River Tubing on the Pagua River

Never can you have so much fun with so little effort! Just sit back and let the river take you - this is not an extreme sport!

We were taken very good care of by Malin and David from River Tubing Dominica - rivertubingda@hotmail.com - from the tubes being brought down to the river to managing the floating bar (a coolbox with its own tube). Periods of calm drifting and gentle chats with other floaters were broken by bursts of speed along narrower stretches, usually involving bouncing off rocks and disorientating spinning. All this under the canopy of the rainforest without any sign of civilisation.

So a couple of hours after leaving Hibiscus Cottages, after much laughing and squeeling, the occasional beer and a long stop at a beach en-route, we hauled our tubes out at Silks and went for a well earned drink!
