Salmon Tales and Tubes


1-902-285-2535


Overview

Take a lazy tubing tour on the Clyburn River while learning about this protected species

Join a guide on a short, interpretive walk up the Clyburn Valley trail. Learn about the natural and cultural history of the area, with a focus on the salmon found in the Clyburn River, the challenges they face, and the efforts being made to restore both their habitat and population.

Then explore the Clyburn as you tube gently down the river with two interpreters who guide you on your exploration and point out some of the many species that live here. Get a first-hand look at the obstacles salmon face as they try to navigate the river, and how climate change may affect their success.

$29.40 per participant


Registration is required, and space is limited. To register, visit a campground kiosk or visitor centre, or call 902-285-2535.

There is no age restriction for this program, and small children can join an adult on a tube. Life jackets provided may be too big for most children under the age of 4. Those attending with a small child should bring a suitable life jacket. There is a maximum of 10 participants per program. Registration is required. Cancellations should be made by noon on the day of the program to be eligible for a refund and to ensure the space may be offered to others.

Meet at the Clyburn River Day Use Area. Dress appropriately for the weather and be prepared to apply insect repellant or sunscreen. Visitors should have flip-flops or water shoes and sun protection (i.e., hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen) as well as drinking water and a snack. A change of clothing is recommended (may be left in vehicle). Most find a bathing suit or shorts most comfortable for tubing (you will get wet) and that makes for an easy dip in the river on a hot day. Towels will be provided. Valuables, clothing items and shoes may be stored in the guide’s large waterproof bag. You may wish to bring a smaller bag to have water, snacks and cameras or phones on hand.
