Choose from Four Options

  • $29 for a one-hour tubing trip for four (a $60 value)
  • $39 for a three-hour tubing trip for four (an $80 value)
  • $59 for a one-hour tubing trip for eight (a $120 value)
  • $69 for a three-hour tubing trip for eight (a $160 value)

The one-hour trip is well suited for leisurely riders and families as guests float by the Congaree River bridge ruins, sunken SS Columbia, and other historic sites.

The three-hour tubing experience beckons more technically sound adventurists. During that trip, aquatic floaters fly along Class II rapids, tackle waves a foot tall, and also see historic sites and wildlife such as bald eagles. Additionally, guests get a chance to swim and take in excellent views of the historic Gervais Street Bridge.

Trips depart via free shuttle at 4 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Weekday trips are available by appointment, and can be scheduled by calling ahead.

Palmetto Outdoor Center

Palmetto Outdoor Center promotes the preservation of natural rivers and forests. Because awareness is the best way to maintain the environment and cultural heritage, Palmetto spreads knowledge of local gems with river trips and walking tours. These organized tours and vessels for rent allow amateur explorers to discover South Carolina's uncluttered riverbanks while learning about how they can be protected. Civil War walking tours illuminate the history of the region, and canoe and kayak rentals plunge into the tree-lined waterways of the Congaree, which flows through protected national parkland with the continent's largest old-growth floodplain forest.

My husband took 2 of our kids and 3 of their friends and they had a lot of fun. Said it's a great beginner tubing trip. They all liked that you could walk back up and do it over again.
