Blackwater Tubing (Green Route)

Price from: R650 Per Person

Duration: 3 Hour

The trip includes a 20min scenic forest drive from Storms River Village to the drop off and pickup point in the old Storms River Pass. At rivers edge you recieve your tube and we take you for a short upstream paddle to a sandy beach where we sling our tubes over our shoulders and walk a further 200m to the next calm pool.

Now we jump onto our Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP) and paddle approximately 800m further to a 8m optional cliff jump. Don't worry we'll demonstrate first and if your up for it you're welcome to take the leap. Whilst the brave hearts are leaping those that want to take the day a little easier are kept entertained with activities like SUP handstands, tube balancing and swimming. A well earned chocolate bar marks the turn around point at the Jump site and we paddle back to where our tube were left at rivers edge. From here we now take you on a spectacular round route down stream tubing pool hop back to the low water bridge where we started.

The Green Route forest experience entails 1.5 fun-filled hours of mild activity in exquisite Tsitsikamma scenery.

It is therefore suitable for folks of various fitness level and families with small children 5 years and up. Our access to the Storms River takes you on an exquisite journey though pristine forest.

Please note: Tubing experiences vary according to changing river levels and weather conditions. So please call a day in advance for advice.

Most (90%) of our trips are conducted on medium-low to low water and the trip entails pool paddling, bouldering and walking, tube jumps, swimming, and optional rock jumps up to 8m in height. (short pour over and shoot rapids are water level dependent)
