The best way to get into the tube was to wade a little way in the river, grab both handles and sit back into the tube. We had a couple of close calls but no one fell in the river.

The Chillin' N Tubing crew will tether your tubes together if you want. We tethered around the cooler tube and it looked like a Daisy. The only downside is that someone was always facing backwards.

It was approximately a 15-min ride to the launch point on Vermillion River. The roads were a little rough but, the bus driver handled it well. Watch out for the tree branches!!!

The Chillin' N Tubing crew brought the tubes and paddles in a trailer and handed them out at the river launch point. Everyone had a stamp so they knew which tubes to give out.

Once we were in our tubes, it was a relaxing float down the river. Unlike Elora Gorge, there are no rapids on this river. It’s the same relaxing pace all the way.

t was easy to see the end point of our float. The Chillin' N Tubing buildings were easily seen as we came around the last turn in the river and the staff was on hand to help us out of the tubes.
