Paddles rents kayaks and paddle-boards by the hour or full day. Customers are invited to travel along the gentle shoreline of the historic Hillsborough River where they will see historic houses, the beautiful Victoria Park coast line and continue up the gentle North River where they will see large homes and the Island's beautiful shore. Our rental options appeal to a broad range of customers of all ages, including watercraft enthusiasts, amateurs, recreational boaters, and tourists. Give us a call to check on availability and reserve times to head out on the water (much like setting a tee time). We'll be operating seasonally from mid June until late September each year. *Anyone under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

Three teenagers and myself with time and energy and desire to see PEI from a different perspective. Prior to our trip I found paddles in a Google search. Once in town it was easy to find although the kids still weren't sure if they wanted to it. The staff member answered their questions, addressed their concerns and so we rented... More

Price was $50 for 2 hours in a double seat kayak which is about normal. I prefer kayaking in calmer rivers as I am a beginner. Would recommend altho an hour would be good.

The staff here were wonderful and accommodating. After calling around to I don't know how many places...they were able to help us, even though they were not officially open for the season. We rented a single kayak and a double kayak. The cost was very reasonable. The staff were really nice and we would definitely return there in the future... More
