Canoe and Kayak Trips - British Columbia


The Shuswap is a beautiful clear water river flowing out of the Monashees into Sugar Lake where it warms up considerably before continuing on its way to Mable Lake. We mostly paddle the upper river from Sugar Lake to Wilsey Dam but will also paddle Cook Creek to Enderby for the less experienced. We have six different river trips in our itinerary and will suit the trip to your paddling ability. From easy class 1 to bring your Ye-Haw (class 3). We paddle from March through November with approx. a month off in High Water Season. If it's snowing - I ain't going!

Full body wetsuits are provided for shoulder season days. We use ‘Old Town' canoes and day trip kayaks, paddles and life vests are provided. All prices are per person and half hour orientation is included.
