We love tubing the Chattahoochee River. We also enjoy just wading around and sitting on the banks. It is deeper in some parts but most of it through Helen is less than knee deep. Cool and refreshing.

Beautiful river to sit by and watch the fun as all the tubes and people come through in downtown Helen. There are several companies that rent tubes or if you get out of town a bit there are several other entry points.

Water level was said to be flowing well due to all of the rain. 2-3 hour floating trip took about 1.5 hours. The water felt refreshing on this hot July day.

Because it is North of Atlanta and it's waste the water is clean clear and safe to get in. We live in Columbus south.of Atlanta and the bacteria counts are scary and we won't dream of going in. In Helen safe and fun

I wish I knew. We did not go tubing. I'm sure that that information is readily available in Helen or on the internet.
