Gallan's Miramichi River Tubing FAQs
Where are you located?

Gallan's tubing is on the Main Southwest Miramichi river, about 25 minutes up river from the City of Miramichi, just below the Quarryville Bridge. Our address is 48 Kersey Lane, Route 118 Hwy, Doyles Brook, NB, E9E 2H9. Please visit our Map & Directions page to see us on Google Maps.

----------------------------

What are your hours of operation?

Arrive, signup and launch anytime between 10am and 5pm. Please note the last launch for the Rapids Run is 3 pm.

----------------------------

Should I / Can I reserve tubes?

No, it's all first come first serve. We have lots of tubes! It is nice to get a heads up on groups of 15+.

----------------------------

Can I bring my dog?

No - for a variety of reasons.

----------------------------

Will I get wet?

Yes!

----------------------------

Do you close for bad weather?

Sometimes. Please check our Facebook page status before you drive or give us a call.

----------------------------

Is it supervised?

No. We do monitor the exit point and have our staff boat ready in case you pass by. You may be approached after the bridge to remind you to make your way to the right side of the river for your exit.

----------------------------

Is there any physical work involved?

Yes...sort of. As our seasoned tubers know, when you come to the bridge, if you are on the left hand side of the river, you must make your way to the right hand side. When you reach the exit point, come to shore, gather your tubes, litter and belongings, and come up the stairs in an orderly fashion.

----------------------------

Can we tie together?

Up to 4 tubers + a cooler tube can tie together - we don't recommend more than that since it makes maneuvering hard and it's hard on the tubes too. Remember, you don't need to be attached with a tie to stay together, alot of tubers use their feet to keep a light hold on each other's tubes.

----------------------------

Do you have rope to tie together?

Yes, straps are provided by your shuttle driver or launch point concierge. Is there a fee for the straps

----------------------------

Do your tubes have bottoms?

Our kids/small tubes and cooler tubes have bottoms. Our bigger tubes do not have bottoms.

----------------------------

What payment methods do you have?

Cash only. The convenience store at the top of the hill does have an ATM to withdraw cash.

----------------------------

How should I behave?

We expect all tubers to be respectful of fishermen, private property owners, and other tubers. All standard public rules apply. Stay on your tube and keep safety in mind. Please no shouting, loud music or bad language.

----------------------------

Is there camping nearby?

There is a campground next door. Please call Rte 118 Convenience (506-622-7007) for their services and availability. Otherwise, the Enclosure campground is about 20 minutes away 506-622-0680 (floshideaway.com).

----------------------------

Can I bring glass bottles?

No. Plastic and cans only please.

----------------------------

Can I bring a stryofoam cooler?

No.

----------------------------

How big can my cooler be?

Standard size and smaller.

----------------------------

Should I bring sunblock?

Yes.

----------------------------

Should I bring shoes?

Yes, the riverbed and shore are rocky. Old sneakers are a good idea.

----------------------------

What do I do with my trash?

Keep it with you until you reach the top of the hill at the exit point. We expect all tubers to refrain from littering.

----------------------------

What if nature calls while I'm tubing?

We recommend you "go" before you board the shuttle that takes you to the launch point. There are no restrooms at the launch points or along the tubing runs.

----------------------------

Is the river deep?

Yes it is deep in places. The Main Southwest Miramichi River is a natural river with shallow to deep water depths.

----------------------------

Should I wear a life jacket?

We recommend lifejackets for children and non-swimmers. If you have any doubt in your swimming ability, bring a lifejacket and wear it.

----------------------------

Do you provide or rent life jackets?

No. If you don't have one and need one, the Canadian Red Cross has a program offering lifejackets available for loan at no cost in more than 20 communities throughout Atlantic Canada. High-quality, certified PFDs/life jackets are available on a short-term basis, for use by children, youth and adults taking part in activities in or around water. More info here.

----------------------------

Do I need to sign a waiver?

Yes. Tube rentals require mandatory waiver acceptance upon sign-up and minors must be accompanied by an adult who has signed the waiver claiming responsibility of the minor.

----------------------------

How long will my tubing trip take?

We can only provide approximate and estimated times. All of the times noted by us on our website, in answers to customer questions, or on Facebook, may vary due to tides, water depth, wind, and tubing styles - sometimes the runs will be longer or shorter.

----------------------------

Should I bring my phone/camera/wallet/keys out on the tube?

We don't recommend taking any valuables on the river including expensive sunglasses.

----------------------------

What will I do with my car keys while I'm out tubing?

It's a good idea to check them in at the sign-up point. That way they are on dry land waiting for you to pick them up after your trip is over.

----------------------------

Can I fish and tube?

Yes, but it's fly-fishing only and please familiarize yourself with all rules and regulations.

----------------------------

When does tubing season close?

The day after Labour Day Monday.

----------------------------

Do I ever have to carry my tube and walk instead of float?

You shouldn't have to except when you are carrying your tube to the river and from the river at your exit. We're on the main river so usually there's no walking involved...but at low tide the water can be pretty low after the bridge. It could be possible at that time, but definitely not usual.

----------------------------

Are there any age restrictions?

No, but we usually feel under 3 years is too young. We may refuse tube rentals if we are uncomfortable with a child's age or supervision.

----------------------------

What if I'm on the other side of the river when I'm supposed to exit on the right?

If you have left it too long and have passed the exit point, make your way to the shore and stay put. We'll come get you.

----------------------------

What if I pass the exit point but I'm on the right side?

If you're on the right side and not too far, gather your tubes and belongings and walk up the shore to the exit point. If it's too far, stay put, we'll come and get you.
