We’re downsizing and renewing our rental fleet. We have 36 rental boats for sale: email ted@canalgallery.com for a full list with prices. Models available include Paluski Ripples, Spirits, Riptides, Swells, Rogues and Explorer kayaks, and Paluski 14, 16, and 16-4 canoes. We also have Wilderness Systems Northstar tandems, and some really cool playboats.

Our rental operation is now open. If you’re looking for some excellent paddling on the Rideau, try us out. Please call ahead: we operate another retail business, and would like to be ready for you, so advance notice is recommended. Call 613-794-3566 to book.

Here’s more:  Open Tuesdays through Sundays.  Our Depot rentals have been discontinued,  so we ‘ll be renting right off the trailer, at the beach in Merrickville, or at any other location in the area.

Still taking reservations for distance rentals. If you want to see the Rideau over a few days or more, we’re keen to rent to you. Don’t forget locking through is free all summer, compliments of Parks Canada. We can launch you anywhere on the Rideau, and pick you up anywhere else. Great rates!

Email ted@canalgallery for more information or to book a boat.
