Here are our 5 Reasons to Enjoy the thrill of Delaware River Tubing
Time with Family and Friends
Finding an outing that a whole group will enjoy can sometimes be a challenge. Delaware River tubing is an ideal outing because there is no skill level required. Kids as small as 4 years old can tube down the river. While you float, you are creating lasting memories that you will want to recreate year after year.
Part of tubing is taking in all the scenic views. Along the way during your tubing adventure, you’ll see cliffs, ravines, wildflowers, and lush trees. Be sure to bring your camera in a waterproof container so you can snap some pictures of what you see!
Lunch and a Swim in the River
The cool, clear water of the Delaware River is perfect for swimming. Find a spot to break along the way and enjoy a picnic lunch and a refreshing swim. And don’t forget to pack water for everyone. When temperatures get hot, you’ll want everyone to stay hydrated.
Class I Rapids
One of the great things about tubing is that the water does all the work for you. The Delaware River Class I rapids mean that you will have a consistent current pulling your tube along. No need to put any effort in on this trip. Just lay back and float.
Great River Tubing Companies
We have several excellent river tubing companies nearby for your convenience. Each place offers not only the equipment needed for tubing but also transportation to and from your beginning and ending location.

Return to The French Manor Inn & Spa for a Most Relaxing Stay
Summertime in the Pocono Mountains is absolutely gorgeous. It’s actually one of our favorite times of the year. The trees are lush and provide much-needed shade from the hot summer temperatures. Our beautiful Inn rests on Huckleberry Mountain and opens up to amazing scenic views. We are home to 19 guest rooms with 6 different styles.
