This company has been in business for a long time and knows what they are doing. They have a choice of canoes and kayaks, and provide the necessary safety equipment for your trip. The company delivers to the launch point, and picks up the equipment at the end of your voyage. No lifting required on your part.

Owner, Jamie - teaches you the skills you need to learn before you take your trip, and knows the river's twists, bends and rocks blindfolded. He's owned the business since 1997, and has kayaked for many years prior. Definitely... More

This is something that... More

A must see canoe/kayak trip. I had no idea anything like this existed in Ontario. Very Cool. Dave was our tour guide and he did an outstanding job. Highly recommended.

Wonderful experience with these guys. Canoed for a couple days, used them to book the sites and everything for a group of 5 canoes. Was my first time booking a canoe trip so had a bit of a miscommunication over the phone which was handled superbly by Jamie and the staff. Super accommodating all my stupid questions and very friendly.... More
