"I was very impressed with the store staff and with the quality of the equipment – not only the boat, but also the paddles/skirts/etc. All good stuff and in great shape. Renting a boat can sometimes be a bit of a risk, but I’d recommend WS to anyone who’s looking for peace of mind that they’re going to get top notch gear for a trip." Michael C.

Okay, how do I book?
To reserve a rental please call the Paddling Centre. We will fill out a rental form and get everything booked while on the phone. Please be prepared to give a credit card number, this is to confirm your rental and also acts as a damange deposit. Nothing will be charged on your credit card until the day of the rental. If you have booked a shuttle we will process the payment prior to meeting you at the arranged location. On the day of the rental we will get you to sign the Rental Agreement, please take the time to read it fully. We will have you sign for the value of the boat and equipment. Any fee for damage will be discussed with you before processing. We try to send our stuff out in clean, operational condition. A $10 cleaning fee applies but is avoidable by using some elbow grease, our hose, and a sponge.

To Reserve Boats Please Call Us (705) 342-5324 Thanks!

Rental boats are only at the Paddling Centre on Carling Bay Rd., Nobel!
