Have rented canoes with them several times. They are organized and staff us nice. Love that they include a map in your package and the option of a shuttle. We will definitely canoe with them again next year!

Yes it is safe pending type of boat chosen... rafts, yaks and turbo tubes are suggested. Remember this is not the Ottawa River... we host newborns to 92 year olds.
