Summer relaxation at its finest
Picture yourself floating down the beautiful Kennebec River– beer (juice box?) in hand- surrounded by green pine trees, blue sky, warm water, and your friends. The sun is shining, the water is clear, and you find yourself wondering when your next free day is that you can come back and do this all over again.
Tubing has become one of summer’s most popular activities, especially here in The Forks. It is an experience in the heart of Maine wilderness that is relaxed, fun, and hassle-free. Who wouldn’t enjoy a lazy float, splashing your friends, soaking up the sunlight, basking in the natural beauty of Maine, and maybe spotting a bald eagle?
Tubing is totally safe for kids, totally easy to plan, and a total blast for everyone. If you are looking for a fun group activity, this will have everyone smiling the entire float downriver. It is one million times cooler than doing an indoor lazy river- don’t even bother going back to that waterpark. Leave the crowds, beaches, and cities behind, and social distance the fun way!
What do you need to bring?
Bring that cooler stocked with your drink of choice, bring water, wear clothes you won’t mind getting wet (depends on how much your friends are splashing you), and wear shoes that have an ankle strap because the Kennebec has swallowed too many flip-flops already.
Tubing with Three Rivers
This 6.5 mile float down the Lower Kennebec is between 2 and 3 hours. We provide tubes, life jackets, and shuttle transportation from the river at the end of your float. After your check-in at the Inn by the River, all you need to do is grab your PFD and your tube, and walk directly across the street to the put it to begin your float. Book ahead of time here to reserve your spot and don’t forget to add an extra tube for your cooler! We also have Inflatable Kayaks available for the Lower Kennebec as well, so you can paddle alongside your tubing pals!
