Adrenaline Seekers~ Whitewater Tubing
For over 30 years the Town Tinker Tube Rental has provided whitewater equipment for adrenaline seekers to come and experience the intensity of the rapids on the Esopus Creek. The Esopus Creek is “NOT” a lazy river! It’s class II whitewater which means 1 to 3 foot waves and rapids. It is not a man-made amusement park ride. There are real rocks and trees that can get in your way. Tubers must be physically capable of maneuvering around obstacles and have the ability to recover when tossed out of the tube.

We have bikes at the B&B, available upon request for your cycling pleasure!
