Whitewater Tubing

Tubing on the San Juan River is the #1 fun thing to do in Pagosa Springs! We are Pagosa’s premier full-service river tubing headquarters, offering the best river tubes, gear rentals, and shuttled tubing trips right in downtown. Tubing season opens when the river drops below 400 cfs on the San Juan River Gauge.  Normally, river tubing starts in late June or early July but water levels can vary greatly depending on the weather and the amount of winter snow.

Please use caution and check river levels on the Pagosa Springs River Gauge before tubing in Pagosa.

What the River Flow Means:

The River Gauge in Pagosa gives flow in CFS – Cubic Feet per Second

  • 250-400 = really high … 40% flip ratio!  Lots of fun for thrill-seekers.
  • 150-250  = high … a little rowdy for small youngsters.
  • 90-150  = medium … perfect flow for just about everyone.
  • 30-90  = low … still floatable if you stay in the deepest current.
