More information about Riverside Canoe:
Children under the age of 3 are not allowed to go tubing. Children ages 3 to 5 may need to sit with an adult. All children under 12 will be required to wear a life jacket. Protective footwear is required in the river. An old pair of sneakers will work, but water shoes are the best option. Water shoes are available for purchase at Riverside Canoe. Sandals or flip-flops do not work well and will most likely get lost. Dogs are not allowed on tubing trips. We recommend that you bring extra dry clothes, a towel and suncreen.
