Adventure Details

The Tube Shack offers the only way to river tube the Cowichan River, with all rentals including shuttle service. The adventure typically lasts 2.5 to 3 hours, with the last shuttle pickup at 6:30pm running at least every 10 minutes. Visitors are encouraged to leave their Tube Shack tubes inflated and bring them up to the road upon arrival at Little Beach. Frequently asked questions include whether bags and coolers can be taken down the river (yes, they can be tied onto tubes or placed in a swift tube with a bottom). Additionally, two people can share a tube, with swift tubes recommended for adults and small children. Small dogs are permitted on the bus but medium to large dogs are discouraged due to the distance they would need to swim. While shoes are not mandatory, wearing them can make the end of the trip more comfortable. The river tubing adventure at the Tube Shack begins with a leisurely float through the start of the Cowichan River, featuring picturesque old bridges. The ride becomes slightly more exciting as the river narrows, offering a relaxing experience rather than an adrenaline rush. Visitors can view drone footage of the entire trip on the website, ensuring a memorable and enjoyable excursion on the water. - Tube Shack is the only way to river tube the Cowichan River - All rentals include shuttle service - Duration of adventure is 2.5 to 3 hours.
