We had a wonderful time, water levels were great!
Meghan...the manager was superb in guidance, assistance, encouragement and overall cheerfulness.
The two lady’s that worked for Tar River were extremely nice. We had a large group of us, ages 9- 58 and we all had a great time.
Everyone is super friendly and really want to make your trip both enjoyable and safe!
This was my second annual trip and we had a blast once again! The Tar River crew is so friendly and helpful, I highly recommend them. One thing to note is the varying water levels through out the season. The "river" is almost a creek, very shallow at some points, but I enjoy it - it makes me feel safer and it's also fun to navigate around different obstacles like logs and sand bars. I've been in mid July and August. I'll come back next year and check it out earlier in the season to see what it's like when it's deeper as well. Thanks Tar River crew!
Family had a great time
Great folks! Good equipment. The staff just acting like they enjoyed what they were doing.
We had a wonderful "stroll" down the river. The weather was perfect.
The rafts (tubes) exceeded our expectations. They were so comfortable!
Everything was great except I paid for a cooler tube and there were not any available, they were all taken. Other than that everything was great, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.
Everything about my trip was wonderful. Great and friendly help and very clean.
It was such a great time! Everyone was so nice and helpful. It was a GREAT day. Thank you so much
Had a great time with friends and the people there were very helpful and pleasant Can't wait to go again
The staff were very friendly and helpful! It would have been preferable to have some of the debris removed from the river, but I understand the nature of the activity and understand why that might not be possible.
Had a great time!
Very fun trip and relaxing
We love TRL. It's so smoothly can ran the people are so friendly
We had a great day on the Tar River. The ladies working were helpful and friendly. We will be back.
Staff was so courteous & helpful, water & weather was great! Wonderful 4th of July activity.
We love the friendly, relaxed staff at Tar River Life. They always make us feel like family! We drive from Cary to tube here a couple of times each summer. Tubing on the Tar has become an Independence Day tradition for our group of friends. It's important to take your time as you float down, stopping to enjoy the occasional sandbar or swimming hole. Most times the only muddy areas are the put-in and take-out locations on the banks. Along most of the way, the river bottom is very sandy, without lots of big rocks, and it is narrow enough that trees provide a good amount of shade on sunny days. For these reasons, we prefer tubing on the Tar to tubing on the Cape Fear, which has a very rocky bottom and little to no shade. For tubing, we also prefer the Tar to the New, the Eno, or the Neuse rivers. Thanks to the amazing folks at Tar River Life for providing a great way to enjoy the outdoors!
Our group had a great time! The staff is friendly and courteous. It’s my second trip with this company, I recommend it to all my friends!
so fun, and employees were fantastic :)
Only one problem one of our tubes had leak. But we enjoyed the river. Would also liked to have had a paddle when it was slow moving.
It wqs absolutely amazing the staff were very helpful aand knowledgeable and me and my friend were worried about our weight being an issue but once we saw the floats we were relieved. We were hwlped in and out of the river with no judgement passed. Everyone and everything was absolutely amazing!!!!!! And we are actually coming back this Sunday as well with our mother.
The staff were super friendly and helpful, which made a big difference with this being mine and my daughter’s first time tubing. We got down the river in a little less than 3 hours. There had been a lot of rain lately so water was higher than expected. Everyone has to try the the rope swing at the end. We are all ready talking about coming back another time. Thank you!
The staff was so friendly and helpful!
The staff was very helpful with our large group and we had a great time!
Great family fun. Wonderful relaxing experience!
This was the second tubing trip and it was awesome. The staff make it an incredibly easy and relaxing experience.
The River was perfect and Meagan was friendly and very helpful.
What a wonderful way to spend my birthday weekend. All the workers were super nice. Would 100% recommend and I can't wait to come back! Only recommendation is when the river is running high that maybe on the entrance to the river have a rope of some sort that you can hold on too so you don't start floating down the river while you group is still getting in.
Amazing experience. Easy to drive to - there are signs when you get close telling you which way to go. The staff were very friendly and helpful in making this a fun experience! The tubbing was relaxing and had beautiful views. Will definitely be back and will be telling my friends about this!
Amazing time floating down the river. Staff was awesome, very friendly people. Helped safely locate my friends dogs after they decided to wonder away and get themselves lost. Will definitely be back there in the future, already planning to make this trip become a yearly Memorial Day weekend trip.
Customer service was excellent! I will definitely go again & refer my friends!
The hosts did a great job managing our large group. The original date we booked was not looking great in terms of weather, but we were easily able to change our reservation to the next day. The staff was very friendly!
