According to Tubing the Grand, “You can float with the current but you can also criss-cross the river and explore the islands. Tubes are also known as Solo Rafting. They’re stable, comfortable and suitable for fit beginners.”

If you’re looking for a more relaxing experience you can float with the current, if you want a little adventure you can criss-cross the river and explore the multiple small islands along the way.

There will be plenty of sights to see including a protected eagle habitat and osprey nesting areas.

The 1,000-acre protected nature reserve that surrounds you as you float is sure to have other exciting things to see too.

The final kilometre of the adventure takes you to a stunning 50-foot limestone bluff with a waterfall – don’t forget to snap some photos!

Guests are encouraged to bring along some snacks and drinks as well as the following:

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Casual relaxed clothing or beachwear. Avoid cotton – gets wet stays wet
  • Footwear that will get wet
  • Zip-Lock bags for phone & keys

The excursions are daily between 10:30 AM and 11:00 AM with booking availability found here.

Tube rentals start at $36 for children 10 and under, $38 for anyone asked 10-16 and $40 for adults.

You’ll have four hours to enjoy the tubes with the 8 KM trek estimated to take around two hours to complete.

A complimentary taxi ride back in provided, too!
