Big Creek tubing offers some of the best eagle sightings, because you are paddling through a forest.
This meandering river is so different from anything else in Ontario. It is narrow and deep, with trees overhanging… and truly fits the description “The Canadian Amazon”.
This is a slow current river, so you will be paddling… it is a 9km tubing adventure.
BIG CREEK Tubing is about a 2 hour drive from Toronto.
We are certified By Ontario Tourism Safe Traveler Stamp… visit our COVID Health Protocols.
