You Can Float For Hours On This Natural 7-km Lazy River In BC

Ride a giant party tube with up to 14 of your friends! 🌊

You Can Float For Hours On This Natural 7-km Lazy River In BC

You can float the day away at this stunning seven-kilometre lazy river in B.C.

The trip starts near Okanagan Lake, and along the way, you'll pass ducks and other wildlife before reaching the bright blue water of Skaha Lake.

The exact float time varies, but you can expect between a two and a half to three-hour ride this year.

To try it for yourself, you can book a tubing adventure with Coyote Cruises, who take care of everything for you, including your life jacket, tube, and will shuttle you back to your vehicle.

But what makes this experience so unique are their inflatable party islands.

Instead of a regular one-person tube, you can book a quad that sits four people, and you can link several together so that you can fit up to 14 people.

If you are eager to try this with your group of friends, you can reserve your spot online for a specific time slot. A single tube is $17.14, while a quad is $100 for four people ($25 a person).
