Floating on an inflatable tube on a body of water can be a fun adventure. However, you need to stay safe while enjoying this activity. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Take the time to check the weather conditions before you get on the water with your floating tubes. If it’s raining, then the currents in the water could be stronger. The ideal weather is that which is sunny with little to no chance of rain or storms.
Make sure your equipment is in the best condition possible. Check the tubes to ensure that there are no holes as you don’t want to start floating only to discover that the float deflates in the water. You also need to wear a life jacket and have a small kit with you that contains a flashlight and other supplies in the event of an emergency.
Although you don’t need to wear sneakers while you’re using your tube, you should try to invest in a good pair of water shoes. These are designed to get wet and can be beneficial if you need to get in the water to move a stuck tube or if you need to walk across rocky surfaces to get in and out of the water.
When using floating tubes on the water, you want to make sure you stay hydrated and have the proper nutritional items on hand, especially if you plan to stay on the water for a few hours. Crackers, granola bars, and dried fruits are good items to have in a waterproof container.
