Man I did parasailing, and jet skiing, but this tubing experience was the most intense and fun of all. Ask for the instructor Chris personally he made the experience really fun for me. I suggest you wear goggles because the water will burn your eyes. Also if you can’t hold on like your life depends on it. It’s not for you. You will fall in the water and I’m pretty sure that will not be pleasant.
