You may bring your own life jacket as long as it is US COAST GUARD approved. FYI, you will be required to take a life jacket to float the river. TWRA and US Coastguard require that life jackets accompany each tuber out on the river. Children 12 years old and younger are required to wear these PFD’s through the entire float. Adults are required to bring it with them on their tube in case it is needed. If you are not an experienced swimmer, we recommend that you wear your PFD at all times.
