With this tour, Kerry has managed to find a perfect balance between paddling and offering other unique to the area out of the water activities. She has scoped out the local restaurants, knows the best places to eat and get coffee so you are supporting local businesses. In her quest to support Canadian brands, you get to stay in everything from a luxury hotel to an awesome glamping tent where you cook your dinner on the owner built wood burning stove! You will not regret this SUPer experience.
