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:

  • towels
  • swimsuits
  • 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.
