For kids or adults, 3 person towable tubes are a fast, wet good time. Due to their stability they are a great way to break kids into the joys of being on the water. Best used on any body of water where you have the space to get up some good speed they are also good times with anyone of any age. Getting them out on open water I find to be best because you’re obviously not going to be kiting with a 3 person hot dog, however if you can catch some waves it makes for a far better ride. Normally they are constructed by putting a PVC inner tube under nylon fabric cover they have a nice exterior feel. With a variety of different designs, it was very hard to assemble this compilation of the 10 best 3 person towable tubes from our towable tube reviews.
AIRHEAD AHGF-3 G-Force Inflatable Towable
Airhead is one of the leading companies out there making high-quality tubes. Their AHSL-12 Slide Towable tube is the preferred tube for the single person looking to catch some air and their high-quality workmanship trickles down through all of their products. The little nice things about this tube are the six nylon-covered handles with neoprene knuckle guards for a comfortable grasp while riding. Also, part of the design is a Boston valve for fast inflating and deflating and with a disc design over the classic hot dog you get a bit more safety –you don’t have to check behind you to see if the person on the back has fallen off. A few other nice things about this disc is it is big. How big? Try 78 in. x 75 in. The very large and thin size and slim body construction give you a couple of advantages. One is if you get dumped in the water it makes it a lot easier to get back on and if you’ve got only one person using riding they will definitely start to kite. All of these features place this tube in the number one slot of the 10 best 3 person tubes.
SPORTSSTUFF 53-2223 Super Mable Towable
With the bigger tubes, you begin to get some interestingly shaped designs this one is kind of the tip of the iceberg. With its couch like design this 3 person tube made by Sports Stuff has a truly unique look. While you might just be thinking “couch potato,” this tube has front and back tow points allowing you a few options as to what you can do with it. First you can choose if you want to sit against the seat back or you can tie this off to the back for a “chariot ride.” Secondly you can tie off to one tow point and then add another tube to the other side. Also completely unique to this model is it has seat cushions –something totally unique to tubes. While there no Boston valve there is a patented speedy inflate/deflate valve. Granted this tube is a tad pricey but its size 75 in. x 73 in. and the fact that it comes with a 1-year warranty plus everything else makes it worth the price.
SPORTSSTUFF 53-1750 Poparazzi Towable
Spotsstuff likes to make some weird looking tubes and the 53-1750 Poparazzi Towable is no exception. In fact, this is probably the most outrageous looking tube I’ve ever seen. However, the flashy looks are not compensating for anything this tube can corner and handle tight turns due to its wide wingspan. Another benefit of the unique design is the option of positions, laying down sitting or even standing –there are handles on the roof. This is a whole lot of fun.
HO Sports Delta3 Boat Towable Delta Wing
While the 53-2223 Super Mable has padded seats this tube has padded floors and the wing sweep design creates a more streamlined effect for greater speed. You get some nice extras such as 12V pump and tow rope.
RAVE Sports X-Frantic Ski Tube
In the #5 place on the 10 best 3 person towable tubes is the RAVE Sports X-Frantic Ski Tube. This is a decent tube; instead of the usual nylon that is used as an exterior fabric this tube uses polyester. With rear boarding straps and large EVA anti-chafe guards, this tube is a steal and is the least expensive item in the ten best.
WOW World of Watersports TriPod
Look there in the sky, it’s a rocket, it’s a beer bottle no it’s WOW World of Watersports TriPod 2 in 1 Ski Tube. Not from Sportsstuff but certainly one wild design this tube has a fast-speed bottom to help acceleration while being towed. The TriPod shape allows for various riding positions. It’s not a bad deal.
AIRHEAD HD-3 Hot Dog Towable
Well, you can’t get any more classic tube hot dog than this. Made with three 30-gauge vinyl air chambers with a nylon shell, you won’t need any mustard for this dog. Of course, it’s a bit more than a foot long at 103 inches. A great ride for kids especially with the easy to grab handles. This is a solid ride.
