BOISE — The Boise River floating season is officially over. Connie Zeller with Boise River Raft & Tube Rentals says this year, they’ve added 32 rafts, a custom truck, and a custom trailer.

“We turn it over three times in a day, all of it,” said Zeller.

Zeller says her business is weather dependent so nothing is guaranteed.

“One of the trickiest things is we’re sort of dependent on mother nature and we never know exactly what our opening date is going to be,” said Zeller.

She says they only have limited space so they can't leave everything inflated at the same time. One thing she says is consistent is the people who love to come
back.

“We get people that are regulars that come back and rent every weekend,” said Zeller.

Zeller says people come from all over the world to visit the Boise River.

“I’m used to a bit of body surfing on big waves so ya, I’ll give it my best shot,” said Ben Galanos.

"Be on the river and have an amazing day so could you get a better labor day,” said Con Allday.
