The national forests don't allow inflatables on their rivers (at least not in the Ocala National Forest). Tubes are ok for some bodies of water, but we like to canoe or kayak rivers such as the James River in Virginia and rivers where we live in Florida. I don't want to be in a tube in some of these remote rivers, especially with gators lurking. We do tube I'm Florida rivers, but you have to know which ones are best for that. We have a canoe, but would like to get some sit on top kayaks.
