REQUIREMENTS

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST WEAR A MASK ON THE SHUTTLE.

NO EXCEPTIONS.

 

All participants need to be over 50 pounds, competent swimmers, and must sign a waiver. Those under 50 pounds can participate if they are competent swimmers and bring their own personal flotation devices. Wearing secure close toed footwear is highly recommended. Do not bring valuables on the river. Simple hand paddles are supplied to help in case of slow currents at the end of your journey.

SAFETY

  • All participants must sign a waiver upon arrival to rent equipment.

  • River tubing takes place in a natural river. Extreme conditions are possible which are beyond our control. Some sections of the river are fast-flowing. Your safety is in your own hands.

  • The safest position to ride down the river is to sit on your bottom, feet first. Be vigilant at all times by constantly looking downstream for obstacles to avoid - rocks, trees and other river debris.

  • Personal flotation devices must be worn at all times. Helmets are not necessary on the Lazy Float. A properly fitted PFD is "comfortably snug." Children must be accompanied by an adult.

  • If you capsize do not panic. Do not attempt to stand up while in a rapid. Situate yourself on your back with your feet downstream allowing your PFD to keep you afloat. As you float out of the rapid, your head, knees, and toes will be above the water until you reach safety.

  • Only one rider on each tube. Don't tie tubes together while going through rapids.​

  • Be prepared to get wet. Sunscreen, closed toed footwear, a swimsuit, and a head strap for eyeglasses is recommended.

  • Water quality is not tested and Elora Rapids is not responsible for water quality related hazards.

  • If participants need help while on the river, seek assistance from other river tubers or those living and recreating along the river and/or call 911 if possible. The best way to avoid troubling circumstances is to read and abide by the safety guidelines on the waiver and website and ask Elora Rapids staff before beginning your adventure.
