We rented a canoe for a paddle from the marina at Otter Bay, Pender Island to Roesland Park, across the Bay. Mermaid Dog were really awesome to deal with, and the gear was excellent. We will be back, one day.

Hired canoes from here. The service was great and very friendly. Would definitely use again. Myself and husband had an amazing canoe trip around Otter Bay and saw lots of wildlife. Lovely way to spend the morning.
