We rented a tandem kayak and tandem, as well as single, SUPs from Bow Valley SUP when we were in Canmore this past week (July 2020). The booking was easy to do online, the staff were very friendly and helpful, esp. for two of us who were brand new to SUP-ing, and the equipment was great, very easy to use (we transported both the kayak and 2 single SUPs to Two Jack Lake on the second day). We thoroughly enjoyed the experience at both the reservoir and Two Jack and would highly recommend Bow Valley SUP rentals.

We rented Half Day Sub Rentals on July 30th for 12:30pm. We called and told them we would be late. Well it was actually really late, but I was determined to at least get an hour the water. We arrived to pick up the boards at 2pm and the gentlemen that help us out were very fast and efficient. We cruised around Johnson Lake and had a great time and got the boards back before they closed. They tried to give us options to keep the boards longer and it was very appreciated. Best place to rent boards if you want great service and quality boards. We will be returning. Thank you 🙏

I have been renting boards for years from Brandon. Impeccable customer service, always keen to ensure that your experience far exceeds your expectations. Highly recommend taking a lesson with Bow Valley SUP if you're looking to tackle the river! I was nervous and yet eager to give it a try given that I lived in Canmore. Ryan and Brandon offered a great group lesson and it was the best thing to do in advance of venturing on my own. Purchased my first SUP from Brandon and only ever recommend my friends to him if they're in the market for renting or buying. You won't regret it!

Excellent place to rent SUP from. Equipment in stellar shape. Pick up location ideal. Staff super helpful and friendly—even got some great restaurant suggestions from them. We went to Two Jack Lake for the day and it was just the right combo of still/peaceful, with a tiny bit of afternoon wind. Not crowded. I would not hesitate to rent from this company again.

Highly recommend Bow Valley SUP. They had exceptional customer service, their SUPs were in great shape and their location was ideal. I had an incredible day on the water enjoying everything the Rockies have to offer. Thanks for making my trip one to remember!

Amazing! Rented two SUPs for the afternoon and took them out to Two Jack Lake. Great quality, sturdy paddle boards. It was such a nice hot day and we didn’t want to leave the lake, so we phoned to see if we could keep them longer and they accommodated our request and didn’t even end up charging us the difference when we returned the boards in the morning. So kind! Highly recommend. Great activity for a hot day in the mountains!

We recently rented a Tandem Inflatable kayak from Bow Valley SUP/Surf and paddled on the Rundle Forebay in Canmore. Everything about the rental was very easy, the kayak was ready for us on arrival and we were even able to take our dog in the kayak with us! If preferred, they will drop off a kayak for you at your house. After the rental, we decided to buy a kayak and they very quickly placed an order for us and it arrived in less than a week!

We rented the inflatable single kayaks and would do it again! We were worried about the weather and colder conditions in early June but Ryan was great to work with. He was very responsive to our questions via eMail prior to our arrival and the morning we picked up our Kayaks he was even more supportive. He showed us what to do and how to set them up. The day of our reservation it was very windy which made us nervous but Ryan provided great recommendations of where to Kayak and provided us with all the details we needed. We picked up the kayaks around 10am, spent about 4 hours on the water and returned them just after 3pm. It was one of our favorite things to do! We highly recommend this place of business and the kayaks!

The service was excellent from the moment I called to clarify rental info. The personnel on site were friendly and efficient and had excellent communication with us. Totally enjoyed my first SUP rental and the location was easy to find too. Forrest Macneil of HBO's "Review" would give this ***** !!!!!!
