Water Safety

The upper stretches of the Slocan River are perfect for a leisurely oat on a sunny summer day. It’s important to respect the river and follow these basic guidelines to ensure a safe trip.

  1. Take out of the river before or at Cres- cent Valley Beach Park. River sections below this area become dangerous for boating craft at any water level.
  2. Best boating season is mid-July to mid-September. River levels are usually high and water temperature is cold outside of this time frame.
  3. There are numerous safe access points along the oat section of the Slo- can including the Village of Slocan, Perrys Siding Bridge, Winlaw Bridge, Passmore Bridge, and Slocan Park Bridge. Parking is available as well as waste facilities and info maps.
  4. Leave no trace. Pack out what you pack in. Mesh bags for recyclables and waste are available at participating stores along the river access points.
  5. Bring water, sun screen, and snacks. Float trips almost always exceed time expectations, so be prepared.
  6. Drink responsibly.
  7. The best boating craft are the ones that will withstand punctures and other mishaps. Inner tubes, water park grade tubes, and rafts are suitable. Explorer 200 and similar models are cheap and may contribute to the river garbage problem, leaving the passenger to walk the river instead of oat.
  8. Stay away from log hazards and smaller river channels
  9. Youth and non-swimmers should wear PFDs at all times.
  10. Be respectful to adjacent land owners and fellow oaters.
