Rental Rules

SAFETY FIRST:
If you are renting any kayaks or paddle boards, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO SWIM and be capable of rescuing yourself and anyone else on your rental. Our water is COLD and you have 5 MINUTES of usable strength to get yourself back out of the water before your muscles seize and you cannot move!

  • Please RESPECT all equipment
  • NO dragging equipment
  • NO stepping on equipment
  • Return all gear on time
  • Return all gear to proper area
  • Clean out the kayaks/canoes
  • If you damage any of the equipment and it needs repair, please let us know!

We recommend you take your rented kayak, canoe, boat 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.

We do need our clients to carry the gear down 4 stairs onto our beach for the rental, and return it in the same manor. Our traditional ocean kayaks launch off of our kayak dock.

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 your kayak, canoe, boat or paddle board.

We do reserve the right to tell clients that their vehicle is not suitable for transporting the rental equipment, due to our concern of damage to our gear. Any damage to the rental equipment created by the transportation or during the rental is the clients' financial responsibility to pay for it.

If you are renting our kayaks for a multiday and need to pack your boats, we have a great rental beach for this purpose, which is off our dock, and gives you the time and space you need to pack in peace. This requires you to move your gear down our 3 flights of stairs. We cannot have gear being loaded/unloaded from our dock.

If you have questions about this, please let us know!
