Clear Creek Whitewater Tubing

Adventure West’s Tube Rental Stand- Golden, CO

Whitewater Tubing on the Clear Creek

This is an exciting whitewater tubing adventure! Your daily tube rental includes a commercial grade river tube with complimentary lifejacket and helmet. Walk along the picturesque Clear Creek path through historic Golden to a variety of put-ins and then float back to Adventure West’s tube stand right by the takeout. Customers generally tube for 2-3 hours; a single trip that includes walking to the furthest put-in and floating back to our take-out takes about 1 hour.

Daily Tube Rental Pricing:


Single Tube $20/day                       Double Tube $37/day
