New tubing trip down the valley into the beautiful New York River and Beer!

There’s a new option for tubing down a beautiful rock-walled ravine in Upstate, New York. And you can even have your own floating cooler during the flight.

Whitewater Challengers offers a lazy tubing track in a new location on the Black River.

Our ‘Tube Taxi’ will take you up the river, then enjoy a relaxing raft with friends and family down the beautiful, rock-walled Black River Valley.

Black River Canyon

If you want something fast-paced, spend a day white water rafting. Black River Valley, which begins in Watertown and ends in Brownville, is a rare whitewater gem, known for its challenging cliffs. It is one of the few white water streams with reliable flows throughout the summer.

“If you’ve never seen this part of the river before, it’s one of the coolest and most beautiful places in 315.”
