Welcome to Brewers Canoers

Tubing the Niobrara is definitely the most favored way to float the Niobrara River. Tubing is an easy and relaxing way to see this gem in Nebraska. The trip includes access to several waterfalls ranging anywhere from a foot to 70 feet in height. If you're looking for a great way to experience tubing then the Niobrara will beat any other river in Nebraska.

Canoeing and Kayaking is another way to float the river with just a little more effort involved. It's going to be faster paced and it covers more ground. The biggest difference in comparing the two is that paddling can cover 18 miles in four hours when tubing will only cover nine miles in four hours.
