If you only came with one car and you rented all your equipment from us the cost of pickup is FREE for 1 person (Driver).

About Tubing

Tubing is geared towards teenagers and older, may require a bit of kicking to move you through slow parts of the river and generally takes 2 to 3 hours to complete if you don’t make any long stops along the way.

About Slow Rafting

Unlike white water rafting, slow rafting is ideal for children, families, and corporate team building. The trip begins upstream from the Pinawa Diversion Dam, where the Winnipeg River and the Pinawa Channel starts and runs for about 1 hour and 15 minutes. This trip features beautiful boreal forest, rugged granite walls, and often turtles sunning themselves. A perfect addition to any adventure vacation. Families, youth groups, and corporations
