Pure Life Adventures’ experienced guides lead thrilling canoeing adventures designed to educate and entertain outdoor explorers age 6 and older. The one-day excursion commences when the paddling pair meets in Campbell’s Bay to load into provided canoes. Expert instructors introduce newbies to basic strokes before the fleet of aquanauts glides down lesser-known channels of the Ottawa River. Slipping past islands and coves, pilots of the gently meandering pods can receive further instruction if necessary, or start easily-won splash wars with the local flora.
More experienced paddlers can opt for the two-day whitewater adventure, dropping into rapids on the Madawaska River under the trained eye of a professional guide. Participants receive extensive practical and theoretical instruction on rapid navigation as they take on the challenges of steering through rushing waters and hordes of hitchhiking river otters. After the two-day jaunt, canoe captains boast newfound abilities as Class II or III whitewater paddlers.
Pure Life Adventures
A fifth-generation Pontiac resident, Pure Life Adventures’ owner, Ray Breztloff, stays loyal to his homestead, leading outdoor excursions among the untouched natural surroundings of the Pontiac region and Ottawa Valley. Breztloff and his team of guides train in topics such as canoe instruction, swift-water rescue, and Leave No Trace camping, in which humans depart each campsite as if only a bear had built a fire there. Whether teaching courses or leading expeditions, they help their charges safely enjoy the wilderness with activities such as map-and-compass navigation courses, canoeing trips, and summertime dogsled rides. To make the most of long winters, explorers can strap on snowshoes and trek through the frozen woods or hone their outdoor-survival skills by knitting pine needles into tents on camping trips.
