Tubingon 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.
Pagosa’s River Tubing season has finally opened on July 23rd!
With afternoon showers in the forecast, get an early start and watch for changes in flows from rain in the mountains. We might see some some quick spikes in water flow if the monsoon pattern really kicks in.
This is the river tubing trip that Pagosa Springs is known for. Free shuttles and the very best river tubes. Make it a Combo with ourBike and Tube or Pedal and Paddle trips. Skip the line and save time by booking and filling out waivers online.
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.
