VANCOUVER ISLAND TUBE RENTAL
Reserve your Cowichan River tube rental with the Tube Shack and get ready for a few hours of fun floating down this beautiful river with your friends and family. Relax during the lazy start, stop and explore the beaches, and gear up for some laughs on the rapids at the end. This tube ride is a must-do on Vancouver Island!
At the end of your two and a half to three-hour float, cool off with a refreshing swim before meeting our friendly guides who are waiting to pick you up and shuttle you back to your car. Our economical Vancouver Island river tube rentals are the perfect addition to a fun day on the island.
- 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.
