"The beauty and serenity of the Grand is the biggest surprise. I can't believe I'm less than an hour from Toronto and in a setting like this!"

Turbo Tubing: Just $38 + HST: We launch daily from 10:30 to 11am.

You’ll journey for hours down 8km of the fabulous Grand River. Turbo Tubing is a bit more adventurous and it's for reasonably fit individuals who want a slightly more active experience.

Click here for Map and Guide.

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

Turbo Tubes come with kayak paddles so they’re steerable and you can discover more of the river. Don’t rush – it’s a very pretty river so sit back, relax & enjoy. You probably found us by looking for Tubing Near Me - that’s almost always us & we want you to have a fun day.  Turbo Tubes have some room for snacks and beverages.

They're so comfortable that guests sometimes fall asleep.

Weight limit is 250 pounds.

FREE taxi back to our parking / launch site is included.

For the old-fashioned Tubing Purist $28 + HST

800x502# 6

Tubing purists can enjoy a two-hour Lazy River Float where you drift down the Grand on a traditional round tube.

There’s no room for a backpack or much of anything, only a very small side bag (not waterproof) for a beverage and keys.

Our Red Tubes

WARNING:
At the end of your lazy river fun, you will walk about 5 minutes on a beautiful crushed stone uphill path back to our trailer, carrying your 8-pound tube. When you reach the parking lot, you’ll receive a FREE TAXI voucher back to your car.

WEIGHT LIMIT is 250 pounds. If you can’t do a 5 minute walk carrying your 8-pound tube this experience isn’t for you.
