A float on the Cowichan River is a family-friendly thing to do on Vancouver Island, and we make it easier to get out on the water with our Family Pass! Save on your tube rentals and enjoy the same great level of service and quick, complimentary shuttle pick-up at the end of your float. Have more than two adults and two children in your family? You don’t need to leave anyone behind! Simply add extra adults or children to your booking and we apply the discounts for you.

A relaxing float with the family makes for great family memories. Start making your own memories by reserving your Cowichan River tube rentals for your family now!

Additional Info

  • Chevron down Can we take bags and coolers etc down the river?
  • Yes, you can tie things onto your tubes or take a swift tube which has a bottom to it, to hold anything you bring.

  • Chevron down Can we bring our dog?
  • Small dogs can sit on your lap and are allowed on the bus. Medium to large sized dogs aren’t recommended as they can’t sit in a tube with you and it’s a long way to swim for them. They are permitted on the bus though if you do choose to bring them.

  • Chevron down Should we wear shoes?
  • Not a must but a pair of shoes would make the end of the trip more enjoyable.

  • Chevron down How rough is the trip, rapids etc?
  • The first hour of the trip is a laid-back journey through the start of the Cowichan River, where you will see some fantastic old bridges and then the ride picks up a bit for the remainder of the trip as the river narrows. Its nothing crazy at all, this is more of a relaxing float rather than an adrenaline rush. The home page of this website features drone footage of our entire run also.
