This was a super fun and safe three hours for the kiddos as we floated down the river. Chilled fun for the adults too with beverage holders on each tube. Wish it lasted longer, but we were all happy to get back to the car.

Great Day to float down the river. It was packed because of the heat but the crowd was friendly and made the excursion more interesting.

Thanks for the review Diane. Sounds like you have come on the August long weekend when sunfest is in town. Lake Cowichan does morph into a party location for the weekend as the concert attracts a lot of the younger crowd and that reflects in the river. Any weekend outside of that is a lot more family orientated !
