We have several types of kayaks: the one-person, tandem and sea kayak.

Kayaks are a traditional Inuit boat, and are known for their manoeuvrability. Our kayaks are open-faced; you cannot roll them without falling out or swamping your kayak. Kayaks are steered with two-sided paddles. Tandem kayaks seat one person behind the other. We provide the lifejackets and paddles. Please note that kayaks are not recommended for small children, since they are relatively easy to tip.

Two person kayaks cost $20.00 for the first hour, and $8.00 for every additional hour.
