Rainbow River Tubing
There’s no better or more relaxing way to experience Florida’s wondrous waterways than by tubing! Floats are very easy to use – simply lay back and float away!
The pure, spring-fed Rainbow River flows through Ocala/Marion County and is a perfect place to try tubing. The smooth, slow current effortlessly pushes you downstream (at approximately 1 mile per hour), giving you plenty of time to enjoy the area’s breathtaking natural surroundings while viewing Florida’s colorful wildlife in the water and on the shore.
If you’re planning a Rainbow River tubing adventure, remember to pack the following items:
- sunscreen (a must!)
- sunglasses to protect your eyes from the glare
- goggles (perfect for spotting fish and turtles hidden in the swaying eelgrass)
- reusable containers for any food or drink
Note that disposable containers are prohibited on the Rainbow River, and having them is a finable offense. You’ll also be asked to sign a safety waiver and release of liability agreement prior to renting and using tubes.
