How are there no reviews of Big Big on the Battenkill? Well, here's everything you need to know.I have wanted to go tubing down the Battenkill since the first time I heard of it when I was 10 years old and my mom and I were visiting her friend who bred horses in Sandgate. It was the dead of winter. Despite living up here from 2002-2007 and being back a year I still hadn't gone. Kris and I were supposed to go for a hike this weekend but the weather looked to be a bit too hot for the moderate/strenuous hike we had planned. "We should go TUBING!" I realized.From the time I sent my initial text until having everything I needed was super quick, including a phone call (with follow up text) for the parking directions. We let the owner know that her mileage was a little off and the last step of the directions is more like 1.4 miles instead of 2, 2.5. But the spot is easy to find. We arrived and were met by the van, paid easily using square (they also take cash) and were on our way to the starting point before floating back to our cars.The tubes are really well-maintained and didn't lose any air. They were also clean and a nice size with a drink holder. Our ride lasted nearly 3 hours and was awesome -- the views are amazing and people are really awesome. I can't wait to go again- - we've started planning an end of summer trip with our friends.Very quick and friendly service and a super professional business that makes it easy to get to and down the river without any hassle!
My friends and I had a fabulous time!! Looking forward to coming back!
Went tubing down the Battenkill yesterday and I can't complain about the service of Big Big on the Battenkill. Kristen explained everything to us and was right there meeting us to deliver us to the starting point and was there within 5 minutes picking us up at the end of our journey.
The water was a bit cold but we got used to it. The river was higher than I expected only walking a few times. The trip was very relaxing with other people on tubes, kayaks, and canoes sharing the river. Everyone was very friendly.
The best part was an additional cooler tube we could tie on to our tubes. After awhile we decided to hang on to each other so we would not drift so far apart.
I would definitely recommend Big Big on the Battenkill. Just $25 per person for 3 hours of relaxing fun.
"The best $25 spent" a tuber told me. However he regretted not leaving his car key with me and he lost it the last 5 minutes of his trip.
We had a great afternoon floating down the river! Thanks again!
