Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, you can tie things onto your tubes, rent a cooler carrier for $10, or take a swift tube, which has a bottom to it, to hold anything you bring.
Our regular tubes fit one person and our swift tubes are a good option for an adult and small child together. We recommend adults and older kids book their owns tubes and use a tube strap to float together. Just ask us for one at the counter.
Small dogs can sit on your lap and are allowed on the bus. Medium to Large sized dog aren’t recommended as they cant 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 chose to bring them.
Not a must but a pair of shoes would make the end of the trip more enjoyable.
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. It’s nothing crazy at all, this is more of a relaxing float rather than a adrenaline rush. The home page of this website features drone footage of our entire run also.
