    With good consistent water levels and some warm temperatures from mid July to mid August, the Puntledge River in Courtenay, B.C. has been very active with tubers this summer. It is very convenient since the river flows through Courtenay and the put in is just on the outskirts of town. There are several places to pull out and previous blogs describe these (  It works best if you can go with another couple or group since then you can leave a car at either end but you can also leave a bike at the take out and cycle back to your car if you have one car. Tubing is alot of fun and a great way to spend time with friends or family. Here are several pictures from the river this summer.
