Blackwater River Tubing

about 2 years ago
Great time - very relaxing

Fun for the family!

about 2 years ago
Our family had a blast on our float trip down the black water river. It was relaxing and peaceful. We took our time, stopped at a couple of the beaches- having lunch at one of them. It took us about 3 hours. We spent a week staying on the beach in destin and this float trip was the highlight for our kids- who are 11 and 13. We will be back the next time we are at the beach!

From the operator at Tripshock to the employees at Blackwater Canoes rental, everyone was so pleasant, helpful, courteous and so hospitable. I recommend this to everyone. Thumbs up!!????

Tubing trip

Water was high so had to go on the alternate river which was a little too long of a float. Tubes were good condition but cooler tube had very limited bottom in it. Staff were very polite and professional.

Not really what we expected

about 12 months ago
This really isn’t for a young family. The river current was strong and we were constantly working to keep ourselves out of the brush and downed trees along the bank. Mix that will college kids everywhere doing what they do, and it’s not a relaxing family time. Also online it says that if you rent 4 tubes you get the cooler tube free, I was charged $9 for my cooler tube. And after parking and unloading our stuff to sign a paper and be told we needed to drive further down to the parking lot and having to load our stuff back up, then waiting for the bus, then after the float you hike back up to another area where the bus picks you up we were pretty beat. Also the sign that says “beware of alligators, they have attacked people” is conveniently located at the end of the float Just saying

I brought my 3 daughters and a friend for a day of tubing. The river is beautiful with lots of places to stop and enjoy the sand and have a lunch break.

Great Time with Kids

We rented the Kayakes. Water is calm. Beaches along the way for rest stops. Great for beginners since it was my first time on a Kayake and my partner was a 5 year old! Myself, my 14 and 5 year old and 59 year old Aunt had an awesome time! Great family adventure.

Two Tubing Seniors Had a Ball

about 2 years ago
Travelling upriver seatbelted on the back of a truck through the Blackwater State Park was exhilerating. Once we set off drifting on our respective tubes downstream on Blackwater River, we discovered a Florida wilderness few are aware exists. The river scenery was splendid. The sugar white sandy beaches/shores were lovely for intermittant stops and a picnic. It was a perfect afternoon in every respect!

River was nice. all sand just the way it says. The river wasn't flowing as much as we thought it would be. So there was a lot of paddling on the tubes.

Horrible experience

Everything was so unorganized and the floats were disgusting.

Good Times

Awesome experience, had a great time kayaking and bonding with my son. You get a slight workout paddling the kayak or you can just let the current take you. Make sure you stop by some of the beaches to snack crack a beer open and enjoy the water.
