Posted on June 28, 2023 by Laura Lucky

Saguaro Lake Ranch’s tubing experience on the Lower Salt River provides a fun, refreshing, and scenic float that families and outdoors-lovers can enjoy; it is the perfect vantage point to take in the beauty of the Sonoran Desert. Our customers have the exclusive opportunity to float on the pristine first mile of the Lower Salt River.

Our tubing trips start at the top of the river at our beautiful Salt River tubing launch site.  This is where the water is released from Stewart Mountain Dam’s turbine, where it is cool and clean; it’s the most serene and unspoiled part of the Lower Salt. Ranch customers park and check in at our office for their day adventure.

Scenic Loop: $20-$23 plus tax

Reservations available 9:30 am to 1:00 pm with ending float time & departing of the ranch by 3:00 pm

Our scenic float is a short 30-40 minute float to Horse Thief’s Wash. This float is popular for those who don’t want to enter the public recreation area and who enjoy a little exercise; it’s a short 10-15 minute walk from the exit back to the ranch. Customers can do this float several times for one flat fee. Float the river, walk back, rest and relax under the shade of our trees on our riverside lawn up until the above posted departure time.

Self Shuttle: $20-$23 plus tax (NO return shuttle)

Reservations available 9:30 am to 1:00 pm with ending float time & departing of the ranch by 3:00 pm

This is a do it your way trip. Rent one of our tubes and choose your own exit point on the river. Launch just below the dam at our ranch launch area and when you’re done, pick up your car and shuttle yourself back to the ranch by the above posted departure time. This trip is for those wanting to see more of the river. Tube deflator tools available.
