What forms of payment do you accept?

What is the tubing season?
June 25, 2011 - September 5, 2011
What do I do when I first arrive at Kenzie’s?
You sign in at the registration desk, secure all your personal belongings in your car and then turn your key over to the attendant to place in a secure location. Proceed to the group photo location and have a photo of your group done. Then jump on the bus and be transported up river to where your tube awaits you. You then will sail back down to where your car is. It will take approximately 2-3 hours to reach your exit.
What can I do with my personal items while I am tubing?
We recommend locking your personal items in your car. We have a safe place for your keys after doing so. Never take your keys on the river with you as many people lose them. This makes for a costly call to a towing company.
Do I need to make a reservation?
We prefer reservations with larger groups but you can definitely just stop by as we have a large number of tubes.
How long does a typical sail take?
What should I bring with me?
River shoes are most important (shoes that have a back and will stay on your feet), sunscreen, any drinks and food you might want, and of course of life jacket!
Is there an age limit or height requirement for tubing?
There is no age limit or height requirement for tubing but we do not recommend tubing trips for infants.
Where do I park?
Kenzie’s parking lot. We then shuttle you up river in a bus. You sail back down to your car.
Do you have a picnic area available?
Yes, we do have a picnic area and a propane barbecue on site for your cooking pleasure but they are on a first come first serve basis.
Do you have restrooms and changing rooms?
Yes, restrooms and changing rooms are available.
How deep is the water?
It varies. Most of the river is fairly shallow but there are some parts that will be over your head.
Do you have to be able to swim?
Many non-swimmers enjoy tubing with us and do fine. The biggest danger for a non-swimmer is the fear of water. We require all non-swimmers and children to wear life jackets. It is advisable to bring your own as we have limited numbers and are utilized on a first come first basis.
Do you have a life guard on duty?
No, there is no life guard.
Can I bring my own personal floatation device?
Yes, we strongly recommend this.
Can you get out of the river?
Yes, you can get out of the water but please remember property along the Little Sou’west River is private property. Try to stop along areas where there are no houses or lodges.
Are there bathrooms along the river?
No. You should make sure to use Kenzie’s Tubing facilities before getting in the river.
What should I wear?
Shorts and T-shirts or swimsuit, securely fitting shoes, Flip Flops or sandals are not recommended unless secured to your feet.
Will I get wet?
What happens if it rains?
We go tubing rain or shine unless it is thundering and lightning. However a cold rainy day is not as enjoyable as a sunny day.
Can I bring my kids?
We are a very “kid” friendly company. We encourage all children to wear lifejackets on the river at all times and must be under supervision of an adult. We do have tubes with bottoms for young children or any individual that prefers this type.
Is there a weight limit?
There is no weight restriction but keep in mind some places in the river are very shallow and physical exertion may be required. We have tubes designed for larger individuals for their comfort.
Do you need to be physically fit to go tubing?
Tubing is not considered to be strenuous by most people. It will involve some work on your end depending on the water level.
Can I take a picnic cooler?
You are welcome to take a picnic with you on the river. No styrofoam coolers, only plastic. You can rent an additional tube to transport your lunch. You can simply attach the coolers together.
Can I take alcohol?
We strongly advise no alcohol on the Little Sou’west River for obvious safety reasons. There are off road police that patrol the river and can issue fines to anyone with open alcohol. They also can issue a ticket for open alcohol on the tubing grounds.
Can we tie our tubes together?
Yes. We have tie straps available to connect tubes together. However, we do not recommend connecting more than two tubes due to safety concerns.
Can I bring a camera?
Yes, but remember unless it is waterproof it will get wet. We do have waterproof bags available if you wish to rent one. We also offer group photos that are taken before you go tubing. They can be viewed at the end of the day and can be purchased in a photo frame.
I have my own kayak/canoe and just need someone to pick me up and drive me back to my car. Do you offer this service?
We love putting people on the river! We are glad to offer shuttle service at the price of $15.00 per person.
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, dogs are welcome to tube. We have special covers that have a bottom, which will accommodate all small dogs.
I am pregnant. Is it safe to tube?
Tubing is like that of any other physical activity. If you feel comfortable and have no health issues, you would be more than able to do so. You would have to decide as to the level of activity you can engage in.
How do I know where to go/where to take out once I am on the water?
You will float down river without a worry. You will see our exit sign at the end of the float. One of our professional Kenzie’s Tubing staff will also be close by so you know you are in the right spot!

Should you decide that once is not enough...we will transport you up river for a second sail at half price...providing you are in the river by 5:00 pm.
