What You'll Get
Rivers were America’s primary mode of transportation until miles of road were built after Henry Ford almost drowned in an early Model T. Enjoy vintage travel at its finest with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of tube rentals for a four-hour float trip from Tiki Tubing, launching daily from their headquarters in Denham Springs. Tiki Tubing opens for the summer season on April 15; this Groupon expires on July 10.
Tiki Tubing liberates landlubbers from their stomping grounds for a lazy day of floating on the Amite River. After a six-minute jaunt in the Tiki shuttle, freshly minted mariners launch their inflatables for a four-hour drift past scenic vistas as they Huck Finn their way downstream toward their parked cars. The Amite River’s three-foot depth and slow current is safe for the entire family, and its abundant sandbars and riverbank beaches inspire ample opportunities for picnic stops, play time, and challenging boring siblings to sand-angel contests. Trips are designed with diverse standards of comfort in mind, and Tiki’s array of tubes for rent run the gamut from simple rings ($19) to the Cadillac-esque two-seater Tiki Tiger ($39) with padded backrests and business-class leg room.
Located a short drive up I-12 from New Orleans, Tiki Tubing's on-site store sells ice, waterproof disposable cameras, and a host of other outdoor sundries floaters may have forgotten, and rentable cooler floats tow sippables and snacks that never learned to swim. Stream swashbucklers can download the safety waiver before arriving.
