We’re anxiously awaiting the day when Covid-19 lockdown will be lifted. We hope to open for the season on Friday June 4th. Once we’re assured we can open up, rental reservations will be available to book. In the meantime practice patience, stay safe and keep well.
For those paddling their own boats during the off-season, be sure to paddle with someone in another boat for rescues, dress for immersion and wear a drysuit (learn about cold-water shock), don’t paddle after sunset, waterproof your cell phone, and watch your hourly weather forecasts, radar, & especially winds with great care at this time of year. Stay safe everyone!
