A tip from friend-of-the-blog and longtime reader Valerie: there’s an outfit in Morell called Kingfisher Outdoors, based in the Morell Welcome Centre, that rents kayaks for use on the Morell River. You can park your car in Morell, they’ll shuttle you up-river, and you kayak back to Morell, which takes, they say, about 2 hours.
They charge $50 per trip for a double kayak, $30 for a single kayak, and there’s a $20 shuttle fee for parties smaller than four. They suggest calling to make a reservation the day before you want to take your trip — you can reach them at (902) 961-2080 and they’re open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
While we’re waiting for our canoe blocks to arrive, we might just take a run out to Morell and give them a try.
