Our Madison River Tubing Trips are for Adults and Children ages 3 and up.
We reserve the right to charge 50 percent of the trip cost to your card if you fail to cancel your trip at least 24 hours in advance. We charge the entire cost if you do not cancel and do not show up. We also require that you inform us to add or subtract from your group number. Please check the weather forecast 24 hours before coming and cancel if it is not suitable for you. We typically do not cancel trips due to weather.
Can I bring Glass on the River?
Do not bring any glass products on any river. We are all responsible for the health and safety of our fellow river friends and the environment.
Where Do I get Picked Up?
The standard tubing shuttle has 2 pick-up locations - our shop in Downtown Bozeman(11th & Main) and the Town Pump Fuel Station in Four Corners (8 miles west of Bozeman). With large groups and exclusive trips custom pick-up locations are possible on a case-by-case basis.
Do I have to Wear a Personal Floatation Device (PFD)?
Madison River Tubing requires customers to wear PFDs. PFDs reduce risks associated with water activities. Take away some of your worries and just relax on the tubing trip. If you refuse to take or wear a PFD you will be required to explicitly state your refusal on your waiver. Children 12 and under will not be able to refuse a PFD.
Can you pick me up at Blacksford?
Madison River Tubing prides itself on reducing emissions and river access congestion for everyone involved. Extra stops can confuse customers and derail the shuttle timing for the entire day. For these reasons we try to avoid picking up customers at the Blacksford River Access. Please inquire about custom trips for exceptions.
