TUBING ON THE WEBER RIVER

DUE TO OVERCROWDED CONDITIONS ON THE HEN-TAG, AND THE CHALLENGING NATURE OF THIS REACH OF RIVER, WE ARE MOVING AWAY FROM OFFERING SELF-GUIDED TUBING ON THE WEBER RIVER. INSTEAD, WE ARE FOCUSING OUR EFFORTS ON OUR SPECIALTIES OF GUIDED RAFTING AND GUIDED KAYAK TRIPS. GO WITH A GUIDE AND LEARN TO PADDLE!

WHAT TO EXPECT ON A WEBER TUBING TRIP

Depending on water flow, and how much you stop, these trips usually last about two to three hours and cover eight miles with Class II and lower Class III rapids. As you pass through the beautiful Weber Canyon, take in loads of spectacular local scenery. Expect to encounter whitewater, rough-and-tumble bouldery sections, and strong currents that often push you towards obstacles such as tree branches and rocks. This can present intense challenges for some of our guests. For this reason, we recommend that tubers have some prior river skills or tubing experience.

If you have never tubed a Class II whitewater river, we recommend that you upgrade to the easier option of paddle rafting with a guide, or request to have your tubing group be accompanied by a guide who would be on a kayak or small raft.

TUBING SAFELY

This is a fast running river with drops and pools mixed with lengths of quiet water. The rapids are Class II+ and can be challenging. Tubing on the Weber River is appropriate for people with intermediate river skills or better. While tubing is a fun activity, we do have a minimum age restriction of 12 years old and over 5′ 2″ in height.

If your group or family has members younger or smaller than that, they will not be able to float independently. You must be able to reach over the tube with your arms and paddle with your hands to control your tube and stay in the middle of the river. If you are not sure about the whitewater tubing abilities of some people in your group, please ask us about other options. We suggest combining with a raft or at least having a guide along.

WHY TUBE WITH DESTINATION SPORTS?

Your safety and fun is our top priority! We use only top-quality, canvas covered, dual chamber whitewater rated river tubes that can withstand collisions with rocks and branches and will not pop during your trip, leaving you stranded by the freeway.

You will enjoy an extra 30 minutes of float time by starting your trip at our private riverside launch site that is upstream from the main public access area in Henefer. You will also enjoy a more private and personable experience, shorter wait times, and avoid being herded and shuttled on huge busses.

River tubing with friends is the quintessential summertime activity and nobody does it better than Destination Sports. Serving northern Utah tubing groups from Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Davis County, we offer a fun and wild adventure on the Class II whitewater rapids of the Weber River. Tubing the Hen-Tag stretch of the Weber River is a blast for thrill-seeking groups of any size, from two people to large groups of friends, family reunions, and full company staff parties with up to 50 guests.
