LAUNCHING THE EQUIPMENT
We recommend you take your rented kayak, canoe or paddle board out in our beautiful Ganges Harbour. We give you route information and there is lots of wildlife to view, as well as some amazing beaches to spend some time.
Our traditional ocean kayaks launch from our kayak dock and sit-on-top kayaks, canoes and paddle boards launch form a rocky shore. We do need guests to carry the equipment down 4 stairs onto our beach for the rental and return it in the same manner.
If you want to take your rented equipment elsewhere, PLEASE BE AWARE our shoreline has quite a lot of elevation to the road. You will need to lift and carry your equipment up 3 flights of stairs and strap it down to your car. We can supply foam blocks and straps, but we cannot help you carry the equipment.
A valid credit card is required for a damage deposit hold. We pre-authorize/hold $100 for each watercraft rented. Damage fees are equal to 1 or 2 days of rental fees, plus any equipment needing to be purchased/replaced.
We reserve the right to notify guests if their vehicle is not suitable for transporting the rental equipment, if concerned of damage to gear. Any damage to the rental equipment created by the transportation or during the rental is the clients’ financial responsibility.
If you have questions about this, please let us know.
