Footbrace for stern paddler. Length: 17’6″ weight: 60 lbs. material: kevlar capacity: 800 lbs. max 2 persons expertise level: 2

Prospector by Hellman

The HELLMAN PROSPECTOR canoe is similar to a traditional Prospector except it is longer. It handles large waves and rapids and tracks very well. A good choice for any paddler. Webbed seats and foot brace. Length: 17’6″ weight: 60 lbs. material: duralite capacity: 900 lbs. max 2 persons expertise level: 2-3
Circuit Rate: 8 days or less $260 (CDN$)

Prospector by Clipper

The CLIPPER PROSPECTOR canoe is very good for wilderness tripping. It has an excellent loading capacity and is very roomy. Beautiful style. Made for paddlers with some experience but forgiving so suitable for novice paddlers as well. It comes with webbed seats. Length: 17’2″ weight: 68 lbs. material: kevlar/duraflex capacity: 1000 lbs. max 2 persons expertise level: 3
Circuit Rate: 8 days or less $260 (CDN$)

Slocan by Hellman

The Slocan is the perfect river tripping canoe. Its large load capacity of up to 1200 pounds gives you lots of free board even with a large load. With four inches of rocker the Slocan turns fast, surfs well, and is very dry in big waves. The Slocan also has lots of flare in the bow and stern ensuring a dry ride. All in all I think it is one of the best all-around tripping canoes on the market. Length: 17’9″ weight: 62 lbs material: Duralite capacity: 1200 lbs max 2 persons expertise level: 3-4
Circuit Rate: 8 days or less $230 (CDN$)

Circuit Rate: 8 days or less $190 (CDN$)

Solitude by Clipper

A CLIPPER SOLITUDE is a great solo canoe for experienced paddlers. It is very fast and tracks well. Comes with a unique adjustable sliding bucket seat. This canoe will keep up with most tandem canoes. Length: 15’6″ weight: 42 lbs. material: kevlar capacity: 700 lbs. max 1 persons expertise level: 2
Circuit Rate: 8 days or less $200 (CDN$)

Prospector Solo by Clipper

The Prospector 14′ is a solo canoe that is responsive and seaworthy in grade II and III whitewater. Like the larger Prospector, this model shares its classic design, grace on the water, and maneuverability. Its shallow arch hull, 1 ½” of rocker, and the high chine provide a smooth and dry ride through rough water. D-rings mounted on the chine or gunnel will secure gear or float bags. Length: 14′ weight: 42 lbs material: kevlar capacity: 700 lbs. max 1 persons expertise level: 2
Circuit Rate: 8 days or less $200 (CDN$)

Boat Rentals & Accommodations

Our office is located at the lodge. Pass the store building and drive right up to the lodge. Opening hours 8:00am to 6:00pm. If you have rented from us, it is mandatory to come to the office first to sign in, see us and our staff, sign the waiver, sign the damage deposit, finalize your bill, etc. We will have an answer for all the questions you may have and will show you the boats and hand out the equipment you rented for packing your things. We also set up a time for the next morning.

Late Arrival

See our info case next the office for cabin location, camping, washhouse, etc. Most likely your accommodations will be unlocked. The “orientation” is at the BC Parks Registration Center, 2.5 kms down the road.

Returns

After paddling the lakes, you arrive at our beach. A big sign, “Becker’s Landing” welcomes you. To the left of the sign is the trail to the lodge/office. You pick up your car keys, etc. and drive to the beach and load your personal stuff in your vehicle. It is mandatory to clean our equipment. Dirty equipment can’t be accepted. Please don’t flip your boat in the water to clean it. All the dirt will hang up in the gunnel. Take a bailer or two of water and wipe out the boat with your sponge and bail out the dirty water. Very simple. Takes only a couple minutes. Our canoe guide will pick up all our equipment afterwards unless different arrangements have been made (Circuit Economy – return everything to lodge, Cariboo Falls Package – return everything but boat to lodge)

Damage/Dirty/Lost Policy

All rental items, including boats, must be cleaned. If rental equipment is returned in damaged or dirty condition, the renter will be responsible for cleaning and repair costs. Shop rate of $60 per hour will be invoiced with a $20 minimum charge plus any parts or materials for cleaning or repair. Replacement cost for lost, stolen or destroyed rental equipment, including canoes, is at full retail value.

"The equipment was top notch. We appreciate the fact that they have high standards in regards to the return of the equipment because we were able to rent from them with confidence knowing that our canoe was in great shape! Highly recommend!"
