When are you open?
We are open by appointment only. This allows us the flexibility to be available at times that work for our customers. If you want to come by, check out the shop or talk SUP, send us a message at email@example.com and we'll do our best to accommodate your requested time.
I can't find your phone number, how do i contact you?
As we can not always be available to take a phone call, the best way to contact us for general inquires is by email at firstname.lastname@example.org If you'd like to request a rental, please fill out the form that can be accessed on our Rentals page http://www.oldtownpaddle.com/rentals/
How do I rent a board?
The weather forecast is never a guarantee so we can expect anything from warm, sunny and +30c to cool, extremely windy and +10c. We try our best to avoid windy and wavy conditions, but the first point to point portion of this trip requires us to paddle along an exposed portion of the lake while carrying all of our gear. Once we reach Shelter Bay, there are many areas that are protected from wind of all directions.
The East Arm of Great Slave Lake does not thaw until mid to late June so water temperatures can still be easily under 10c at this time of year.
Should I rent a board, take a course or go on a tour?
Absolutely not! One of the fun parts of this trip is learning the skill of SUP fishing. We will be both casting and trolling from our boards (and from shore) and our experienced guides are happy to spend as much time with our guests to make sure they are comfortable with the skill. We are also going to run a practice clinic prior to our trip on July 14th.
What's involved in your Basic COurse?
No problem! This trip will provide an amazing opportunity just to explore and experience the Spectacular NWT from your Stand Up Paddleboard without having to sink a line! With a high guide to client ratio, we can be sure to tailor this trip to your needs.
Do you offer private lessons?
While the bugs won’t be a problem while paddling on the water (especially if we have a breeze and its warm and sunny), they are the worst in wooded areas and in the early evening and night. However for those who aren’t used to mosquitos, they are potentially too much for some people to handle. We feel that with the proper clothing and bug repellent, those little critters won’t affect your enjoyment on this trip!
