For over 30 years the Town Tinker Tube Rental has provided whitewater equipment for adrenaline seekers to come and experience the intensity of the rapids on the Esopus Creek.
The Course begins up stream from the Town Tinker headquarters, in Phoenicia NY and contains the best and most extreme whitewater the Esopus has to offer. Depending on the water height an average tubing trip takes between 1 ½ to 2 hours. Transportation to the entry points is provided by the Town Tinker Tube Taxi.
The Esopus Creek is “ NOT ” a lazy river! It’s class II whitewater which means 1 to 3 foot waves and rapids. It is not a man made amusement park ride; there are real rocks and trees that can get in your way. Tubers must be physically capable of maneuvering around obstacles and have the ability to recover when tossed out of the tube.
The Town Tinker Staff is expertly trained to supply you with all of the equipment and gear needed. All tubers will receive safety instructions on how to properly use the equipment and what to look out for on the creek. There are no guides or attendants on the Esopus so tubing is at your own risk.
All Tubers must be over 12 year’s old and good swimmers. Life jackets are mandatory and helmets are strongly suggested. Helmets are required for ages 12-14.
Tubing at with the Town Tinker Tube Rental is fun, exciting, and a Summer Adventure you’re sure to remember.
