Delaware River Tubing
People who’ve been to this area know that the Delaware River is ideal for tubing trips! So why does everyone love tubing on the Delaware River so much? Here are some of the best reasons you’ll enjoy the thrill of your tubing adventure.
1. Great Scenery
You’ll enjoy the incredible scenery on your tubing trip. Cliffs, ravines, wildflowers, and lush greenery await you. And if you’re lucky, you might spot some wildlife too. Maybe even some nesting eagles!
2. Cool, Clear Water
There’s nothing worse than tubing down a lukewarm, muddy river. So tube down the Delaware River instead! The cool, clear water provides respite and refreshment on a hot summer day. And the clear nature of the water allows you to see some of the river fish! Or, just your toes (which makes some people feel better!)
3. Consistent Current
No one likes to have to walk or swim their tube down the river. And the consistent current of the Delaware River means that you spend more time floating and no time paddling! No stagnant water here!
4. Great River Tubing Companies
We have several excellent river tubing companies nearby, and you can’t go wrong with any of them. They all offer the equipment you’ll need for a great afternoon, as well as transportation to and from the launch site and end site. Some also provide lunch, tubes in multiple sizes, floating coolers, and other helpful options. So be sure you take a look at: Delaware River Tubing, Bucks County River Country, Kittatinny tubing, and Indian Head Canoes.
5. Making Memories
How many times have you been with a group of friends or family and noticed that everyone is looking down at their phone? Well, that’s not likely to happen on a Delaware River tubing trip! You might have someone bring a waterproof case for selfies, but we doubt the whole group will be scrolling Facebook. That means you get to make some great memories, have some laughs, and truly enjoy the company of the people you love!
Cascade into The French Manor Inn & Spa
At the French Manor Inn, we offer an excellent place to rest after a day of fun. Our luxurious suites ensure that you rest comfortably. And the gourmet breakfast in the morning, along with our other excellent on-site dining options, will be a food experience to remember. We also have many other amenities, like an indoor salt water pool and hot tub, plus excellent spa services.
