Our tubing trips keep our customers coming back year after year! Choose between a four hour trip from Berry Bridge to Brewer Bridge or a five and a half hour trip taking you from Berry Bridge to Penbrook Landing. On our Niobrara tubing trips you’ll drift down the slow-flowing river on a giant inflatable tube. You will be hooked up to your friends and family, allowing you to enjoy this wonderful experience together! Take your time to enjoy the Niobrara River and its beautiful surroundings, including an opportunity to visit to Nebraska’s tallest waterfall, the magnificent Smith Falls!

Please note: Pets are not permitted on the tubes or the shuttle bus!


Come and enjoy paddling through the scenic wilderness of Nebraska’s Niobrara River. Here at Little Outlaw, we have both single and tandem kayaks as well as double seater canoes available for you! The Niobrara river is slow-flowing and calm, with typical current speeds of three to seven miles per hour, making it perfect for kayakers and canoers of all experience levels to enjoy. We pride ourselves on our top of the line equipment and guarantee that you’ll have a quality kayak or canoe for your trip! All kayak and canoe trips offer a free shuttle service to the start point which means that after you have made your way down the river you will finish at the same location where you left your vehicle.


Are you looking to get out and experience the Niobrara River without having to get very wet? Wish you had a back rest to relax while floating? We have the answer, Our ‘new’ 2 person couch style tubes make it easy and comfortable to enjoy the Scenic Niobrara River. Rent a cooler carrier tube for your snacks and drinks, then enjoy the day. We have noticed these tubes seem more popular the older you are:-) Join us on one of our fun couch tubes trips which go out from Memorial Day through Labor Day. You’ll have the opportunity to visit Nebraska’s tallest waterfall, the incredible Smith Falls. Don’t forget that at least one person in your group will need to be ready to get into the river and tow your tubes to shore at the end of your trip!

We were in Valentine for the Sandhills Marathon and looking for things to do. Found this outfitter for tubing the Niobrara River. What a gem!! Rich was extremely flexible when we started to doubt the weather and thought of switching to kayaks. Ultimately, we settled on 2 tubes and a cooler tube. It was the perfect way to spend an afternoon in Valentine.

Great outfitter. They were right on time and everything was as advertised. We rented kayaks and did a 5.5 hour ride. The landing was very easy to spot and very well marked. We will definitely book with them again.

Website was easy to navigate and easy to book our family tubing experience. Communication about float information was complete and questions were answered in a timely manner. The interaction between and help from all employees the day of the float was excellent. Our family had a great experience. We will be returning again!

I have nothing but compliments for this outfitter. They were organized, friendly, and provided excellent service, Everything ran on time and the equipment worked well. Anyone thinking of a ride on this river should give Little Outlaw a chance to impress them as much as they impressed us.

Little Outlaw Outfitters were superb' everything we needed for our float they handled. We used the shuttle service and the gentleman that was driving was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the river. We will use little Outlaw again.

We visited in the off season but they made it very easy. They shuttle you upstream and pick the gear when done. Easy way to see the river.
