If you're the kind of person who seems to fill every day off and every vacation day with errands, meetups and things to do then you might not actually get a chance to relax on your day off! This summer, you have to put this secret lazy river float on your bucket list.
Kicking back and floating along a cool, picturesque river basically forces relaxation on you. With nothing to do but enjoy the scenery, the sun and the company of your friends, you'll find yourself totally relaxed and refreshed. Whether you have some extra vacation time this summer or you're between semesters, everyone deserves to treat themselves to this incredible tubing trip.
At Lake Cowichan on Vancouver Island, there's a gorgeous lazy river with clean, clear waters that's perfect for floating. The Tube Shack will do all the work for you. You can rent a tube from them and they'll pick you up at the end of the river in their shuttle. You won't have to do any of the planning or logistics because they'll take care of it for you so you can focus on chilling.
It takes between 2.5 to 3 hours to float down the river from Cowichan Lake all the way down to Little Beach. That's plenty of time to soak in the sun and relax. The beach is clearly marked so it's easy to see where you get out of the river to catch your shuttle back.
The Cowichan River is on Vancouver Island. It takes about 3.5 hours and a ferry ride to get from Vancouver to Cowichan Lake where you can launch down your epic 30 KM float down the river. The Tube Shack on Cowichan Lake offers tube rentals and shuttle service starting at $20 per person.
