This year Deep Cove Canoe and Kayak Centre celebrates it’s 30th Anniversary of operation! From small beginnings the shop has grown and grown and is very proud to now offer one of the largest and most comprehensive rental fleets in Canada, as well as a retail location where you can buy any kind of kayak-related equipment you could ever need.

We have grown substantially over our three decades of operations. From an original fleet of 16 canoes, 3 rowboats and a few paddleboats, we currently have 150 kayaks and canoes combined that we rent and use for kayaking/canoeing lessons, tours, and other related programmes. In 2004, we added a retail component to our business, namely, a store now called "Deep Cove Outdoors", details of which are outlined in the "Retail Operations" section below.

The success of our business operations is based on our strong involvement with the community, the expertise in the recreation and sport services we offer, also our local knowledge of the surrounding area and environment. We like to build relationships with our clients while striving to provide them with expert advice on how to broaden and enhance their lives with the services we offer, kayak lessons, tours and rentals and the products we sell, kayaks, cross-country skis, snowshoes, accessories and clothing.
