We’re open for business!

Our kiosk at The Depot is open until after Labour Day, and we’re delivering canoes and kayaks up and down the canal, from Kingston to Ottawa.   If you’d like to rent for an hour or a week,  call us to reserve a boat.

You can walk up to our on-the-water location in Merrickville and be paddling in minutes. The trip up-river is the best paddling you’ll find anywhere on the Rideau: calm water, lots of wildlife, few others, and even fewer powerboats to disturb you.  Your host is Harry Hitsman, and he’s eager to get you going quickly.
