How does the tubing work?

Just about anyone can tube—there’s no learning curve, and the ride can be as mild or wild as you’d like. You’ll hold on as you get towed behind the boat on a large, stable tube. Up to 3 passengers can ride the tube together at the same time. 

We book trips on the hour. You’ll be on the water for 60 minutes and get roughly 50 minutes of tubing time.

We can take up to 6 people on the boat at a time, and the minimum time is 60 minutes. If you have 7-9 people, you can book 1.5 hours and switch halfway through. For 10-12 passengers, you can book 2 hours and swap after about 40 minutes. You can add time in half-hour increments to any trip for $125/30 minutes.

What if I want to go tubing but not go too fast?

We can go slow and steady or wild and crazy—it’s up to you! You’ll give the captain easy hand signals from the tube to indicate your preference and adjust the pace of the ride at any time.

How many people can be on the tube at once?

Up to 3 can ride the tube at a time; we’ll switch the groups out several times so that everyone gets multiple turns.

What is the minimum age to tube?

We’ve had children as young as 2 go out with a parent! Our tube is large and stable, and we can go nice and slow for small children. We just ask that you use your best judgment; your child should be comfortable in the water if they’re tubing.

Do you teach wakeboarding and waterskiing?

Yes! Our captains are also instructors. Keep in mind that each individual needs about 30 minutes to try each new activity. Plan accordingly.  

How old do you have to be to learn to wakeboard or waterski?

It depends on the person, but typically, kids 12 and older learn best. 

Younger children tend to learn better in a camp setting where they can take their time over several days. We are happy to teach anybody, but it’s important to set realistic expectations and allow ample time for success.

In this setting, we recommend lessons for those determined to learn and encourage everyone else to ride the tube. Unless enough time is allotted, it can be difficult to get a child comfortable in the water—especially if they’re already apprehensive about the activity. Tubing, on the other hand, is fun and easy for everyone!

I have 6 people who all want to tube and learn to kneeboard, wakeboard and waterski. How much time do we need?

We suggest that everyone choose one activity in addition to tubing and allow 30 minutes per person to learn a watersport. For example: For 6 people to learn to wakeboard or waterski and get some time on the tube, you’ll need 3 hours.

If you don’t want to allow 30 minutes per person, we recommend you stick to tubing to maximize everyone’s time on the water.

In 1.5 hours, you’ll have time for 1-2 people to learn to wakeboard, waterski or kneeboard, and for everyone to take turns tubing. Book at least 30 minutes for each additional activity or person learning.

Each trip is customized for your group! Typically, everyone will take turns riding our 3-person tube across the Currituck Sound to our secluded wakeboarding and waterskiing area. We’ll equip you with the best wake and ski equipment from O’Brien and any instruction you might need. When the skiers and riders have had their fill, we’ll tube all the way back to Nor’Banks.

Scheduling your time:

Choose your time below based on the number of wakeboarders and waterskiers in your party. Each charter can take up to 6 passengers. Choose the number of wakeboarding and waterskiing participants, and the remainder of your party can join to watch and ride the tube for no extra charge!

  • 2-3 Beginners or 3-4 Experienced Riders  — 2 Hours
  • 3-4 Beginners or 5-6 Experienced Riders — 2.5 Hours

Who Can Ride?

This trip is guaranteed to please the whole family! We can take up to 6 riders and/or observers on the tubing boat at a time, and we have tubes to accommodate from 1-3 riders. Take multiple turns and fine-tune your ride from mild to wild. Keep in mind that we may have to plan around the weather and surface conditions (especially if you want a mild ride).

Scheduling your time:

  • 6 or fewer participants-  1 hour
  • 6 to 12 participants - 1.5-2 hours (we switch out at the Nor’ Banks pier)
