Whitewater Tubing Adventures

River tubing in downtown Pagosa Springs

Tubing season opens when the river drops to 300 cfs. Scroll down for links to the River Gauge and River Flow Forecast.

World-Class Tubing Fun!

Tubing on the San Juan River is the #1 fun thing to do in Pagosa Springs! We are Pagosa’s river tubing headquarters located downtown right across from the Hot Springs.

Pagosa’s River Tubing season starts when the river drops to 300 cfs.  This usually happens in late June or early July. If the river is above 300cfs, we will still be offering our guided rafting trips.

What the River Flow Means For Tubing

The River Gauge in Pagosa gives flow in CFS – cubic feet per seconds.  River levels can fluctuate daily based on snow melt and rainfall.

  • 30-90 = low: stay in the deepest current, lots of rocks to dodge
  • 90-180 = medium:  our favorite tubing level
  • 180-300 = high: rowdy fun for adventure seekers, you’re gonna flip!
  • above 300 = Rafting!
