Shuswap River Float


It’s the ultimate summer activity – kicking back in an inflatable tube, and meandering down a winding river under a blazing hot summer sun.  The Shuswap River Float is a family tradition in this area, and it’s a perfect way to enjoy Mother Nature at her finest. There’s several launch points to pick from, but if you’re new to tubing, or travelling with mini-vagabonds, we recommend Belvidere Park to Tuey Park. You’ll be done in about an hour and a half – with plenty of time to hit the beach. A longer option, if you have about four to five hours to spare, is Eby Hand Launch to Belvidere Park.

The Shuswap River is a salmon spawning ground, so be sure to treat it with the courtesy and respect it deserves, and remember to pack out what you pack in.
