Our scenic float tours are an exciting and memorable experience for the entire family (30 lbs. and up).

Departing from the formidable Table Rock, your journey begins between the towering cliffs of the Grand Flume. You're guide will showcase stunning and unusual rock formations such as the Sentry Box and Broken Needle before navigating through the rapids and around the Whirlpool Basin.  The tour concludes with a picturesque glide to the landing area while knowledgable guides dicuss our unique history.

Following the float tour guests have several options:  
1) Explore the winding Rim Trail for true birds-eye views of the chasm
2) Meander through two smaller "dry" chasms on the Dry Chasm Trails.
3) Hop aboard one of our trolleys for a quick return to the Welcome Center.

raft or tube as many times as you like with our discounted 2nd trip option. After guests have taken either the raft or tube at the regular rate you are invited to go again and again for just $5 per trip - that's less  than 50% off each additional adult trip! Perfect for guests who want to raft and then tube!

Avoid the crowds: The float tours are very popular midday during summer.  We advise our guests who have limited time to arrive as early in the day as possible to avoid a possible wait for the optional float tour portion of your visit.  Due to  the fact that reservations are not possible, wait times of up to an hour can occur between 12PM and 2pm.  We feel the experience is worth the wait, but for guests who don't have ample time, arriving early is strongly advised.
