So you are all booked for tubing and you’re excited to be on the water, but you over-planners are wondering…
What to bring on your float!
Wear that swimsuit or something you don’t mind getting wet, because the water is warm and fun to splash around!
2. Hat and sunglasses
On sunny days, the sun is very strong overhead and you may want some protection!
Protect your skin! On sunny days, you’re going to need it.
4. Footwear with an ankle strap
Your favorite flip-flops will end up somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean (The Kennebec flows all the way to the coast).
The float is between two and three hours long so come prepared to handle the afternoon munchies! The Inn by the River, your check-in location, also houses a Restaurant and Pub so you can grab lunch or drinks before your float.
6. Drink of choice
Stock a cooler with your favorite bubbly drink for your float trip!
You’re going to get thirsty out there so fill up a water bottle beforehand.
8. Bluetooth speaker
Bring the chill vibes of the river up a level with some tunes!
9. An extra tube for your cooler
Don’t forget to add another tube to your reservation for the cooler! Nobody wants to carry that thing downriver in their lap.
10. Waterproof cases for your phone and other valuables
The Kennebec has swallowed GoPros, phones, and every other valuable electronic, so consider bringing a waterproof case, one that can ideally clip onto the carabiner attached to the tube.
