For the tours; kayaking-ages 12 and up; cycling 13 and up (at the very youngest, must be very comfortable riding on road in traffic)

I have a small dog, can fluffy go out on a canoe rental? Yes, your smallish dog is very welcome to paddle with you on a rental. We can not allow pets on our tours however.
Can I leave my dog in the car at your shop while I go paddling? No, I am sorry we cannot allow this, please leave your pet at your accommodations or make a safer plan. Please no dogs tied up and left at the shop either. It is not safe for your pet or fair to them or other customers.
Is the cycling on road? Yes, the riding up here is mostly on road (Cabot Trail Hwy and coastal side roads). If you have your own mountain bikes the national park allows cycling on three trails.
Do you offer bike repair? We try and stock supplies to get you back on the road, and there are larger bike shops in Sydney and Cheticamp.
