Stay cool this summer by floating the day away on one of New York's beautiful rivers. There are several options to choose from, including one lazy tubing trip that takes you to a private island.

West Canada Creek

Take in the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains as you float down the West Canada Creek. Spend anywhere from an hour to the entire day on the water. Shuttles are provided to three different launch points along the river.

We are committed to offering a fun and safe experience while also preserving the river’s natural beauty.

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.

Hudson River & Private Island

The Adirondack Adventure Center is expanding for the 15th season after owner Dane Morton purchased 165 acres of land along the beautiful Buttermilk section of the Hudson River. It will be used as a private access point for the Lazy River Tubing trips that include a stop at the private island.

Daily trips will go from 4 every 90 minutes to 6 every 60 minutes. And there will be a private access point to the river to allow everyone to get on the water faster.
