  • About

    Turtle Tubing is One of a Kind!

    We are Colorado’s exclusive full service tubing provider, offering top quality towable tubes and safety equipment. Experience our lazy river tours.  We are sure to provide you with an experience you won’t soon forget!


    Turtle Tubing, LLC was founded by two guys who loved to spend time floating the historic Colorado River. With experience tubing in Florida & Arizona, they realized the Western Slope of Colorado needed the excitement, enjoyment, and memories of tubing the Colorado River. They’ve spent the last 4 years sharing their passion with Vail Valley guests and continuing to find new ways to grow the company. What started off as a small tubing operation run with just one bus has now grown into a multi-facetted company with three buses and multiple employees.
