NEW for 2020 Tubes now feature lounge backrests. Weight limit is 225 pounds.
Turbo Tubing Adventure - Just $35 plus HST
For hours, you’ll journey down the fabulous Grand River. Turbo Tubing is roomier and a bit more adventurous. It’s for fit individuals who want a slightly more active experience.
You can drift with the current but, you can also criss cross the river and explore the islands. Turbo Tubes are also known as Hybrid River Kayaks. They’re stable (not tippy), comfortable and suitable for Tubers and first time kayakers alike.
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. Sometimes guests paddle like they’re in a kayak race and end up 6km down the river in less than two hours. Take your time! Turbo Tubes have more room for snacks and beverages.
They're so comfortable that guests sometimes fall asleep.
Weight limit is 250 pounds.
FREE taxi from our parking area to our launch site is included.
Fun, Thrills, Adventure, Friends.
Our Lazy-River current carries you through kilometers of protected Eagle Habitat, Osprey nesting areas and the Heart of a 1,000 acre Nature Reserve.
Note: Because the tubing is weather dependent, you may rebook or cancel anytime no charge.

After Your Tubing Experience
We're in Cambridge and our Old Galt section is a real gem. Take the time to explore - it's FREE!
The Globe wrote, “Can’t afford to go to Europe, Old Galt is like a European village in Ontario.” It’s a beautiful old limestone city.
Old Galt is “Hollywood North.” Many films, TV shows and commercials are created here.
The Handmaid’s Tale, American Gods, Designated Survivor, Flatliners, 12 Monkeys and many more.
It’s a lovely village-like atmosphere with charming cafes, lively pubs, restaurants, historic mansions and heritage sites all within a short walking distance. It’s also a major wedding destination.
When you return to your car, it’s just a 3 kilometer drive into Old Galt where there’s lots of parking.
Fun places along the river to eat, drink & enjoy
We're sure you'll enjoy your tubing experience and thank you for considering spending your day with us and in Old Galt.
