Health and Safety is a Priority

Canoe Tours look a little different this year due to COVID-19.  We will be renting an entire boat to a group of friends/family at a flat rate.   As you will be sitting close to the other participants, we feel this was the best way to keep the tours as safe as possible.  Please wear a mask if you like, it is not mandatory.  We encourage you to bring your own PFD, but we do have some that you can use.  We will be sanitizing the boats, paddles and life jackets after each tour.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask.


Cancellation can occur due to extreme and inclement weather
