– Barry D

We have finally added canoe rental to our product line. Great for families with small children as it is easy to keep an eye on them. As well, if you are wanting to fish on the Cowichan Lake this is the choice for you. The canoes offer room to hold all the finishing gear you bring.
PAddle, Enjoy.
