We begin the day with a safety and orientation meeting on site at Graves
Landing once the boat and equipment are rigged. Calgary shuttle is included.
For 1 person we generally run the canoe. You can occupy either the centre padded seat, the forward raised paddling seat or switch between them on a landing.
For 2 persons we use a drift boat.
There are advantages to either system.
The canoe is stealth quiet and highly maneuverable. The ride itself close on the water is very relaxing.
The drift boat has pedestal seats, casting platforms, is super stable and comfortable.
The weather can change quickly on the river.
warm clothing (layers are best)
sunglasses (polarized if possible)
We will have some rain gear and extra clothing on board as well.
Lunch, soft drinks and snacks are provided.
Deli submarine sandwiches and usually a salad for lunch or whenever you wish to eat. Please let me know any food allergies or preferences.
Calgary home/hotel shuttle at 8:30 AM is included. You wanted to meet at the launch?
A safety and orientation meeting is held on site at the launch.
Return at about 5-6 PM.
I'll have a quality digital camera along and will be creating a photo log
for you as well.
The canoe ride is memorable in itself.
Have a great day!
Thanks again very much Stephen.
It was a great day for sure. One I won't soon forget. Lots to learn.
Comparing my trip last month on a big fishing boat in Minnewanka to yesterday I can really get a sense of how much work goes into providing a quality Bow river experience. You worked your tail off getting me across the river and back dozens of times and only got to fish the one time. I promise the next time we head out I will set aside a few more hours and we will get some fish on your line too.
The pictures look great and I have one or two I have to get to you too!
