My family (husband, myself, 3 kids ages 5-13) are excited for our upcoming rental from Houseboat Holidays in August. (We're taking my mother-in-law along, too.)
We have some question that we're hoping someone can answer: Do you recommend we take or rent a canoe/kayak/dighy?
We are considering it because my husband (who is going to the houseboat captain) thinks it might help if we need to get a rope to a dock to tie up, or in case all the dock space is taken at some islands and we want to just anchor and take the dighy to shore. Or, just to explore in places that we can't get the house boat.
Also, how early in the day or how often is all the dock space filled at the Canadian Park Islands? (Our rental includes a pass for free dockage at the Canadian Parks.) What about on the New York side?
How much hassle will we have to cross the border multiple times? We are all US citizens with passports.
