Cahaba River Tubing
The Cahaba River is the longest free flowing river in Alabama and flows for 194 miles before it joins with the Alabama River. It is one of the most biodiverse rivers in the world, which provides for excellent fishing opportunities, should you chose to do so, before or after your tubing trip. This diversity also provides much of the Cahaba Rivers scenic and recreational value to canoes, kayaks, and tubes. The Cahaba River holds a special place in the hearts of many who live in Alabama, so be sure to leave the river as you found it so anyone in the future can enjoy the same experience as you.
Styx River Tubing
The Styx River flows for 41 miles through Alabama and has many sandbars allowing you to exit your tube and stretch your legs or have a picnic. Naturally, with sandbars, the river bottom is mostly sand, the water is clear, and the current is slow. These combine to make an excellent opportunity to experience river tubing in Alabama. Contact one of the outfitters below to get started and if you’re interested in extending your trip, there are plenty of campgrounds that would be happy to accommodate you.
