As there's no other Kayak rental place around them, they will treat you however they want. Kayaking itself is really nice but be prepared for surprises and rude staff.

Started a bit disorganized and some confusion with the booking, but the staff were so friendly and genuinely cared about our experience. I would take that over the corporate standard of customer service any day! Will definitely go back.

Hi, unfortunately, you can only use the groupon for a 2hr rental. You will have to pay the difference depending on how many extra hours you want. Please call Belcarra paddling centre 604-936-0236 to make your booking. Thanks!
