- Any person, of almost any age, that puts in the time and almost no effort will discover that “just floatin” down a river on a warm day suddenly becomes an almost indescribable pleasure.
- The quality of the experience is enhanced by the companionship of new and old friends,
- Rarely is this activity ever done alone – after all what would be the point? To float is to bond.
- people generally tether their assorted flotation contraptions together. Let the party flotilla carry you where ever the wind and current lead.
- Something that floats and a participant can “climb in or climb on” and your good to go.
- Canoes, inner tubes, inflatable rafts or inflatable kayaks, regular kayaks, stand up paddle boards and even pool toys of every description come together to make a flotilla with the help of a few rope scraps
- Generally a floating cooler that remains within easy reach for snacks and re-hydration is essential to the success of the day.
- pre recorded music permitted but don’t be surprised if spontaneous singing and humor begins to erupt at some point along the journey.
- Hot summer days generally offer the most possibilities for a good lazy river float. July and August are prime season for Manitoba floats
- Adaptive floating can occur as soon as the ice leaves and can continue until the ice returns, however canoes and kayaks are more suitable on cooler days when you might want to leave that inflatable swan at home. More caution is demanded when the water is cooler.
- Now here’s the big question = where can i do this? The answer is,,, any river that has a strong enough current to keep you moving down stream even when a headwind breeze occurs.
- we have some organized events on the Pinawa Channel Perhaps this could be the best way to meet some new friends and get involved in some first rate lazy river floating, LEARN MORE
- Local Favorites include the White Mouth River, the Roseau River, the Little Saskatchewan river, the Pinawa Channel, The Broken River, the Shell river, and the Assiniboine river west of Winnipeg (While the Assiniboine River is the closest river to Winnipeg, we suggest that you consider only using Canoes, Kayaks and Rafts as the water is muddy
- do your research for put in and take out points and river conditions.
