes' outdoor party weekends, campers party and occasionally apologize for waking grizzly-bear neighbors in and around Croton Dam in Michigan or Skinners Falls in New York. Campers who come for a full weekend take shelter in tents to immerse themselves in the freedom of the wilderness. Boobs & Tubes' main goal is to bring together groups of people for outdoor enjoyment while also proving modern amenities such as showers, breakfast buffets, and live DJ sets with colorful light shows, much in the fashion of Davey Crockett's most fancy dinner parties
