We now have the option to float the Choccolocco Creek or the Tallapoosa River, pending any water quality issues of the Choccolocco Creek at no extra cost. We are Alabama’s ‘Premier Tube Trip’ with many tubes in stock, a variety of rapids and a steady current to enjoy.  Nothing beats a refreshing tube trip on a pleasant day, with the soothing sounds of babbling water cascading alongside, with your friends.

 When you arrive – if your paperwork is in order and you are on the advance spreadsheet, what you rented will be ready for you. Put your life jacket on before going down the bank, and check for others around you, especially youngsters. Then place the tube around your bottom, holding it close, and plop backwards into the water.

If the weather turns bad while you are floating, and you get out of the water, we suggest you do not bunch together, stay away from tall trees and rocks, crouch down low and sit on your life jacket until you believe the danger has passed.  The weather service online has said lightning can travel ten miles.
