Bear Tubing down Cannon River   Print 

Saturday, August 16 2008, 11:30am - 5:00pm


Bear Tubing at Welch Mill

We're Bear Tubing down the Cannon river valley from Welch Mills with the Minneapolis Movie Bears! Bring your sunscreen, bug spray, and whatever beverages you want (including alcohol!) as long as they're not in glass containers. You can even bring a plastic cooler and tie it into another tube (you'll have to pay extra for the extra tube).

If you're planning on bringing lunch, make sure you have it in a waterproof sac. There is a point about half way down the river that we'll be stopping for lunch.

A VALID DRIVERS LICENSE is required to rent tubes (one deposit per group, maximum 15 tubes under one deposit). Life jackets are available upon request free of charge. We recommend wearing a pair of tennis shoes or sandals on your trip. Anyone ten years of age or under are required to wear a life jacket according to law.

*Glass bottles and containers, styrofoam coolers, kegs, beer bongs, and beads are NOT allowed on the river. Please help us keep the water clean by putting all trash in coolers or plastic bags*
