We’re all about jet skis, wakeboards and all the other high-energy watersports out on the lake, but sometimes we just want to goof off and cool off, and that means tubing Chelan Lake! Inner tubing doesn’t require any special skills; just hang on tight and go as fast—or slow—as you like. Don’t want a thrill ride? Just rent one of our tubes and bob or paddle your way around beautiful Lake Chelan; it’s as easy as punching in “inner tube rentals near me!”

Believe it or not, recreational tubing has a long history. A 1966 article in Time Magazine credits the invention of tubing to Princess Chumbhot of Nagar Svarga, Thailand, though images of recreational tubing date back at least to 1916. The rise of the automobile in the early 20th century meant there was suddenly a large supply of inner tubes available to a fun-seeking public. Give people a hot day and a way to float on water, and the rest is history!


Of course, Chelan Parasail & Watersports made our name with parasailing rentals, but we don’t stop there. We’re the leader in Lake Chelan inner tubing rentals, but we stock an incredible variety of other watersports items as well. If there’s something you need for fun out on the water but don’t see listed here, just give us a call! There’s a great chance we’ve already got you covered.
