Feel like you’re up to an even bigger challenge than tubing just ONE river this summer? We’ve picked out seven tubing adventures on seven different rivers in North Carolina. Think you can do them all before summer ends?

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!

In light of current circumstances related to the pandemic, tubing companies around the state are implementing new protocols to respond to new social distancing measures (check with each company to learn their safety plans), so there’s one less thing to worry about. Some tubing companies listed above may not have opened for the season yet, but you can check back with them as the weeks pass for more up-to-date information.

How many of North Carolina’s rivers have you been tubing on with family or friends? Think you’ll make all seven of these before the season ends? We’d love to know the answers to both, so feel free to join the discussion and to share your own photos in the comments!
