Delaware River Tubing, Inc. is a family-oriented business dedicated to offering fun filled days out on the Delaware River. Whether you're tubing, rafting, canoeing, or kayaking, please familiarize yourself with our policies and rules for a safe and exciting trip. Below is a list of our general policies:
Lifejackets: Delaware River Tubing, Inc. offers free lifejacket rentals for all river trips. All participants must wear their life jackets for the entire river trip. Safety is our number one priority for all of our guests.
Refunds: Delaware River Tubing, Inc. will issue refunds only in the event that you paid or pre-paid prior to entering the river and choose not to go for any reason. However, once you enter the river, there will be no refunds issued for any reason. If you miss or choose not to stop at The Famous River Hot Dog Man, a refund will not be issued because there is no charge for the free bbq meal. It is up to you to stop if you wish to redeem your meal wristband. Signs and briefings will further explain how to get to The Famous River Hot Dog Man.
Free BBQ Meal: The Free BBQ meal is a free meal provided by “The Famous River Hot Dog Man". Delaware River Tubing, Inc. does not offer a “no meal option”. If you miss the food stop or choose not to stop, there will be no credit or refunds given.
Inclement Weather: Delaware River Tubing, Inc. reserves the right to close due to inclement weather. Check the weather conditions for Milford, NJ (08848) prior to coming. If there is a possibility of thunder or lightening, please call us in advance to check if we are open or closed. We suggest that your group have a rain date scheduled in the event of rain. If it begins to rain, thunder, or lightening while you are on your trip, there will be no refunds issued. We do not control the weather and cannot be held responsible if it begins to rain during your outing. Plan accordingly and make the best decision.
High Water (Flooding): For your safety, in the event of flood conditions, we will be forced to close. The Famous River Hot Dog Man will be closed when the river is 4' above normal (6' Reigelsville, NJ reading). Once the water is 6 feet above normal water height (8' Reigelsville, NJ reading), we will stop our operations until the water level is below 6 feet and safe to enter.
Equipment: Tubes and rafts are typically available for walk-in guests. For a canoe or kayak rental, please call us with your inquiry. A reservation helps us be prepared for the day in terms of staffing and supplies. Sorry, we no longer provide transportation to private recreationalists. You must rent equipment from Delaware River Tubing, Inc. to use our transportation services. No exceptions! Equipment is inspected prior to customer usage. Customers who intentionally damage equipment will be charged for the damaged equipment. For natural equipment wear and tear usage (ie. tube/raft deflation, etc), we will do our best to quickly swap that equipment.

Delaware River Tubing is innovating the tubing / outdoor water sports industry with the Stay Together Strap.
Invented in 2010 by us for safety, ease and efficiency. Perfect for groups because our two clip straps allow both tubers to clip and unclip.
Imitation Stay Together Straps (single clip straps) and rope are not safe. Knots in rope get tighter under tension and when wet. Single clip straps don't allow either rider to disconnect in emergency.
