You’ll spend your time exploring the Hailstorm Creek Nature Reserve, enjoying the excellent wildlife viewing and unique scenery. Don’t forget to bring along your camera or video camera and capture the moment as you round the bend and, for possibly the first time, see a moose, beaver, heron or loon in it’s natural habitat. The water taxi will return to pick you up at a prearranged time. Don’t miss out on this special trip – the paddling is not strenuous, navigation is easy and this experience can be enjoyed by beginner and expert paddlers alike.
