Tumalo Creek rents tubes for $10 for two hours and thanks to an efficient shuttle service run by Bend Area Transit, floaters can get a ride back up to the put-in at Farewell Bend Park for only $2.50. Other tour providers run a shuttle service on the days the BAT is not available, assuring that floaters can get a ride seven days a week, all summer long. This company charges $3.00. The shuttles generally run every half hour.
Float the river right from Tumalo Creek. Park your car in our lot, rent your tubes and then walk under and across the Colorado Bridge and put in at McKay Park. From there you will float down to Drake Park and meet the shuttle. You can then take the shuttle back to McKay and float that section again or ride all the way up to Riverbend Park and float back down to Tumalo Creek through the Old Mill District.
Tube rentals are rented on a first-come, first-serve basis so come down and visit us today to start your floating adventure. We are located at 805 SW Industrial Way, downriver from the Old Mill District, across from the Colorado Bridge. 541.317.9407.
