16 Jul Tubing in Louisiana | Marsh Buggies
When it starts to heat up during July, what better way to spend your Saturday than tubing in Louisiana? Tubing is an activity for people of all ages to beat the heat while still getting to enjoy the outdoors. Marsh Buggies loves the outdoors of Louisiana and that’s why we’ve dedicated our lives to amphibious machinery that helps preserve it.
Not only is tubing cheap, it keeps you cool and offers scenic views of Louisiana. In New Orleans, the North Shore offers a few places you can go tubing along the Bogue Chitto River.
Here are the best tubing places in the area:
Bogue Chitto Tubing Center
The family run tubing center in Bogalusa, LA claims to be the oldest tubing business in the Washington Parish. It offers the newer “blue tubes” which have a headrest, cup holder and inner safety chambers. You can enjoy a two or four-hour float trip for $20 per person and they have life jackets available at no extra cost.
Louisiana River Adventures
Open daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Louisiana River Adventures offers two and four-hour floats as well. Four hour floaters must be present by 2 p.m. to make the shuttle and two-hour floats are guaranteed if you arrive by 4 p.m.
Rocky Bottom Tubing
Located in Franklinton, LA is inside Bogue Chitto State Park. Tubing trips last around three hours for $15 per adult and $12 for children. They have nicer tubes for $5 more. If you call ahead you’ll have a shorter wait time and more time to spend on the water.
Tiki Tubing offers a different trip down the Amite River in Livingston Parish. The four-hour trips cost $25 each for any style of tube, including the fancier lounge tube. Tubers can book online in advance for a trip Friday through Sunday.
Enjoy a relaxing summer tubing in Louisiana with any of these great companies. Don’t let the heat stop you from seeing these great views. Remember that without amphibious equipment, waterways and areas surrounding water would not be in the condition they are for you to visit without the hard working contractors that preserve the waterways!
