Elora Gorge

Tubing Adventures

Come And Join The Excitement.

THE JOURNEY

 

1 HOUR FLOAT - FULL DAY RENTAL

You'll quickly discover why this is the most popular float in the region, if not all of Ontario. There is perhaps no better way to experience the beauty of the Elora Gorge than by floating down it on a river tube. From being swept away by the numerous rapids to peering up at the towering cliffs this is a journey not to be missed. When you've finished your float you can follow the crowds and walk back to the start again and again.

For a thorough explanation of all of the details on how the entire process works when booking with Elora Rapids, including some helpful tips to dealing with long lines at the park, see the FAQ and the video posted below.

  • 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 hands. 

  • The safest position to ride down the river on the tube is to lie on your back, 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. A properly fitted PFD is "comfortably snug." Helmets are mandatory.

  • 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.​

  • 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.
