Tubing the Grand is a family run business. We grew up in a lakefront home at the edge of Cambridge. Whether it was canoes, kayaks or sailboats, not one summer day went by when we weren’t out on the water. We’ve gone down our section of the Grand River countless times over the past 25 years Now we want to share our love of nature and this beautiful river with you.
You are sure to enjoy tubing the Grand River and we’re happy you've chosen to share a day with us. There is a reason we call this place home, and we know you'll love it as much as we do.
We chose Turbo Tubes because they are the perfect craft for tubing, rafting and first time kayakers. They come with a kayak paddle so you have control over your direction. They are also very comfortable – You really have to consider that if you’re going to sit in something for hours!
Turbo Tubing is a bit more physical and adventurous. It’s for fit individuals that want a more active experience. You are a true participant in your trip down the river.
