Pembina River Tubing Opens For 2021 Season on May 22nd

image

Pembina River Tubing will reopen for the 2021 summer season on May 22nd.

Enjoy breathtaking views of the Pembina River Valley by taking a leisurely float down the Pembina River. During your float, you’ll be able to admire the 62 meter gorge and different kinds of wildlife while bathing in the sun.

Due to the pandemic, tubing rentals and shuttle service are by reservations only with a maximum of six people per reservation. Guests under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian present.

 

The Pembina River float is appropriate for ages 5 and up. Bring plenty of snacks, and water to stay well hydrated and wear a lifejacket or PFD.

Pembina River Tubing 2021 Season

What: Let the staff at Pembina River Tubing enhance your experience by providing you with a tube, a life jacket, secure key storage, and a shuttle back to your vehicle after tubing. You can also leave your car in the parking lot and your keys in the office to keep them secure.

When: Season reopens on May 22, 2021. The season is weather-dependent and is usually open until Labour day weekend.

Hours: The hours vary from 10 am to 04:oo pm and because the river changes in height, the closing time can vary from anywhere from 3:30 to 4:30 pm ( for the last person to leave to the river from the office location.). Pickup from river ~ 7:45 p.m.

Please arrive at the parking booth 15-to-30 minutes before your reservation time to ensure you are at the Waiver/Rental Booth on time.

Remember to exit tubing at one of the two Exit Points. The Pembina River Tubing Company has their own Exit Point, in the park day use area, river right, immediately after the 3rd bridge (bridges 1 & 2 are up high, and side by side).

Alberta Parks advisory cautions, “If you are planning to go tubing on the Pembina River, please be advised that the river does not loop back around the park and will carry you away from the park if you do not exit the river at one of the two Exit Points.”

“Once past the last chance Exit Point, access on and off the river becomes difficult and potentially dangerous. There is no intersection with a road or a bridge until the Rangeton Campground that is several hours downstream.”

Places to go River Tubing and Floating in Alberta

Alberta Parks Guidelines:

More Information

  • Use a good quality raft or tube; avoid “pool toys”.
  • Rocks and tree branches can easily tear poor quality inflatables.
  • Always wear a lifejacket or PFD. Even as a good swimmer, the currents can push and pull you in many ways.
  • Avoid hazards. Logs are a big hazard in the river, and a major factor in river drownings every year.
  • Don’t tie rafts and tubes together or tie yourself to another person. Once hung up on a hazard, the current will quickly submerge you, even if you are wearing a lifejacket or PFD.
  • Trip plan. Tell a friend where you are going, the route, and when you will be back. Carry your phone in a watertight container. Don’t forget the vehicle keys for your drop-off vehicle for your return.
  • Bring plenty of snacks, and water to stay well hydrated. The consumption and transportation of alcohol and drugs is illegal. Intoxication makes it difficult to control your vessel and react to unexpected situations.
  • Floating down a river on a tube, raft, or other floating object meets the definition of “vessel” under the Canada Shipping Act, 2001.
  • All legal requirements pertaining to safety equipment and navigation apply. For more information, please review the Safe Boating Guide published by Transport Canada.
