Stand Up Paddleboard* (SUP) Rates

2018 rates coming soon!

*Due to heavy boating traffic and active dam operations, SUP is prohibited in the Upper Basin, directly adjacent to Niknaks Paddle Shack. Additionally, Parks Canada prohibits SUP users from “locking through”. For this reason, SUP users are required to portage the vessel a short distance to either below Combined Lock (Lower Reach), or above Detached Lock (Swale). Thank you for your understanding and consideration.


Niknaks carries a variety of SUP Boards. Take them off-site and enjoy our watersheds in a new way.
