George Washington's defiant and iconic pose in Washington Crossing the Delaware was actually second choice to a shot of our first president lying belly-up in an inner tube. Traverse the Delaware like a founding father with today’s Groupon to Delaware River Tubing, located in Frenchtown. Choose between the following options:

  • For $12, you get one weekday 6-mile tubing adventure and barbecue lunch (a $24 value).
  • For $17, you get one weekday 6-mile rafting adventure and barbecue lunch (a $34 value).

With 2,000 tubes and more than 100 rafts, Delaware River Tubing sends aqua-explorers through 6 miles of serene currents on a rafting or tubing excursion. Arriving guests can throw the car keys in the free key-check, select an inflated throne, and outfit children with lifejackets before piling into the shuttle. Rafts accommodate up to six guests, while inner tubes are available in single or double. Those looking to amp up the relaxation can choose Delaware River Tubing's new back-rest-laden lazy boy tubes for an additional $5 fee. Once at the water’s edge, the swimsuit clad slide their tube or raft onto the gentle waves and meander atop the water for three to four hours.

Halfway through the river expedition, floaters can abandon the lull of buoyancy for the allure mid-river barbecued meats by stopping at The Famous River Hot Dog Man for a lunch composed of a beverage, snack, and the choice of either one cheeseburger or two hog dogs. Satisfactorily stuffed, aqueous adventurers hop back into the typically 2- to 4-foot water, traversing minor rapids before taking a shuttle back home.

Delaware River Rapids provides a checklist of desired accouterments to make the excursion as easy as possible. For forgotten sun lotion, a waterproof camera, or flock of jumbo-sized rubber duckies, rafters and tubers can load up at Delaware River Rapids' store.

Delaware River Tubing

Delaware River Tubing launches tubes, rafts, and kayaks on five- to six-mile trips down scenic waterways just north of where George Washington historically crossed the Delaware River. Shuttles ferry groups to launch points, where watercraft journeys begin along the wide river. In addition to renting vessels, Delaware River Tubing's crew leads guided kayak tours that can highlight local wildlife and tackle class one rapids like a mall cop tackling a gummy-bear thief.

During river adventures, scents of barbecue waft across the water from the aptly named Famous River Hotdog Man. The riverside eatery, founded in 1987, partners with Delaware River Tubing to give each customer a hot meal, which they can devour at picnic tables in the water.

The staff was friendly and very helpful.

This was my first time and I enjoyed myself very much.
Yira S. · September 12, 2016
This is one of the best tubing experience in calm river water with class I rapid. The program was thoughtfully created and provides a 4hr engagement for the whole family. I would recommend to my friends from the tristate - NJ, NY, PA to avail it themselves next summer when they reopen on June.
