What you'll do

You’ll meet me at a local entry point to the Big East River at 10am with parking available on site and be briefed on weather, water conditions, safety and the itinerary for the day. You’ll experience an immersive guided paddling tour by canoe and/or kayak down the Big East River, a local favourite and ancient glacial spillway with sandy beaches, clear water and lush greenery. We’ll stop along the way to swim, eat and take photos. You’ll paddle through towering sand cliffs at Big Bend in Arrowhead Provincial Park with the opportunity to visit stunning Stubbs Falls should water levels allow. We’ll end our journey at the entry point of Arrowhead Provincial Park at 2pm where there will be arranged transportation back to your vehicle on Williamsport Road.

Where you'll be

We will paddle through idyllic forests of pine and maple, photo worthy beaches, and pass through renowned Arrowhead Provincial Park which includes paddling through Big Bend, a towering sand bank corner that most only experience from the Lookout. We’ll paddle up to stunning Stubbs Falls should the water level allow for photos and even swimming. Paddling this river is calm and peaceful with a relaxed feeling of remoteness while still close to town.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 5 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Guests should be physically capable of swimming with a PFD on, assisting in lifting a canoe, and able to paddle with some instruction.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

Some paddling experience is ideal but not necessary. It is more important you come prepared for the weather and length of time we’ll be on the water along with a positive, laid back attitude!
