Hey Chris I don't know if you remember me but I bought a Subaru from you and use to see you up Skiing Seymour before. Good to see you posting here and had been following your War Canoe trip around GB. You always had a soft spot for paddle boats Tim

Apparently they've been given a one year reprieve according to the local rag:

Just to update this thread, Ayla is indeed shut down at the narrows. They are however still operating canoe rentals for Pitt Lake. If you phone them they will deliver and pick up canoes to the narrows. I saw quite a few on Monday and talked to the owner about the service.

Many awesome thanks, Point. Been wanting to rent a canoe later on for a paddle with my girlfriend. So I can give them a call .. when the time comes.

Is anyone here knowing Ayla Canoes owner's contact number? I tried to call the number on their website several times and emailed them as well but got no response. I'm planning to hike Widgeon Falls this Saturday.

Thanks a lot for any info you might give!

hmmmm quality canoes for sale? I think I am siding with the fact there will be less yahoos heading up there now.

Latest update is that the Katzie Band has signed a 5 year contract and will be providing a snack bar and canoe service, as well as charging for parking. Due to the late start in the contract signing, they are not sure when they will have a canoe rental service up and running, but it will be in place in the near future. They will not be charge of any trails.

I second that.

There are too many of that kind of sub-species. Last weekend on the Widgeon Creek-Lake Trail met two couples, a group of five, and a pair of young men. That was it.
