They are all also super friendly and fun.
Cancelation Policies for Rentals and Tours:
At Pedals & Paddles Adventure Sports, we are made up of real people who understand that life sometimes gets in the way of the best laid plans. Please read and understand these policies so that we can provide you and all our customers with a top-quality customer experience.
When reserved, Pedals & Paddles hold the space and equipment for your adventure and begin planning for it, ensuring staff, supplies and equipment will be available. You will be holding limited spaces and equipment that may sell out.
When taking a tour or rental reservation from May long weekend to September 15th, Pedals & Paddles Adventure Sports requires a credit card # to hold the reservation. Information we will ask is:
3 digit security code on the back
postal code for the mailing address for the card
name on the card
email address (to send confirmation – we never sell our customer list).
Groups of 6 or more, tours and long weekend bookings require 5 days notice for no charge cancellations. Less than 48 hours 100% is charged. Less than 5 days and more than 48 hours 50% is charged to credit card.
All other rentals require a minimum 72 hours notice of cancellation for no charge. A 25% administrative fee (min $25 per boat) will be retained for cancellations within 72 hours of the reservation date. Less than 24 hours %100 is charged.
Remember, there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad gear. We have many cancellations when the forecast is for rain or showers, then we end up having a nice day, or perhaps a short shower. Sunshine Coast has much less rain than Vancouver and the North Shore. When Pedals & Paddles takes a reservation, the kayak is held for you and nobody else. We often find ourselves turning potential customers away due to full reservations, then a bad (and often wrong) forecast results in many last minute cancellations, and we are left with kayaks on the rack. Many outdoors people do have the correct gear and will continue with an adventure no matter the forecast.
All participants of rentals and tours must sign a Liability Waiver which you can download here.
For Youth groups the link to the Parental Consent PDF is here.
Launching Privileges: Sorry, we are unable to accommodate launching and parking for private kayaks and canoes, unless part of your party is renting from Pedals & Paddles. One car and up to 2 kayaks or canoes can launch and park for $10 providing the parties leave and return together. There is a good public access beach just North of us, or Tillicum Bay Marina. Please feel free to come and ask for local advise and knowledge.
