We’re open for business!

From Merrickville:

Our kiosk at The Depot is open until after Labour Day.

You can walk up to our on-the-water location in Merrickville and be paddling in minutes. (See our Rent At The Depot page).

The trip up-river is the best paddling you’ll find anywhere on the Rideau: calm water, lots of wildlife, and  few powerboats to disturb you.  Your host is Harry Hitsman, and he’s eager to get you going fast.

Longer Rentals On The Rideau:

Want a longer rental? Have a group paddle idea?  Want to trip from Kingston to Ottawa?

We deliver and pick up canoes and kayaks up and down the canal, from Kingston to Ottawa.  We’ve done this for ten years, and we’re the specialists in long-distance paddling for families and groups, operating from a trailer that can be anywhere on the system very quickly.
