Towable tubes for boating provide a fun and exhilarating day on the water for the family and friends! Water tubes require no skill or practice – just a bit of gumption to hop on and hold on! Most towable tubes (or floats) only need a marine-grade tow rope and inflator pump to get you going. It is best to have at least 2 people in the boat – one to drive and one to watch the tube.
When towable tubes first hit the market, the tubes were literally just a tube with a canvas cover, and only accommodated one person. In order for more than one person to enjoy the ride, it required two tubes to be attached to the back of the boat. As water sports evolved, so have tubes. Now you can buy a one-person tube, or even one that can hold up to several people. Our reviews, and based on our experience riding tubes, will only cover those tubes that are deemed the safest so people don’t bump heads while jumping over the surf.
