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