West Canada Creek Tubing




We offer shuttle service if you have your own tubes, kayaks or canoe. 

Canoe Rental. If you have a friend and want to travel together we have canoes and the 2 hour float is flat and fun!



Kayak Rentals. We have kayaks for adults and kids - don't want to get wet, then kayak the West Canada for a great 2 hour trip.

Tube Rental. Rent a tube for the afternoon and enjoy one of our great floats on the West Canada Creek.

Located in Central New York in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains on the pristine West Canada Creek.


Info on River Conditions



Whether you are 8 or 68, tubing is a great way to spend the day.  It is relaxing and fun for everyone so give us a call and set up your trip today

We use two sources of information to determine water levels and conditions.  The first source is the water levels in Hinckley Reservoir.  The second source is the release levels as posted on H2oline.com.

H2oline.com provides the best information on conditions. 

  • Release of less than 300 cfs - poor floating conditions - NO kayak or canoe rentals.
  • Release of 450 - 900 cfs - good floating conditions - all rentals available.
  • Release of 900- 1350 cfs - fast floating conditions - all rentals available - trips will be the shortest published times.
  • Release over 1600 cfs - NO RENTALS

‚ÄčThe flow of the river is measured in CFS (Cubic Feet/Second). This means that XXX CFS are passing a given point every second. A cubic foot of water is 7.48 (~7.5) gallons. So when the river is flowing at 250 CFS - 1,870 gallons of water are passing a given point every second. At 450 CFS, 3,360 gallons are flowing and at 600 CFS 4,488 gallons are flowing.

In terms of water depth and walking....250 CFS means you are going to walk at least once and possibly twice on your trip and the trip time will be closer to the longest time listed. At 450 CFS you may walk only once and trip times will be closer to the middle of the times given. At 600 CFS you will not have to walk as long as you are attentive to your float you will easily avoid all walking and your trip time will be closer to the shorter time listed. . When the river is below 250 CFS we do not recommend floating the river at all as you will have to walk several times.

I would also like to take this opportunity to note that it is important to bring proper footware when tubing. This means wearing a river shoe, old tennis shoe or something that surrounds your foot and will protect it when walking on round slippery rocks. Flip flops, crocs, and other summer footwear are not appropriate for floating our river. If the muddy bottom and shoreline doesn't get them, the slippery rocks certainly will!
