The start is at the end of Hwy 211 at the diversion dam. The finish is at the Pinawa Suspension Bridge.
How long is the float?
It varies between 1 - 4 hrs. The length will depend if you paddle or just float and if there's a head wind.

How do I get there and where do we park?
Follow Hwy 211 to the very end and look for the Pinawa Unplugged tent. Pull up in front of the tent with your vehicle.
