Summer Bummer: There Are Only 7 Days Left to Float the Boise River
When Boise River Float season started, you made yourself the promise that you were getting out to float at least one. If you haven't delivered on that promise to yourself yet, you're running out of time.
No matter when the river opens, float season always comes to a close after Labor Day. This year, that means the final day for float season will be Monday, September 6. As float season winds down, Boise River Raft and Tube at Barber Park and the shuttle service are operating on a limited schedule. That means, if you're hoping to float before Friday, you'll need to provide your own raft and arrange transportation back to Barber Park.
These are the remaining hours of operation for the summer of 2021:
