Tips for Floating the Delaware River
I played outside with strangers… GASPS! *Insert suspenseful music*
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Although, my anxiety was through the roof trying to make sure I maintained a proper distance and vice versa. Where did we go?
We floated the Delaware River!
The company we used is Delaware River Tubing.
AND I didn't play with anyone! #DontEvenLookAtMe
~Plenty of FREE parking
~A harness was provided to hook floats together
(Sorry HB, you’re not getting rid of me that easy)
~You can check your keys to ensure you don’t lose them
~Buses drop-off and pick-up from the designating floating area
(They only allowed around 6-8 people on each bus)
~I felt we should have received a discount since food wasn’t served
(We wouldn't have ate it anyways... #COVID)
~If food had been available, there should have been an option to opt out for a discounted price in light of COVID
~People were not social distancing or following protocol in line. The sad part was no one from the company's staff was enforcing the rules
(Don’t worry I was my own enforcer lol!)
~On the company's site they state "hard" shelled coolers were not allowed
(Not the case)
~They also said water shoes were required
(Not the case. I will say I enjoyed having water shoes. People in flip flops were struggling)
THINGS TO NOTE:
~We paid extra for floats with headrests
~Rafting, canoeing, and kayaking were available too
~You’re required to sign a waiver
~Leave anything you don’t want to lose or get wet in the car
~You’re required to buy your tickets in advance
~We floated around 2.5-3 hours
DON'T FORGET TO BRING THE FOLLOWING:
(Only until you to get to the designate float area)
(Filled with bevvies of your choice, be an adult, bring water)
A Fire personality (not for sale)!
The floating company does sale some of these items for an increased price.
WAYS TO SAVE:
~If you plan on going down with a group of friends, just take two cars
~Park one car at the beginning of the designated float area and one at the end
(This way you're not stranded at the end without a ride back up)
~Look into purchasing floats online. It may be cheaper than going through this company
(The don't own the river. Anyone can float)
~You’re paying for convenience...that’s it!
~Check for updates & restrictions on their website,
as things are constantly changing due to COVID
