Whitewater Tubing in Golden, CO on the Clear Creek- Reserve a tube or try our new tube w/shuttle package!

Tubing in Golden, CO is an exciting whitewater adventure! This year we are offering a tube/shuttle package for the first time or you can still opt for the tube rental only where you walk to the put-ins. 

Tube w/Shuttle

  • Two shuttle trips to the main put-in for tubing along the Clear Creek- whitewater tubing is different each time you float down so most people do two runs
  • Commercial grade river tube with complimentary lifejacket and helmet
  • Tubing tips and safety talk

Daily Tube Rental (No Shuttle):

  • Includes commercial grade river tube with complimentary lifejacket and helmet
  • Walk along the picturesque Clear Creek path with your tube through historic Golden to a variety of put-ins and then float back to Adventure West’s tube stand located right by the takeout in Vanover Park
