Boating is often an effective way to avoid land-based troubles such as skateboarding sharks and randomly disappearing highway lanes. Enjoy a temporary retreat to non-ground with today's Groupon: for $19, you get a two-hour canoe, double kayak, pedal boat, or rowboat rental for two people from Deer Lake Boat Rentals in Burnaby (a $38.08 value, HST included).
Deer Lake Boat Rentals enables adventurers to get an eye-full of wildlife without having to leave the city on the calm waters of Deer Lake. Rentals place individuals, two adults, or an adult and child, at the helm of a variety of boats ($17 value/hour) requiring varied levels of nautical knowledge. While basic instruction is provided, novices float freely in tip-resistant pedal and rowboats; however, experience is strongly recommended for tandem canoes. For boater safety and proper synchronized swimming rehearsal, all participants must wear provided lifejackets use rental paddles and oars.
During aquatic excursions, wandering boaters may paddle by a summer VSO concert or ask for directions from local blue herons, turtles, and beavers. Oar oscillators also boat under the watchful eyes of a shore-bound lifeguard.
Pedal boats and canoes can hold a third passenger under 10 years old.
Deer Lake Boat Rentals
The abundance of natural splendour surrounding Burnaby's small lake inspired the creation of Deer Lake Boat Rentals. With blue herons standing tall in the waters, eagles soaring overhead, and turtles playing duck-duck-goose with Canadian geese, the region is teeming with wildlife. Fourteen years under the current ownership and opened in 1972, Deer Lake Boat Rentals rent kayaks, rowboats, pedal boats, and canoes to make the lake and its wildlife accessible to families. They are also equally focused on safety, so they provide all the requisite necessities, including lifejackets and staff a skilled crew ready to assist in any way necessary.
