First time renting with us?
Please continue reading before booking.

While you're here, at your request, our staff are happy to:

  • Demonstrate how to strap down your canoe(s) correctly on your vehicle. You do not need to have a roof rack, we can provide you with the equipment.  Please note most vehicles can only take ONE canoe on a vehicle at a time 
  • Offer paddling advice, such as how to launch your canoe & stroke techniques
  • Explain the uses of any gear items
  • Give you tips on how to avoid damage to the canoe
  • Provide recommendations for paddling routes, scenic views, and trip planning

Although we do all we can to set you up for a memorable time on the water, you are entirely responsible for your actions and the care for our canoe(s) and gear. So please, take care and paddle safely!

Our canoes come complete with all your paddling gear & safety equipment at no extra charge.
