Frequently Asked Questions

Please contact us if you have any questions.

  • When do I need to arrive at the start point?

    With a reservation, you should arrive at least 15 min early to make sure you are at the Reservation Waiver Booth on time to complete your reservation. Arriving at the Parking Booth does not complete your reservation.

  • Why do you not have the waiver online?

    There is a lot of other information that needs to be explained before you leave for your float and this cannot be done over the website.

  • What is the minimum age for river tubing?

    We recommend no one under the age of 5.

  • Why do we need to make a reservation?

    Reservations are a luxury and no longer a requirement. You can come in First come first serve.

  • How do I get back to the start point?

    You have 3 choices:

    1. Use our Shuttle Service. $15.00 per person that rides the bus.

    2. Have 2 vehicles. Park one at the Pembina River Provincial Park, and one here. $5.00 per vehicle. On Hot summer days, the provincial park day use area may be full and have no parking available by 11 am.

    3. Complete your float and walk back to your car here. $5.00 Parking fee per vehicle, 45 min walk.

  • How do I rebook an time slot?

    Plans Change. Weather is Unpredictable. If you need to change your reservation for any reason, you must call us by 10 am the day of your reservation and send an email to pembina.tubing@gmail.com by 2 pm that same day with 2 suggested dates and times you would like to move it to.

    We do not carry over reservations from one year to the next.

  • Can I bring alcohol or cannabis with me down the river?

    The consumption and transportation of alcohol and drugs is both prohibited and illegal. We reserve the right to refuse service if we suspect intoxication or you are caught in possession of liquor or drugs.

  • Can I bring my own tube?

    Yes you can bring your own tube. However, please be mindful of your personal tube’s size and durability, as it may not be suited for the size and conditions of the river. Additionally, we are not liable for any wear or damage on your personal equipment if you decide to use it for river tubing—use at your own risk.

  • What if my tube is damaged? What do I do then?

    If your tube gets damaged, walk back up to the pick up point and wait until your party returns from their tubing trip.

  • Is tubing safe?

    When paying close attention to your surroundings, and following our strict safety guidelines, tubing can be one of the safest—and most enjoyable—experiences to travel down the Pembina River.

    Please note: no life guards are on-duty, and you will be responsible for your (and your children’s) own safety.

  • Will I get wet?

    Yes, water in the river will splash and you will get wet. The bottom of the tubes have holes in them and will allow water to enter.

  • How long is the trip?

    The trip duration will vary, depending on the height of the river for that day. We make age restrictions when the river is at a higher level and we change our closing time because of this. Please watch the home page for these changes.

  • Are picnics allowed on the PRT grounds?

    Yes. We do have picnic tables for you to enjoy a picnic before or after your float. Portable BBQs are also allowed on-site for cooking, but as mentioned earlier, we do not allow campfires for cooking.

  • Can I bring my pet?

    Yes, at your own risk. We do not allow pets to ride on our rental tubes, so you must take your pet with you on your own tube, and it must be on a leash on site grounds. They are not allowed in our tubes because their claws can puncture the tubes, which in that case, you are responsible for the replacement of the tube and/or cover.

    Additionally, please do not leave your pet in your car when you leave for tubing. We have a policy that if a pet is left in the parking lot or vehicle, police are called and the animal is put into protective custody.

  • Is there camping available?

    No, we do not allow camping on-site. Additionally, we do not allow campfires on-site.

  • Where can I park?

    We offer designated parking included with any tubing package and reservation. You must park on designated spots only. Cars in undesignated areas may be towed at the owner’s expense.

  • Are there bathrooms available on the PRT grounds?

    Yes, there are several outdoor bathrooms available on the property.
